Marathon Weekend

So… I ran a marathon this year.  Well, I should say I ran *in* a marathon, and finished a marathon walking.  That was my initial goal, to finish upright – and that I did.

Twelve hours before the race start, I had no intention of doing it.  This is so true, I’m pretty sure I had two desserts the night before, and definitely had fried food and all sorts of other non-race-friendly food for days before.

Oh, and I hadn’t run in months, and my longest run was 9 miles.  These are probably all reasons you haven’t really read about it here, and are still mostly going to see pictures of the trip surrounding said race.

Because the trip?  The trip was awesome. 🙂

And this boy met us at the airport. Perfect 🙂

 

We missed our kiddos a little, but I have to say – I could get used to a yearly trip without them! 🙂

Lots of fun pictures of the course, rare character sightings, etc in the zenfolio album!  The cruise album is also complete, if you missed those 🙂
