What a wonderful way to start the new year and this 1000 mile journey! Today was the second day of the New Year’s Double in Allen, Texas. I had the pleasure of running a half marathon with two of my daughters – Christina and Ashley. The temperature was a refreshing(?) 37 degrees with a brisk wind and cloudy skies. While there were many memorable times in this race my favorite two are:
Rounding the corner at mile 13 to see my wife, Kathryn, and daughter, Christina, cheering us on to the finish. Note: Christina had finished the race 58 minutes earlier and had already changed clothes, rested, had snacks, etc. She is a three time Ironman so it was just an honor to run the race with her!!
- Trying to out sprint daughter, Ashley to the finish line. What was I thinking? I should have known that she would save some energy to beat her dear old Dad! Just wait until next time Ashley!!
I can’t wait to see what the rest of the year will bring. If you would like to support my fundraising efforts please visit my site at http://www.crowdrise.com/1000milesofmemories/
