This past weekend Ryan and I drove to Utah for the Salt Lake half marathon. We left Friday after work and didn't arrive until 12am! Ryan had to wake up at 6 am to run in the race. My best friend and I were the ultimate cheerleaders and waited at the finish line for our boys to complete the race. I must say it was hard to watch all of the runners as I was supposed to run this race before I tore my ACL. I think I won't sign up for this one ever again. The year before I got terribly sick from out honeymoon and couldn't run in it either. I think from now on I'll sign up like a week before so I won't curse myself! So Ryan and Jake ran the first 6 miles in 48 minutes. Ryan finished in 1 hour and 51 mins. Jake finished in 1 hour and 43 mins. I think Ryan pushed it a little too much for the first 6 miles, but he did a great job. I miss running with him! Now we go on tons of walks together, but it isn't quite the same. I know before long I will be able to run along side my hubbi.
Denae and me! Go boys!
