Who wouldn't want to run in a dismal swamp?

(Leslie and Kev after the big race)
One of Chris's friends Kevin has been working very hard in order to reach a goal of his to run a half marathon. I really respect anyone who can make and keep this goal who is not already an avid runner. His first half marathon was last weekend and he ran in what is called the Dismal Swamp Stomp. I seriously wanted to pay the fees just so I could get the shirt! We wanted to make sure he felt supported and let him know how proud we are of him so the boys and I headed down to watch him race... well at least finish. The weather was phenomenal and the boys had so much fun exploring and watching all the runners come in. Sam also decided he would hold a little contest of his own and see just how many goldfish he could shove in his mouth at a time. After watching Kevin finish and hearing about Olivia and Nora's great triathlon experience I am really excited to make a goal of my own after little miss is born... of course we will have to see where in the world we are living and what kind of races they have, but I have really missed competing. Thanks for being an inspiration guys!
