Tod's first marathon

On May 15th, Tod ran his first full marathon. We were lucky it was a gorgeous day. We were even luckier that our families thought it would be fun to take the boys for the weekend. Thank you guys again.

His time was 3:48. The only thing Tod said when he crossed the finish line was, "That was really hard." Then he walked away. Tod is the king of understatements. Today we were talking about the pioneers and he commented, "I mean...they were totally persecuted and forced out of their homes. That would really, really make me mad." Yeah, bummer for them...
Gynene M...these guys are incredible. They have been so supportive and really pushed Tod to finish strong.

This was her 14th marathon.
Amy ran this one and shaved almost an hour off her last time. She didn't even break a sweat. See picture below...it was eeeeeeasy.

I loved being a spectator. I enjoyed ice cream the night before, sleeping in, eating a slow breakfast, hot shower, then a leisurely walk to the finish line with my camera. So much easier than a marathon.



Good job you two. You made us proud. See you next Saturday. Tod and I are going for marathon #2.
It was nice knowing all of you.

Nice work Tod! Holly are you doing the UV marathon next week? I was going to pre-injury. I ran for the first time in six weeks Wed. It sucked.

Yea! Such an impressive time Tod. Can't wait to see you guys this weekend! I must say, Tod looks like he is wearing a few too many layers of clothing to be running 26 miles.
