– There was no sunshine, but the rain stopped before Stockade-athon 2013 passed through the Stockade Historic District neighborhood, and spirits seemed high on the road and curbside. –
There are over forty photos in the Slideshow that accompanies this webposting, which focuses on the first wave of runners reaching Lawrence the Indian in the Stockade district, the halfway point of the race. I moved on from the Circle right after master runner Emily Bryans (who placed 101 overall) passed by. After that, I took most of my photos at the intersection of Front St., Washington Avenue and Cucumber Alley. The result is the posting “people-watching at Stockade-athon 2013,” which has an additional 110 photos. If you’re hungry for even more images of the Stockade-athon in the Stockade neighborhood, click here for a posting with links to our extensive Stockade-athon photo coverage, from 2009 – 2012.
