John ran the half-marathon this past Sunday. He usually runs it every year and we always enjoy going to watch him and all our other friends who run. I don't know why I always get so choked up at watching people run these races, but it proves inspiring every year. We hit John at three different places to cheer him on and give him coconut water to rehydrate. He had taken 10 weeks off due to a stress fracture. He did great with a time of 1:35 especially since he had been injured. Next year, I told him we should shoot to be under 1:30.
Our amazing Bishop ran the full marathon. He began a campaign "Run for Vocations." He is such an outstanding leader. He celebrated mass the night before for all the runners and their families. He is pictured front left in front of John. After John finished, he went out to run three miles with the Bishop. Such a treat.
