Don Runs!

by Amy, November 17, 2014
A couple of months ago Don decided to run in the Ventura half marathon which is 13.1 miles.  He's been training for it and really enjoying it.

The big weekend was here and it was time to run.   His race started at 7:15 am.  

Here's a look off of our balcony and you can see Don in his bright orange shirt walking towards the starting line.

Don expected to pass the hotel around 8:30 am so Quinn and I went out to cheer him on!  Here he comes.  It was interesting because the "boardwalk" was open to the general public.  And the race included a 5k, 10k, half marathon and full marathon so it was a busy place with the usual Sunday crowd and all the various racers.

The route made a U-Turn and finished back near the starting line.  Don's goal was to finish under 2 hours.

He started 2 minutes after the first group so his time was about 1:55.  Wahooooo!!!

Looking good!!!

Quinn and I are so proud of him accomplishing his goal!  Although based on post-race aches and pains that may be his last half marathon....but HE DID IT!
