My white-haired honey finishing the half marathon on Saturday.
I am so proud of my husband. He has been a runner since he was around 35 years of age, has completed 11 marathons--including the Boston, and many half-marathons. This year was the fourth time he has run the Georgetown to Idaho Springs half-marathon--a beautiful run through the mountains from one old mining town to another. The weather was perfect, just cool enough to be comfortable for the 13.11 miles. He and a running buddy had left home at 5:00 a.m. yesterday morning to get there and be ready for an 8:00 a.m.start. I drove up later and arrived in time to see the first runner cross the finish in just over one hour. B and his running partner, 67 and 68 respectively, finished at 2 hours 17 minutes and 2 hours 31--at altitude.
After the race, the sponsors served fruit, bagels and yogurt in football field of the Idaho Springs Gold diggers, a perfect grassy area for meeting family and relaxing while the awards were given.
