March 21st has always been a day of celebration for us!
First go back to 1981, this is the day I married my best friend! And after all these years, 29 to be exact, I can still say we’re best friends!
Next, 1987, our 6th wedding anniversary! The best present ever, our third daughter was born! Happy Anniversary to us!
Now, here it is 2010, our 29th anniversary and Jenny’s 23rd birthday and the three of us are in LA and Jenny & Ken are running the LA Marathon (not the first marathon for either of them). Me, I sleep in, enjoy a nice latte (or two) and wait and wait and wait until they finish the race. For those of you that aren’t aware, the LA Marathon is huge. Approximately 25,000 runners! It starts at Dodger Stadium and ends at the Santa Monica Pier. I cannot fathom why in the world anyone would ever want to run 26 miles, but this is exactly what they wanted to do on our day of celebration!
Here are a few snapshots of my two marathon runners!
1) Their race bibs 2)Breakfast of champions 3) A very tired Ken at the finish line 4) Proud of their completion medals 5) Jenny looks great after just running 26 miles 6) The Santa Monica Pier 7) Tired feet walking back to the hotel
I’m so proud of my two runners! Congrats Jenny on your great time (just over 4 hours) and Ken on finishing (without much training), maybe next one you’ll beat her!
