Brent's Big Day

Brent ran his first half-marathon this morning and did great! His final chip time was 1:46.15, his pace was 8:07/mile, and his rank was 279/2168. His goal was to finish in less than 2 hours so he did really well. Not to mention that it was 30 degrees out this morning! The kids and I were able to make it to see him cross the finish line.

Here we are, watching and cheering for each runner as they went by. Griffin was more into wandering around and collecting acorns - but Avery was really excited to cheer for the runners, especially if it was a girl! ("mom, mom, I see another girl coming!")

I told Brent that he had to wear bright red for the next race - I got my camera ready every time I saw someone coming in black shorts and a white shirt!! But here he comes, front and center!


Barbara is one of the fellows who works with Brent. She and her boyfriend Chris ran the race as well.

Good job honey! I'm proud of you!
