The Marathoner’s Wife April 29, 2008

So my husband is pretty awesome. This past weekend we flew up to Louisville so Joel could run in a marathon with his Dad. Joel and his best friend Herald have been training since January for the race but in the last month or so had kind of lost momentum…it could be because I got pregnant and needed way more of his time…that could be it. 🙂

Nevertheless, having run 14 miles at the most, Joel, Herald and Joel’s Dad Chip ran the Kentucky Derby Marathon (all 26.2 miles of it) and all finished in under 5 hours! I am so proud of him! Below are his stats:
