If you were like us and were too lazy to get up for the L.A. Marathon on a Daylight Savings day, these selfies will make you feel like you were there.About 25,000 people took part in the marathon this morning, which ran from Dodger Stadium to near the Santa Monica Pier. And as any good Angeleno knows, if you didn’t take a selfie, it might as well not have happened.

This girl managed to take video while running 26 miles.

Gotta stop to take a Britney Walk of Fame pic while running, duh.

Congrats to everyone who ran!
