1/2 Marathon Trail Run

Greg ran a 1/2 marathon lat Saturday- it was at our very favorite park- Bur Mill Park. Clara and I (Nicolle) rode my bike around on the bike paths to meet up with Greg and cheer him on as he ran on the hiking trails. We all had a great time-
  • Greg loved the race
  • Clara loved watching the runners (she thought it was hilarious that they would dump water on their heads and then drop the cup and run away... without getting in trouble! -A TWO YEAR OLD'S DREAM COME TRUE!)
  • Nicolle loved taking in the beauty of the trails around the lake and dreaming of living in a house right by the trail... someday.
  • Greg finished in less than 2 hours and 30 minutes(by 40 seconds)
Clara painted this sign all by herself... the "Go Daddy Go" was a little covered in paint by the time she was finished.
Greg did a fantastic job on a very tough course. Way to go!!!
(Here he is right after the race- Alive, but barely).

Awesome Greg...I've tried to get back into the spirit of running and it's weak.
