Half Marathon!

Emily and I are official FINISHERS of the Windermere Half Marathon! It was a beautiful race through Spokane, from the Valley to Downtown along the beautiful Spokane river. We could not have asked for a more beautiful day! All in all, the race went wonderfully and we are both feeling good this evening! After the race, the boys enjoyed some time playing on the Big Red Wagon in the park. We grabbed some lunch and headed home. Matt was such a trooper bringing the boys up early this morning all by himself! Matt, I am so proud of you! ;o) It was the best feeling coming up to the finish line and seeing all my boys there waiting for me! We are over half way through our training for the Missoula Marathon in July... Just when I think there is no way I could run that far, we train, and push through the distance. It's a great feeling. Even though I am certainly not the fastest runner, there is such a sense of accomplishment in completing something I never thought possible. Thanks for sharing this journey with me, Emily. It is such a joy!

Finish Line, Here I Come!
Love the medals!
Big hugs from my big boys!
These guys are the ones who really make me race each day! ;o)
