Half Marathon

playing catch up from September 2009
One of Drew's goals has always been to run a half marathon. So, knowing that this would probably be the last September we are here, he decided to run the Air Force Half Marathon. He convinced me to run it with him (which was a feat in and of itself) Back in June, while running, my foot started hurting. After a trip to the Dr. and Physical Therapist, I found out I had tendonitis in 3 tendons in my ankle. So, no more running for me.

But, Drew kept at it. He kept training and running, and running and training. And, in the middle of September, on a chilly Saturday morning, he was standing at the starting line.

He ran the half marathon. 13.1 miles. It took him all over the base and halfway around the city.

We are so proud of him. He worked really hard for this goal and reached, even beating his best time by about 20 minutes!

After the race, waiting for a friend, who ran the full marathon.
K cheering on her daddy! She was doing so good cheering for everyone that was running.

Finally finished!

Daddy with his biggest supporters!

Congratulations Drew!

That is awesome! I am always impressed with people that run long distances. And, I'm sorry about your ankle. Bummer.
