Marathon Man

Gary ran a marathon today, yes a marathon. That is 26 miles 385 yards or 42.195 kilometers. His time was 3 hrs 48 min and a few secs. He did this with only a couple of months of training. Yes I am proud of him. If you double click on the pic with the statue in it you can see Gary coming in on the final stretch, he is wearing a blue shirt. It was a great sunny day, this in itself was a miracle. It was also nice that Garys mom and dad could be here from Canada to watch. Before he did this he was pretty sure he would not bother with another one but now that he has done it he thinks maybe he will try the Kelowna marathon with his brother. I told him it is kind of like having a baby, the first one is unkown and scary but once you've done it and live through the pain and get the reward you start thinking about the next time.
