A Big Thank You

I realized that I was remiss in my race report, and didn't include a HUGE thank you to my parents for watching Sam all day yesterday while we raced. They took over monitor duty at 6am when we left the house, and watched Sam from the time she woke up at 6:40am, all through the race, and into the evening, walking around with her in the restaurant when she didn't want to sit in her highchair for dinner. It was a big job and we couldn't have gotten through our races without their help. Thank you thank you Nanie and Pip!!!!

They didn't pull into Lake Waccamaw until right as Ryan was finishing - they weren't expecting him to run quite so fast! - so there are no finishing photos of the winner from their camera unfortunately, but here are a few shots from their time at the park:

"Daddo, why are you so sweaty?!"

The final stretch

Happy finisher
"Mom, let's go! Why won't you get up to walk with me?! What, you ran 31 miles? Who cares?? There are places to go!!!"
We've decided to take the day off from running today - not only is it 46 degrees and rainy, but we're both still waddling around, so it seems like the thing to do. Hopefully we'll feel a bit more human by tomorrow!
