Becky and I may not train or race side by side since we have different speeds, but we’re definitely partners in this big old race called life.
One of the better pics I’ve ever taken…the Fox River Trail in wintertime…I’m very spoiled to get to run up and down the Fox River year round.
The family that runs together…often eats a lot together a short time later.
Do finish line pics get any better than this? (End of my first half marathon in September, 2010)
At the starting line for my first marathon: 2011 St. Louis Marathon…before the sun came up…before the nasty hills…before the 90-degree temps in April…
One of my favorite marathon posters. At the Illinois Marathon Expo, they had a whole bunch of them displayed.
I might have to hire out my boys as photographers for races…look at those paparazzi skills from inside the trunk.
More motivation from my boys.
The boys at the finish of the Fox Valley Kids Marathon.
We miss the headbands, Chuck. And we miss you. So much.
Post run photo with the boys after their first three miler.
Celebrating a new PR at the finish of the Rockford Half Marathon (and angling for a sponsorship from Noah’s Ark in the background!)
Starting line at Rockford Half Marathon
Becky crossing the finish line of her first half marathon with Chuck just a step behind so she could finish first.
The finish…thank goodness…and a huge sense of accomplishment at smashing my sub-4-hour goal with a 3:52:48.
Most rainbows indicate the end of the rain. This one at the starting line indicated that all the rain was just beginning at the 2011 Fox Valley Marathon…
More to come…as I take them…
