Grandma's Recap

Sunday, June 21, 2009

Well, my husband survived to see his first Father's Day! He and Kierstan totally rocked Grandma's this year, especially considering it was more like a 13.1 mile swim instead of run. To say that the humidity and temps were high is an understatement, is was down right sweltering at the beginning of the race {6:30}.

I was a little worse for wear considering I didn't get to sleep until about 12:00 am and Isaac again woke me at 3:00, nursing until 3:30 and we were to get up at 4:00 to leave no later than 4:30. Yeah. Three hours of sleep hurts, especially since I only got around 4 the night before!


Here are some pics from the event:


At a rest stop, Isaac didn't make the full two hour drive up. {Jbetween you and I, Tony will not be teaching our son how to drive! :)}

We were one of the last to pick up the race packet!

People did not tire of making the joke that Isaac was running!

Tony and Kier all smiles at 5:40 am

The little man ready to cheer Daddy on!

Neither Tony or I were shy when we finally saw each other around mile 11!

The whole front of his shirt was drenched, as I expected {he pours a glass of water over his head at every stop!}, and he changed direction in mid stride to plant a big wet kiss on me and Isaac.

Only a minute behind him was Kier!

I plugged down the bridge to get in position to see them right before the finish line!


Still smiling after 13.1 miles!
Tony eating ice cream for breakfast {okay, okay, not really, he ate a good breakfast pre-race, but still ice cream at 9:30 am!}
I'm very happy to say that Tony didn't beat our time last year, but still managed a 2:01:06 . . . only 40 seconds slower. Kier was right behind him at the 2:04 minute mark!

I ran 10 yesterday and SO wished I would have started earlier in the morning instead of 9:45. It was hot! I mean, I love the heat but it makes it so much more difficult to run for that long .Great job, tony!

Oh man! After this baby, and this heat... I wonder when I will run again!

Kier and Nic said...

I totally slowed Tony down! I tried to send him off at mile 9ish, but he was too nice to leave me. :)

Had a lot of fun, besides the humidity! Excited to run it with you next year!

What a great way to spend Father's Day! Minus the lack of sleep and humidity :)

Congrats to your hubby! It was a super hot day (and that ice cream was super yummy)! I totally think I saw you and Isaac walk by, down by the William A Irvine. I am now kicking myself I didn't awkwardly introduce myself:).

Your baby might just be the cutest I have ever seen. I want to snack on his fatty baby cheeks! Too sweet.
