Mike's Marathon!





Mike ran the Dallas White Rock Marathon in December. He did amazing and I was so proud and impressed. He had been training since September and then at the end of November he injured his knee. He didn't decide until the week of the marathon that he was for sure going to do it. He was determined to do it after months of early morning runs etc...The day of the race was horrible weather. It was 80 degrees, humid, and 40 mph winds. All of his training partners finished as well, but all said it was miserable. The times were much slower than in previous years, but they all ran 26.2 miles! I think he will do another one next year, but all of us wives are hoping for somewhere fun and with more predictable weather than Dallas.

Way to go Mike! That's an awesome accomplishment. You could run in Minnesota, you'd just need some boots and an ear band :) 80 degrees sounds like Heaven to me...

Wow, that's incredible!! We are all proud of you here in NC!

Ha, we told the story about your houdini dog and how we dog-sat him and he kept getting out of all our fences tonight in small group. Not sure how we got to that point, but funny none-the-less.
