Mayorz Marathon 2015



Welcome, Blogville!
Well our runners in the First Ever Mayorz Marathon are coming through Mile 5.  It's a long run today--25 miles.
A few front runners have charged ahead, but here we're seeing those pups whose strategy is to go slow and steady and make their moves closer to the finish line.
We have the Blogville Police Chopper here, it'll move along as the runners go through.

 Mile 6 and the crowd has thinned out some!  A few have baulked at the bridge--unsure it's safe.
But everything has been checked and double checked to ensure safety and security.
A few have stopped for a quick dip in the river.
Even one of the Mayorz.

Now they've come up the hill, around the bend and into town.

They're going past the Pastoral Hotel (hotels in Oz are Pubs.)

We think we may have lost a few runners,  the call of a drink is just too much.
Hey Guys, there's still A LONG WAY to GO!




And Madi's providing FREE drinks just AHEAD!  
Good Luck, everyone!  Keep going!

  1. Keep up the good work everyone and be sure to stop for a drink. I will have foodables ready at the finish so you can relax. Watch for my pizza truck I will be driving around all day.

  19. Must have been confusing with the runners facing all different directions. Did you start in two places and meet in the middle?

  24. That dip in the river at mile 6 was exactly what we needed! Our paws were getting sort of heated up and that cooled us right off. But we did notice a few runners sneaking into that bar. Thanks for a great section of the race!

    Your Pals,
