I first want to start off by thanking all the people that helped support me during my training and races:
My wife and kids - for supporting me through all my training, long runs, time away from family, running on vacations, talking about running, races and living and breathing running and really the only one that will continue to hear about it now and into the future.
My running buddy T. - for being there for the long runs and at races. It's always nice to have someone at races that you know and keep you motivated. I can't wait to get back into the long runs again with you (but only up to 16 miles for the rest of this year!) Haha!
My friend P. - She has always been very supportive of my running and even has gotten into it herself.
My brother in law - for helping me get into running even though he cannot run himself anymore. He's now into biking which is perhaps my next pursuit. Du?
My parents - for helping babysit during the race, following races and coming to races.
Bloggers - of course, all the supportive running bloggers that are on here. It is amazing what a wonderful support system it is for people who don't even know me personally. I feel like I know some of you so well even though I have not met most of you!
Fellow marathoners - for helping push me to the limit.
Here's a couple pictures of the race shirt we got at the Bayshore Marathon. I'll post a full set of pictures once the professional pictures are posted. I also have many from my running buddy T. too:
|Great blue color|
|only 2 sponsors!|
We also got a great pair of running socks! Again, finally something that I can USE after a race! Sorry for the sock drawer pictures but you can see how nice these socks are and everyone will know I ran this marathon! Haha!
|Back of the sock! Sweet!|
|Race logo on the front|
|Love to brag about it!|
The other thing I did yesterday was finally put together a display for my running medals. Now I know that I don't have that many like some of you but I continue to build my collection. It's really great to have something to keep forever to remember about the race. What do you think?
|Displayed in my home office|
|A little closer!|
Do you display your medals somewhere?
Have a great day and.....Keep Running!!!!!
