>Racing>LA Marathon Race Report
Needs more cowbell!
So, I lean over to pose with my husband, and she says, “oh no, just you.” I look at her kind of funny, and she says she’s taking pictures for fashion & style at the race. She’s eyeing my skirt. Oh yes, the little black skirt. My husband laughed, said I’d be on perezhilton.com or something, and I knew that if I didn’t win the race, at least I was fashionable.
The course might not have been the prettiest, but it certainly reflects LA. And those fans in South and East LA were the best. People in LA sure love LA, and it shows on a hot day when they’re out there supporting 25,000 runners. Thrilled to have completed my first marathon here.

Bring it on.
Great job and thanks for the excellent race report. My best friend ran it too (her first also) and I haven't gotten the full recap from her yet, so I'm excited to hear about it.
I'd love to hear what your friend thought!
