My, what strong legs you have...

Aaron completed his 4th straight OKC Memorial Marathon today! He ran the half-marathon (13.1 miles) in 2 hours, 6 minutes. That's his best time yet and I'm SOOO proud of him. He actually even looked fine after the race like he could have went farther.

The picture below was when he passed the State Capitol. It was between miles 3 and 4.
Here's the three of us after the race. My shirt says "Future Runner Just Like Daddy". And my sweet husband was considerate enough that even after running 13 miles, he brought me a bottle of water and an orange juice before getting himself anything. He says he didn't want me to get sick. :)
Maybe you're saying, where's the picture of him crossing the finish line? Oh, let me tell you... he came in earlier than I anticipated and I got so excited that I fell off the bleachers I was watching from. Even though I popped back up really quickly, it wasn't enough time to get the camera ready. :)
Next year, we're both planning on running the half-marathon. I skipped out last year because I thought it might just interfere with trying to get pregnant. Let me tell you what interferes with not getting pregnant- no ovulation, crazy hormone levels, and hundreds of ovarian cysts. Turns out it wasn't running...
So, hopefully my Mom can bring little Gil to cheer us on. And hopefully this time my digestive system doesn't go into crisis mode on the way back to our car after the race... (long, gross story- trust me on this one, you don't want to eat mexican food the night before a big run...)


  1. I had NO idea you lived in OKC! I have several friends who did this run too!!! You look so cute! Way to go to the hubbs! My husband would have ended up in the ER!

  2. hahaha!!! Enough said. And good advice, not that I'll be running any marathons in my near future.
    Good for your hubby!!! Congrats to him!

  3. You're so funny!!! Yay for Aaron!! Cute t-shirt!!! :)

  4. mexican food before a half marathon...I can imagine the rest of the story! Cute t-shirt, by the way.

  5. Congrats to your hubby on the run. My aunt did the same run your hubby was in. I think its amazing that they are able to jog like that. I can't even go a half mile. I would fall over.
