We're Famous!!

We were featured in the newspaper this weekend!  How exciting!  There was a pullout section in our local newspaper, the Kalamazoo Gazette, all about the Kalamazoo Marathon and it included an article about our family and how we have three generations of runners running the first Kalamazoo Marathon.  So, I am sure you're wondering...yes - we sign autographs! 

We are down to 5 days until Marathon Sunday!  My brother, Erik, and his wife arrive on Friday.  He was the first to register from the state of Georgia for the 50-state challenge:  50-state challenge article.   Then it is par-tay time!  We definitely have a busy week, with not only the marathon, but Christian has junior prom on Saturday night.  I'll be sure to post pictures!

I had a friend ask me today if I was tired of running.  I'm not tired of running, just tired of training.  It will be nice to go for a run because I want to, not because I have to. I know Christian agrees.  I am also kinda nervous, but of course, Christian isn't nervous...yet.  Do you think he knows what is happening on Sunday??   Of course he does, it's the Sunday before the Sunday he gets to finally sleep in! 

We invite you to come cheer us on in Kalamazoo. There is music throughout and lots of excitement.  We're going to have a great time!!  Finish line here we come!
