Marathon recap

The Rock 'n Roll Marathon in San Diego was all I hoped it would be, and more. The weather was perfect, and Brenna and I were feeling great (even though we had to wake up at 4 am for the 6:15 am race start).We'd only run a few miles when we met up with Superman. He was pacing some of the runners--just helping them along, you know.
"Juggling Guy" was also running the marathon. He actually beat us, juggling the whole way. I'm not proud of that.
We had our own personal cheerleaders. They first met us at mile 5 with signs, noisemakers, pompoms and matching shirts and visors. I think they were having as much fun as we were!

They were always in the right place at the right time with encouragement, Tylenol, snacks, and hugs.
And after a long 26.2 miles, they were cheering as we crossed the finish line.
I love these guys!Running my first marathon with my daughter, with the rest of my family there to support us--yeah, one of the best days of my life :)
