USMC Marathon Weekend

Stephen and I traveled to Quantico, VA this weekend for the Marine Corps Marathon and 10K. Stephen and 7 other Marines and ROTC students from U of M ran the Marathon, while myself and 2 other wives ran the 10K. The Marathon was in Washington DC, so Stephen ran past Arlington National Cemetery, the Capitol Building, the Washington Monument, and the Pentagon to name a few landmarks. Here are a few pictures from our trip:

On our way down to drop the kids off on Thursday, Savannah was content to hold: Pink Bear, her baby, a giggle-bug toy, a book, and her cup...could anything else fit on her lap? At one point she was even using her foot to help balance it all!

The drive across Tennessee and Virginia was beautiful! The leaves are changing color and it was such a scenic drive (after the rain stopped following us from Memphis!)

Stephen finished the race in 4:20 and felt really good after! My goal was to run the whole 10K (6.2 miles) and I did, finishing in 1:05. We had a great time, but Stephen has decided that this will be his first, last and only Marathon!
