Mama is a Cheetah!
I ran the Run Like Hell half-marathon with Mary this last weekend. The weather was cool, but quite lovely and we both ran a very satisfying race. It was the farthest I've run since, well, since before even conceiving of conceiving Erin. And considering I trained not at all for this race, I was pleased with my final time of 2:05:16. That's a 9:33 pace, thank you very much. I oughta not train for races more often. And run more with Mary.
The smallest spectator gave lots of encouragement.
And even better was seeing unexpected supporters at the end.
This was a Halloween-oriented event. By far the most impressive "costume" was a 3-month-old baby dressed as a wookie complete with a Bob tricked out as the Millennium Falcon. Seriously, some parents have waaaaay too much time on their hands.
