Half Marathon

Today was a gorgeous day.  Low humidity, mild temperatures, a day meant to be spent outdoors.  It was the perfect day for Chris' first half marathon.  The ING Rock 'n Roll Philadelphia Half Marathon that finished in front of the Art Museum with a Bon Jovi Tribute band playing.  

There were 19,000 people that raced and Chris finished it in 2:09:28, placing 8207 overall.  Congratulations, Chris!  We couldn't be prouder of you for accomplishing your goal!  

Chris woke up early and headed up for the run and the girls and I joined him a couple of minutes after he finished the race and the girls took turns wearing his medal.  Since it was such a nice day we stayed for a while and had a picnic lunch in the shade, listened to the music and enjoyed some great people watching.  It was a great way to spend the afternoon.

Good for Chris! I cannot imagine running a mile, never mind a half marathon! So glad that you had such nice weather and a great afternoon together.
