Marathon Weekend

I have definitely run more than 26 miles in my life. But not in a row. Yesterday Rosa's sister Monica and her husband Matt did just that in the Marine Corps Marathon up in DC. We drove up there after church to catch them in the end of the race. They did it in under 5 hours, which as far as I'm concerned is a miracle.
Matt is a firefighter in the Cleveland area. They met up here with a bunch of fellow firefighters. This is their group outside the IAFF tent.

Back inside the tent, there were a million little bottles of Gatorade, bananas, cookies, bagels, and Goldfish crackers. The gatorade and bananas I understand, but cookies? I guess they're shooting for replenishing carbs. Matt and Monica told us that pretty much everything tastes good after the race.

It was so fun to see them! We don't live near any family, so we gotta take every chance we can get.

In front of the Iwo Jima monument. Congratulations, M&M! See you again at Christmas!
