San Diego Half Marathon

Today, Paul and I ran the San Diego Rock and Roll Hall Marathon!  We had a really fun time, and felt great. What made this race special for us is that Ronan trained with us. He went on every single training run, high fiving us the whole time. Unfortunately, no jogging strollers were allowed, so Ronan spent the day in Santa Monica. 

It was a great running day - not sunny, and fairly cool. There were about 20 thousand runners!

We ran with some interesting people...

And some Elvises...  Note that their jogging stroller carried a radio playing Elvis and Bud Light. 

We even ran with Princess Leia!

But on a more inspirational note, several members of the military ran it too. One in particular, ran with his prosthetic legs. Amazing.  Unfortunately, I wasn't able to get his picture. 

We finished right around 2.5 hours. Not bad!  

One final inspirational item - this guy finished the marathon faster than we finished the half marathon... In a wheelchair.

  1. Congrats to y'all! I always get teary when I go to watch a marathon. I especially get teary when I see anyone with special needs running- whatever those needs may be. So special that your little miracle helped you train!!
