On another completely different note from this morning, I just want to express a 'momma-bear-proud-moment' with you all.....
And although Peter would say I am making a bigger deal out of this then I should [it's usually what i tend to do!], I am super proud of my husband, who this past weekend ran the Canadian Derby Edmonton 1/2 marathon in 1:40:54! Pretty darn impressive, no?
I think that works out to 137 out of 1261 people! That's pretty cool, babe.
What a guy. And I love him so.
Also, I want to mention Peter's Uncle Mietek, who ran the 1/2 marathon in 1:30:08 [he's our family runner!].....
....And our very talented friend, Chris, who ran the full Marathon in 2:43:13! Yeah, he's kinda a wicked running phenomenon. 4th in the City! Congrat's Gentlemen.
Way to go! That is amazing.ReplyDelete
I thought so too :)Delete
You guys are such a cute couple. I really do love hearing about your day-to-day :)ReplyDelete
Good job boys, and that shirt of yours is super cute!
Thanks Gemma :)Delete
Way to go Pistol!!! You should have asked your athletic mother-in-law to join you in the marathon!! lolReplyDelete
LOL!!!!!!! Oh mom, you would have taken some other poor runner down or something!Delete
That is an amazing time! I have my first 1/2 marathon in October, and still am hoping to cross the line before all the vendors start packing up and going on. There better at least be one balloon left on the golden arch. I think I put on my registration that I hope to finish within 4 hours. Ha!! Great job to your hubby. That really is something he should be so proud of!ReplyDelete
I'm just impressed that you are doing it! Way to go! I don't think I'd have it in me, but I am in awe of all you runners out there.Delete
ANd I'm surr you'll get your balloon at the end. If not, I'll mail you one ;)
Super cute shirt. That's a great time- In the 12 halves I've done I've never come close to that!ReplyDelete
Okay, two things:Delete
1] TWELVE [12!] halves! You insane woman! Good for you! I can't finish 5 km, let alone run 21, so hats off to you lady! I really am impressed.....now make the trip up to do the 1/2 in Edmonton next year so we can meet :)
2] Thanks....the shirt is from threadless. Heard of it? Artists design a print and they put it on a shirt. Very cool place. I think you'd love it....especially with all your book-loving tees.
