Marathon Man

HE DID IT!!!! 26.2 miles in 3 hours, 28 minutes and 3 seconds. So great! I was so proud. It was really fun to see him at the start of the race, go to the checkpoints at the 9 and 13 mile markers and then to wait for him at the finish line. I was so excited, I couldn't believe his excellent time! Afterwards we went to Pizza Papalis with his parents and then home to rest where we surveyed the damage:


Ouch! You lay there babe, you deserve a break!

That was by far the highlight of the weekend. But other fun things were attending the love and respect seminar. Well, the conference wasn't that "fun" per se, but good info. Based on their book, which is awesome. Our friends Liz and Mark went with us and we went out to Chilis Friday night with them. 3 baskets of chips and salsa later... mmmmmm.

On Saturday after the conference and after cleaning my grandparent's house, Hubbs and I stopped by the cider mill where I got both cinnamon donuts and a caramel apple, yum! I love fall!

Hubbs enjoyed a Knockwurst

The cider mill even had a girl playing the bagpipes, which I really enjoyed, this kid didn't, but he must have picky music tastes because she was good

Hubbs and I had a windy trip down to Detroit the day before the marathon to pick up his race packet. It was fun doing that together with him and seeing how beautiful some parts of our city really are.

It was a great weekend and we are so thankful for friends, our marriage, good health and strong bodies :)
