Oct. 2006: LB Marathoners in the midst of mile 20 (Atherton approaching Clark) at about 11:00 a.m. Oct. 15 along the 26.2 mile course. They're probably about to "hit the wall," a feeling of exhaustion that comes at about this point in Marathons.

Runners head south on Clark appraoching 21 mile mark along upgrade to PCH...which probably feels like Mt. Everest after pounding the pavement from downtown LB since 7:30 a.m. They're all winners in our book.
