Whilst Gwendolyn secured beauty sleep before her big run in The Pittsburgh Marathon, I snapped photographs of the gorgeous view.
Hours later, at half past six, Gwendolyn observed her fellow runners.
And a divine sunrise!
Merrily operating on this energetic morning, The Duquesne Incline coloured the landscape with prettiness.
One more peek at her fellow runners…
And it was time.
Gwendolyn bolted from the starting blocks.
Rounding a corner, she rushed past a hot dog stand.
But there is always time to stop for fans.
And for Starbucks.
The race was close, but Gwendolyn kept the lead.
Gorgeous, thin bodies.
Twirling for her fans, Gwendolyn was almost overtaken by a fast runner!
But she pulled through.
And Gwendolyn earned first place in the Pittsburgh Marathon.
She celebrated with Fresh Coffee.
Congratulations to all of the runners.
Especially to the actual winner, James Kirwa.
Gwendolyn will try harder next year. ;)
