I Can't Help Myself

Yesterday we were in Portland cheering on my son and daughter at the Portland Marathon. I'm not sure how many parents get to see both of their kids run in their first marathon on the same day, but we are so proud to be counted among them! So, 26.2 miles later here they are standing past the finish line.
I'm so tired I think I'll take a nap! LOL

  11. I also get tired watching things like that. One of my sons is supposed to be in a marathon this month and we have watched him in a couple previous races (one was a half iron man). I can't help wondering why they do it.
