ING Half Marathon Recap

well, after 3 months of training we finally crossed the finish line. it was such a great success to be able to finish and do so with my wife and friend. we had a great day to race, it was cool and there were some rain drops, but that was perfect. we ran across the start line at about 7:10am and finished the race 2:16 later. it was fun to run with so many people everywhere. you always felt like you were passing people, but at the same time you were being passed. it was weird. the highlight of the race was having the winner of the marathon run by us at mile 11. he was on mile 24 and would have started just a few minutes before us. it was such a cool feeling to see that guy run so fast after going so far.

it is definitely something we will do again. we have registered for next year and will know what to expect from the whole experience. we had a greater purpose in running the race and that was to raise money for world vision and what they are doing to take care of the needy in the world. with your support we were able to raise close to $600. that was all part of the close to $17,000 raised by our church youth group. it was amazing.

we had some friends, kaylee and elise, run around atlanta on that morning and have a blast trying to capture the whole experience. i hope you enjoy watching it.

New York Trip

last weekend i got to go to NYC with my amazing wife and got to see what the city is all about. i have to say that i absolutely loved it. it was cold and rainy for all the days that we were there, but regardless it was really fun. we spent so much time in the subway system and i have to say that i truly love that. i wish we had something like it here in atlanta. one day i would love to live in a place like that.

enjoy the shots we got.

today was a great day. i got to the office and got some work done. the place looks great after the famine this weekend and it is way easier to come in there and feel like you can work in an organized and clean space. then i got to go to the new soccer complex up in sugar hill. that was so awesome. we played there a lot longer than i should have and had a blast with all my new friends. it felt great to score a goal too. it was a nice one. i still got it.

hang in there for a new video coming soon.

by the way, we finished our 13.1 mile race this weekend. it was a great time. such a blast to be able to say that i did it. hang in there for an update on that too.

exporting a video right now and i hope to post it soon.

The Longest Run to Date

well well well. i can't believe it, but today was the longest run that i have ever had. i ran almost 11 miles with my wife at my side. i was so proud of her. she did so good. 2 hours or running seemed so far off and something that was so impossible, but today we proved that we could do it.

it was not easy by any means, but we were able to complete the task and move through it. my feet definitely felt the distance and my calves were feeling pretty tight, but everything else did just fine. i thought that maybe my knees would be hurting, but it felt decent. i am so excited to be able to run through the finish line with my wife by my side. i know there is no way i could do this on my own. i love her dearly, so much.

thanks babe for being right there by my side and i hope that i have helped you accomplish something great too.
