Well, Dan has completed his fourth marathon (and possibly last...or last for a long time). And since my family is fitness savvy (or fitness crazy, depending on your point of view), my mom and brother also joined him for a fun Sunday run for 26.2 miles.
The course starts at Grafton High School and runs all along Lake Drive down to the Art Museum area of the Milwaukee lakefront.
Being the awesome supportive wife I am, I drove the runners up to the start line. James & I cheered at the sound of the gunshot. Then what better way to support your runners than by eating a really big breakfast? :) Eggs Benedict from Trocaderos, to be precise.
With a full stomach, James, my dad and I headed to the finish line to cheer. Joel came flying in under 4 hours. My mom (who's competing in the Madison Ironman next September!) was just over 4:30 and Dan was under 5 hours with a strained hamstring. The worst part? Driving the runners back to our house for showers---it smelled like a sweaty football team in the car!
