Francine In Retirement
Seeing Life Through Photography



This weekend the city of Pittsburgh held a 26 mile marathon with more than 25,000 runners from 49 states and 15 countries.  I hope you enjoy the photos I took of this event in the below pictures and slide show.

ACTS 20:24

“I do not consider my life of any account as dear to

myself, in order that I may finish my course,

and the ministry which I received from the

Lord Jesus, to testify solemnly of the

gospel of the grace of God.”

2 Timothy 4:7

“I have fought the good fight,

I have finished the course,

I have kept the faith.”

If any of you have eight minutes and you would like to see more photos on the marathon please watch the YouTube video I made below or download to view at a later time.
