It's a Marathon, Not a Sprint

First off, congrats to Dan for a great job at the Marine Corps Marathon yesterday! Sometimes it is still strange to me that I married someone who is a dedicated runner. The only marathons I participate in are of the reality TV watching variety. I could do that ALL DAY, SON! ALL DAY! I am really proud of Dan, and watching marathons is actually pretty fun. It's weird how watching other people run so hard that they want to vomit and pass out is exciting.
So there are pretty much a million better pictures of Dan running that he dad took on our computer at home,
but this is the only one I have on my phone that I could use here.
Second, sorry that I have been MIA! Life and work has just been busy the past week. It actually still is, so this is going to be a very short post, with a promise to do a regular post on Wednesday. I felt the need to do this for my one faithful reader, Aunt Lorna. Thanks Lorna!

This weekend involved: a visit from Dan's parents, a neighborhood Halloween parade (with all grandparents as spectators), Dan's marathon, an emergency trip to the vet in the middle of the night (Shelby is doing fine), and a whole lot of projectile spit-up from Ben this morning. Poor Dan. Nothing like running a marathon, not going to bed until 2am because of going to the vet, then getting up at 5:45am to start your workday.

The marathon of life never ends! (Or I guess, until you die :) ) So stay hydrated people! If only there were random "spectators" who stood around you during the day and shouted encouraging words. "Attagirl!" (as I get into my car to commute to work). "You got this!" (as I turn in some memos for review). "Finish strong!" (as I wash the last bottle). And then of course, a ton of congratulatory hugs and back pats before going to sleep. Maybe that is why the "You're doing a good job, mom" Johnson's commerical makes me cry (just a little tiny bit).

So to everyone out there today - You're doing a great job! Keep it up!!! Whooo Hoooo!!!!!
