Dan ran his first marathon and he did great! It was a super cold day but he trained hard and it paid off! He accomplished his goal. His parents and my sister, along with Carter were all along for the ride to cheer him on. We were able to see him at mile 5, 13, 18, 20 and at the finish line. It was a fun day to drive all around Richmond and be able to see him so many times and be able to cheer on the other runners! Way to go Daddy!!

We heard about a program through friends called Healthy Kids Running series which is a series of races for kids to run each week, based on their age, they run a certain distance each Sunday and try to improve their time. Carter had to run a 400 (1/4 a mile) and Sean had to run a mile. The first week was tough for Sean as he ran super fast and really exerted himself and was shocked with how bad he felt after running. But each week he was recovering much quicker after his mile. Sean was able to take off 30 seconds from his first time to his last finishing at a 7:04 mile and Carter ended up coming in 2nd overall for the girls age group of K-1st graders. Dan and I both love to run so hopefully the kids will also enjoy it as well.
