marks marathon!

im so excited to share this post. my husband completed a full marathon in utah and we are so proud of him. he had a goal to run one before he turned 30 years of age, and he achieved that goal!
he has always been a determined, ambitious person. such an example for me. he makes goals for himself and achieves them. he would come home from work, hadn't slept in 24 hours, and would go and run and train his body for this event. i will get off my soap box and share some pictures.

waiting for daddy on the side of the road about 3/4's of the way through the run. we never saw him during the race. we couldn't time where he would be at a certain time so we only saw him at the finish line.



callie wasn't so stoked about waiting.


when i saw him coming down the road i jumped for joy! literally, up and down and screaming for him!
he had just ran 26 miles!
i was SO proud.

it took all i had to not burst out in tears of joy for him. after this next picture, he ran by and gave me a kiss and headed for the finish line. his brother ran the last leg with him.



at the end of the race, when we finally met up, we embraced. we both shed a few tears. and he couldn't stop saying, "i did it! i did it!" and i would answer back, "you did it! you did it!" such a neat moment for us.


he has plans to run a marathon every year, from here on out.



i believe in him!
