We did it!

So it has taken us a few days to post after the marathon. We reached our goal and completed our first marathon. We are now heading to Boston 2013. I cannot say it was the most pleasurable day with the torrents of rain that kept us wet the entire day. Kayla was the smart one, she had us change her clothes twice over the time on the course and she was much more comfortable. I want to say a special thank you to Ray Phillips and Brian Hughes. Brian gave up his half-marathon time to run the first 17 miles of the course with us. I think that might be his longest run in quite sometime. Ray went start to finish with us and it was his pace that kept me moving right along and beating our goal of 6 hours. These two special guys made a huge difference in our run. Thank you!!!!!
So now Kayla and I are recovering from colds. She is back to school and I am back to the gym for more training.
Thank you to everyone who came out and cheered us on and made the day possible. The Credit Unions of MA and NH are a wonderful and supportive group of people.
Now on to Boston!!!

  1. It was such an honor to watch you and Kayla cross the finish line in Hampton. Highlight of my day was getting a big, wet, cold hug from Kayla, who was all smiles even through the shivers!

    All my best to you and Kayla!
