Yesterday my little brother ran his very first half marathon. Worst part, I have been sidelined and couldn’t run with him. Best part, my DAD got to run with him!! And they ACTUALLY ran together.
I was SO proud of them.
They wanted to run sub-2 hour times, and they both did amazing. Josh crossed at 1:56 and dad at 1:59. REALLY!? I was so impressed.
This was the I Run for the Party Half Marathon downtown – and really, don’t even get me started on the unorganized disaster that the IRFTP people are. One example – no water from mile 2.5 until mile 8. And it was a warm November morning. I could have strangled people when I heard this. I mean, that’s just dangerous and really should be illegal. I have to stop typing or I’ll go all day. Ok, just one more example – $63 race fee and the “medal” is a laminated card with the race sponsors on it that they called a “city pass.” Whaaaaat? LAME.
IRFTP = morons. I can’t wait for my running family to come back in April for the Country Music Marathon to experience a safe, organized, well planned and amazing Nashville half marathon! (I said this yesterday on the I Run for the Party facebook page…it has since been deleted.) Ok – really, I’m done….
Check these studs out.
So proud of my Wade boys! And love our active family.
