1/2 Marathon-past due-

Memorial Day 2009

Jared ran his first half marathon!
It was excellent weather and so exciting to see him run. I always get emotional when I see people pass the finish line. I love to hear the crowd cheering them on, and I love the see the satisfaction and pride on the runners faces.

Jared did amazing. His goal was to finish without walking, he surpassed his goal and got a great time to boot. 2 hours and 6 minutes!!!!

He is amazing. Good job Jared!!!!

That would be why he keeps beating the pants off me for biggest loser. Cool. That's a long long race.

Jared said...

Thanks Anna, wish I would have taken some before pictures so I didn't look so red faced tired. It was really nice to see my family at the finish line. Love you guys.
