Where's Pete B?

I was sitting at my local yoga studio, leafing through Chicago Athlete magazine, and saw a two page picture they had of the start of the 2012 Chicago Marathon. In true "Where's Waldo" fashion, I scanned the two pages to see if I was somewhere in the picture:
Where's Pete B? Hint: Can you see the red arrow?
Found!

It pays to wear a goofy yellow ski hat so you can find yourself in a crowd of white hats and bare heads. Also, at that point it looks like I was only about a minute behind the Kenyans! Somehow I lost contact with them and they finished over an hour ahead of me!

  2. That is hilarious that you actually found yourself--awesome!
    Years ago when Fleet Feet did the Nike Women's 5k/10k they had a huge, backlit pic of it in their store. Yours truly was featured prominently haha! 15 minutes of fame!

    1. Cool story. My image is tiny. It is better to be in a huge pic inside Fleet Feet!

    1. That's cool. Did you get it framed? I think my pic is too small for framing!
