so i leave the hubbs and boys in the bed and get up all early to register and then it begins. i'm REALLY tired towards the end b/c it was pretty hilly and i was unprepared for that. well. . . THIS IS WHAT I FOUND AT THE END> >> >
(please excuse very sweaty and unflattering picture) actually kevin had a sign too. . . i just don't have that picture. my heart melted. and yes. . i cried. i swear they made me feel like an olympian. and in their eyes maybe i was for a few minutes.
later there was a one mile fun run and kevin ran it with the boys. he was totally not expecting that. one of the many things i adore about him. he will do anything for us. so. . . this is the pic i caught of russ coming in. i think he was like the last person.
so. . moving on. . . i did another race a few months after that. it was freakishly hot (in spring) and at the wrong time of the month. yes. i said it. it was pretty miserable. lesson learned. but it was the susan g. koman race for the cure. and my paternal grandmother died of breast cancer. i did it for her. and took her memory w/me during the run
