"A (wo)man should hear a little music, read a little poetry, and see a fine picture every day of (her)his life in order that worldly cares may not obliterate the sense of beautiful God has implanted in the human soul."- Goethe

Half Marathon

Kirk recently completed his first half marathon, and we couldn't be prouder. We roused the baby bumpkins from her dreamy slumbers and dragged her along in her PJs to cheer Kirk on and watch him race:

You can see more about his race (in Kirk's very own words!) as well as additional photos here.

This is just a little peek into the supporter's side of a race. There's a lot of anticipation, but the wee one stuck it out and didn't even lose patience once through all that waiting. She was even well-behaved despite the early hours and learned such necessary race jargon such as "Go! Go! Go!" and "Push it! Push it!"

Those who know me well are doubtless aware of my aversion to mornings, especially the ridiculous pre-sun hours of the day. However, it's those very dreadful mornings that rejuvenate and energize me the most! I feel like I get so much done on days like that, and this was one such day.

Yes or no: mornings. Thoughts?


  1. Laura, I appreciate you and Pepper waiting over two hours for me to finish. Like Laura said, for more pictures and my firsthand account running the race, go to: http://accordingtokirk.blogspot.com/

  2. Haha- definitely a NO to mornings! And to running! But way to go to your hubby for doing it!
