Jean Completes the Akron Half-Marathon

20130928 akronmarathonIt was an awesome day to run in Akron… at least for those people who think running is something fun to do.

Me, Brandon and Aly cheered from the streets as Jean ran in her first half-marathon at the Akron Marathon this morning.  She did awesome and we’re pretty damn proud of her dedication. 

Nate ran on a relay team of the full marathon on team “Just Cuz” with his cousins (& aunt). Katie, Becki, Rachel & Joy.

We had lots of other friends and family running in the relays, half and full marathon also. Congrats to Brian, Sam, Nicki & Angela for tackling the full!

It was awesome to cheer on Nate and Jean as they ran in through the Akron Aeros stadium with thousands watching.

Photo props to Matt Murphy for taking an awesome snapshot of Jean around mile 10. Not sure how she was so happy this far into the race.

I still have no idea how she can run for 2 hours and 45 minutes straight.

Go Mommy!
