1/2 Marathon Man
At the concert:
The Seattle Rock n' Roll Marathon took place yesterday where a band was stationed at each mile-point through out the race, and Aaron really ROCKED it!!!! He ran 13.1 miles in 2 hours and 30 min. He actually injured his knee pretty bad, and had to walk for a bit, so he would have even got a better time if he was able to run the entire time!!!!! He said it was SO nice to hear the music playing in the distance because then he knew he was getting close to the next mile marker! This marathon made history in Seattle, as it was the largest one to ever take place here. There were over 15,000 half marathon-ers and over 5,000 full marathon-ers.
Aaron's parents, the kids, and I went down to cheer him on and it was a BEAUTIFUL day (which is asking a lot for Seattle). The kids had a blast watching all the people and seeing their dad doin his THING! The kids made homemade signs and were so proud of their dad! Check out the website for more details http://www.rnrseattle.com/ and to see when the rock n roll marathon is going to be at a city near you!!!! Maybe we will come run it with you (Arizonians, Californians and Texans).
Also there was a big concert held last night for all the runners and their families. Aaron and I went and Grandma baby-sat! It's been a long time since we had gone on a date. We got to see Keb' Mo' (Jazz) and Ryan Shaw in concert (which I have never really heard of) but it was so incredibly fun! We are so proud of our Dad/Aaron! You ROCKED the ROCK n' ROLL 1/2 marathon!!!!!
