Santa Barbara weekend!


Andy and I went with our friends to Santa Barbara this past weekend to run the half marathon we've been training for! The weather was perfect and the race went right along the coast...it was so beautiful! We had a good time, but we are really sore and tired today! Andy did so good, he ran the 13.1 miles in 90 minutes. You would think he's been a runner all of his life but he acually just took it up about 6 months ago. We have been really busy these past few weeks moving and getting settled into our house. We really like having a bigger place! Andy celebrated his 25th birthday last Thursday and got the best gift ever when the director of the Physical Therapy department here in Cali called to tell him he had been accepted into their program! We are so excited, now we just need to make a decision if we should stay here or journey all the way to Michigan for the next 3 years!

You two are amazing! You're my inspiration. Can you teach me to like running again?

I didn't recognize either one of you in the pictures until I enlarged them each--looking good for sure!

5 1/2 weeks and counting . . .

Strong work guys. That's a great accomplishment. You'll need to come up and run the Yakima marathon in April.
