A little Bling around the neck

This weekend we embarked upon the Mercedes Marathon.

We have been training for a while, although recent sickness threw us way off course. I was not looking forward to it at all once the cold weather came upon us, but I knew we had to finish what we started. Really, it warmed up quickly and was a great run. So glad I did it, so glad Brendan's sister got us into this whole thing!

We did the relay in which the 26.2 miles is split between a team of 5.

Brendan an I have found running to be a great way for us to spend time together... not as parents... but as a couple of individuals bettering ourselves. While it is hard work, anything worth doing typically is!
Wouldn't you agree we look nice with a little bling around the neck?!

That is so awesome!!! I am very impressed. I used to run with Chris, but I never got to the point where I actually enjoyed it. Then I had 2 foot surgeries, so had to quit. I wish I could do it AND love it like y'all do!
