Marathon Friday

I was mentioning in yesterday's post that oddly I didn't see the Arc de Triomphe at the official finish line for the Honolulu Marathon. The marathon is this Sunday. Well, it turns out that my eyes weren't seeing things, or is it, deceiving me. I mean the crew didn't start erecting the Arc de Triomphe until this morning. In the pic above the workers are scaffolding the columns and the architrave, the horizontal beam or bridge in this case. I believe that perch is for the tv cameras. Anyways, below, is the Arc de Honolulu that the finishers run under with their arms up in victory if you equate pain and exhaustion to victory. Their feat never ceases to amaze me. Their feet, too. Every year.
