My Excuse

Running is hard! That is why I didn't post yesterday.

Yesterday, I finished the Marine Corp Marathon 10K race. I didn't go as fast as I wanted, but I finished. I even have a cool medal to prove it...but I won't be a dork and wear it after race day.

I was tempted though...I just wore the t-shirt to FSI today instead.

My wife, however, is the really impressive one. Last year, she did the MCM 10K.

This year, she did the marathon!

I am so proud of her I just cannot tell you.

And do you know how much this woman loves me? After 26 miles, she kicked it up and RAN up the hill to the Iwo Jima memorial so she would look good for me. I have a great shot of her smiling and waving at me!

Everyone should be so lucky as to have a wife like mine!

Congrats! The last run I did was a 5K, and that was plenty for me. Some friends and I saw all of you sporty types finishing up- it seemed a little crappy that after doing a 26.2 mile race, you still had to schlep up the hill to the metro station!

Seriously, though, that's very cool (for both of you). You had a gorgeous day for it, too.
