Every year our town holds the Lincoln Marathon. We live on one of the busiest streets in Lincoln and the entire crowd of runners jets right by in front of our house. We always sit outside to watch and cheer them on. They are just awesome, not to mention inspiring!
This year our daughter Korby decided to play her snare drum. We are located at about mile 2 of the race. The runners absolutely loved that she was out there playing for them. We heard lots of hoots and hollering. I even think some of them ran a little faster. We were so proud of her.
I can honestly say, that NEVER once have Kiley & I looked at each other and said “We should walk the 1/2 marathon next year.” In fact, we usually go inside afterwards for a donut.
This year there was talk of walking in the 1/2 in 2012.
We will see what 2012 brings my friends, we will see.
