I am a little late posting but my husband Aaron ran the full Cleveland Marathon on Sunday the 19th! I am so incredibly proud of him. He has never ran a full before and he did it! It took him 4:48. He was hoping to get 4:30 or under but for his first time I think its great! :) He has never ran more than 20 miles before this. :)
Here is a pic of him and our daughter Paige after.
We all made the hour drive to be there for him. We got there around 6am and the race started at 7. Paige and I hung out in the car until around 8:45 (she thankfully fell back asleep until 8:30!) when I knew if we started walking we would probably spot him at where it splits from the people who run the half marathon. We did see him!! He is the one in the blue shirt.
Now remember, this is normally where he would be at the home stretch for the half and be almost done... nope... he still had another 13+ miles. I felt so bad for the people lol.
We also saw his friend Joel at the split! Who knows what he is doing. He is a goofball.
It was a long day of waiting until he finished but I am so glad we were there when he got done. :D We hung out at the Rock and Roll hall of fame while we waited. At least there was something to do lol
So yesterday I had 2 NSV's! One - I was able to put 2 of my rings back on my fingers that I haven't been able to wear in quite a long time. One is a promise ring Aaron gave me when we were dating. Two - I went a bought 2 shirts... both were large and not XL or 1X! I took a pic of course lol I love it!
I am at 205. SO CLOSE to being to onderland. SOON!!! :)
Ok enough talking. :)
