mission accomplished

After my wife Molly gave birth to our daughter Abby in July, she began to ponder how she might work at getting back in shape. She decided that a good way would be to train for the PF Chang's Rock 'N' Roll Half-Marathon. In a moment of temporary insanity, I agreed to do it with her. Though I am far too squatty to be described as a distance runner, I'm glad I did. We ran the race yesterday and finished just under our goal time of 2 hours 20 minutes.

Today I'm sore, stiff, and I just can't believe I ran for over 2 hours. It's nuts, really. If you see me limping around this week, that's why. But I'm happy we did it and I'm proud of my wife...she's got to be the hottest mom of a 6 month old on the planet. Way to go babe!

Also, congrats to EVBC home group shepherd Andy Ambrosia, who ran the 1/2 marathon in a time of 1hr. 51 min. -- 9 minutes under his goal. Awesome job!
