Mayorz Marathon Start Line!

We're about ready for the gun to go off to officially start the furst ever Blogville Mayorz Marathon!  These runners have been training for MONTHS in order to complete this challenging 26.2 mile course!  Because we have so many runners, we will start in 3 waves.  Since all runners are wearing microchips, their times will automatically be adjusted so that the runners starting after the first wave are not penalized.  

Be sure to follow the links on the bottom of the posts so you can follow whole race!




Runners ready . . . set . . . 


The pawticipants are all off and running!  The excitement is crazy!
Let's see the runners on these first miles!

(You may need to bigify the photos to read the dialog.)  Our first runners come into Mile 1!



So far the pack is staying close together!


And now they're coming into Mile 2!


How did that squirrel get on the course?


Mile 3 and everyone is still in good shape!



Mile 4 is always a bit confusing.  Will anyone go the wrong way?  Oh, the Mayorz have pulled into the First Aid tent! Ut oh, Murphy noticed Jakey has a ball!  Oreo hitches a ride!


Yikes, now Easy is in the First Aid tent!


It's really early and there are still many miles ahead for the runners!  Follow them along the course by clicking HERE!
