Anthony was SO supportive of me while I trained for my first 1/2 Marathon. After he saw that I was able to do one and ENJOY it he was sure he wanted to do one too! He signed up for the Rock n Roll 1/2 Marathon in VA Beach Labor Day weekend, September 6, 2009. He did AWESOME!!! He was much faster than me and I was SO proud of him and happy I could be there to cheer him on!
at the Expo to pick up his race packet
Jackson is always willing to give us a laugh!
up bright and early! my sisters were amazing and offered to watch the kids for us while we were at the race. i know the boys would have enjoyed it in some ways but it was so nice to be able to watch without wondering if a child had wondered off! there were SO many people. seriously ridiculous! i didn't even see Anthony cross the finish line because there were so many people and it was hard to find him! i was really bummed about that but i loved being there to support him and he did such an AMAZING job!
he convinced Chris to join him in his madness and sign up for the race. i think Chris was really wishing he hadn't agreed but he was a trooper and finished his first (maybe his last) 1/2 marathon too!
Cody was such a good boy!!!
we ran into a friend from LU, Bethany Gadomski Walter! this was her first 1/2 marathon too! and imagine that in a crowd of over 16,000 runners!!!
had to get a picture of Woody the Cowboy! i can NOT imagine running a race in a costume much less in 80 degree weather! what in the world???
here he comes...mile 11 and looking GREAT!
Good job Chris! finished in 2:16:00
so proud of my man!
