Shout Out

I want to give a shout out to my awesome husband who finished his marathon today. He has worked hard for about 4 months to prepare for the White Rock Marathon. He finished in about 4 hours 25 minutes. The time might need to be adjusted a little bit--if it is I will let you know.

I arrived at the finish line about 30 minutes before he ran across. I stood in the bleachers scanning every runner's face searching for my precious husband. I finally saw him and shouted, "JON PARKER! JON PARKER! YOU DID IT!" and my eyes filled with tears--so did his. I bounced off the bleachers so I could go find him after he got his medal and finisher's shirt. I am so proud of him. He did a great job! Go husband!

***Jon's official time was 4:19*** Pretty good for a first time marathoner!!!!

Jon did GREAT! Once again he surprised me. We know Jon has the right stuff to do anything he chooses to do, and he does it so well. We are so proud of him! I thought Jon would be super tired because this was his first marathon and running 26 miles is hard to do at any pace. His race time was excellent. He didn't seem to be that "tuckered out". Tell Jon again that Tom and I are so proud of him. Before you know it, he might be doing the Boston Marathon someday. (Providing he has the time to train). With our love,
