Just two days before attempting her first marathon, we photographed softball legend Jennie Finch at James Weber Studio (jamesweberstudio.com) in Manhattan. The Louisiana local was in town to run the 2011 New York City Marathon. Jennie was all smiles as she prepared to start in last place at the race – for every runner she passed, Timex promised to donate $1 to the New York Road Runners Youth Program.
As a two-time Olympic-medalist, Jennie is no stranger to tough competition. But she admitted being a little nervous about running 26.2 miles for the very first time – especially after giving birth to her second son, Diesel, just four months prior to the race!
