Last Sunday Chris ran a half marathon that he has done for the past three years. We met him at the finish line and he ran in with the kids, as he has done in past years. Just for kicks, the previous years’ pictures are below.

Also this, from that year, because it is unreal how different they sound in just 2 years.
The kids and I were waiting for Chris as he came around the last bend before the finish line. He rescued me from an endearing but insanity-inducing game of I spy with the kids.
Jayce: Mom, I spy with my little eye something starting with g and t….give up? Ginormous tree!!
Hannah: Mom, I spy with my little eye something starting with pretz…that’s right mom! Pretzel bag! Well done!
Chris carried Hannah for a little bit but eventually she had to run across the line with him.
Even carrying/running with the kids the last little bit Chris still ran his new personal best race time of just over 1:29. (Sorry, I don’t remember to the second.) We celebrated sufficiently afterwards with crepes for lunch and the noodle bar for dinner. But only because we like to support our local businesses…
Congratulations Chris on another job very well done! 🙂
