Marathon COMPLETE for ThePoeDudes!

In September, ThePoeDudes joined The Woodlands Junior Running Club. Since then, they have logged miles at multiple races or at weekly runs. It was fun to cheer them on as they made their laps or finished a race. The goal of the running club was to complete 25 miles by the end of February. Then, in March, they were to run the 2K at The Woodlands Marathon and complete their "marathon." 

Matt was all signed up to run with them...and then he got the flu! So, guess who was up to take his place!? Me!...Can we discuss my disdain for running? UGH! ... But, I put on my 2K T and pinned on my bib (that Nash lovingly decorated for me) and laced up my tennis shoes. 

Waiting in the corral with them was my favorite part. They were bonkers and excited! Then, it started and Nash was my running buddy. He needed to walk a few times, and I didn't complain! In no time, we were crossing the finish line. All 3 of us got a 2K medal and the boys proudly wore their Marathon medal. Super proud of my little runners...and, I think we'll do it all over again next year!

Haha, I just loved going through these pictures and that spark and smile on the kids face just totally made my day. I wish I would some day take part in a Marathon.
