That's the time it took for Shawn to complete his first 1/2 marathon! For the record that is running 13.1 miles. He said his first goal was to complete it and his second was to complete it in under 2 hours. Complete it. Check. Under 2 hours. Check. This wife is so proud I was nearly brought to tears five times. Five times because that's the beginning, 5 miles, 8 miles, 11 miles, and the finish. He did so awesome!! Here is a rundown in pictures:
Excited to start!
In line to race:
Despite the freezing, 45 degree weather, I'm hot after the first 5 miles!
Finish, #354 out of an estimated 1000!
Recovering, I'm beat! I loved it! Cheering wore my littlest fan out.
Happy family! She's got some big shoes to fill, but I think that she will certainly try!
A side note from myself, notice the winter coat, scarf, and hat. Where is the May flowers, warm temperatures, and sunny days? I'm hoping they come soon!
