2 posts in 1 day - say what!?


I just had to do a quick post on the fact that my parents are not just regular parents. 
Not mine.

In more ways than one but right now I am talking about this past Sundays half marathon.
The conditions this weekend SUCKED to put it nicely. It would have been an awful run - BUT despite that...
Mom came in 1st out of 104 people in her age group (AND 2nd place was 5 minutes behind her!!!) & Dad came in 15th out of 175 people in his age group!
Wholly bananas right!

They have both run full marathons before. 
Mom in New York.
Dad in Boston.

I am so proud to have parents that are so active, fit & ripped! :) 
I don't think there are many people who have parents who both have six packs! :)
Love you both like crazy and GOOD work!!!

Wow good for them! It's awesome when people stay fit as they get older. My grandfather walks all the time and you can tell he's in much better condition than a lot of his younger brothers and sisters. He had a stroke and it didn't slow him down physically at all because he's in such good shape. So tell your parents to keep up the great work!

Thanks AJ!! A little stiff today but nothing too bad. Better than we thought we would be after all the slipping and sliding around the course. As Dad always says....it will build character..hahaha
