Dad: Why did you let me do this?
True conversation between miles 19 and 20 of the IMT Des Moines marathon on October 16th.
We finished. Kelly finished in 3:55. Dad and I finished in 6:41. Neither of us is particularly overjoyed with our times, but for crash marathon training, they are amazing. Finishing is amazing.
I can't complain. I can walk without pain after just a week. Dad can too. We're all happy to be done with 3 and 4 hour training runs on the weekends. But we're happier we did it together.
Here are the highlights:
- Praying with Dad and Kelly before the race.
- Seeing Mom, Ben (Kelly's husband), and his family cheering us on at mile 8.
