marathon was a success Part 1


So this update was a little delayed but marathon day was a great success.

My brother and I spent the day before preparing for the run. We first went on our last run. A nice little run/walk to keep the legs limber. Then we went to the health and fitness expo to pick up our race packets. They feature a lot of products geared towards runners. We picked up some gear then decided to head home for a little pasta dinner.

I rested up a little bit then went to work on the race day shirts that you see in the picture above. I made 6 shirts with writing on the front and back. The front said Andrew Runs For and the back said ForMyFather.Org. I was up most of the night making the shirts and managed to get about 2.5 hours of sleep.

We got to the race start about 7:40 am and met up with my friends who were running the 8k. I also had several close friends there to help cheer us on. We briefly stretched and jogged over to the race start. I wished my brother goodluck and headed to the 3:20 gate time. I did a little more stretching among the other runners until finally the race began..............to be continued
