He did it!

Doug and his buddies finished the half-marathon in 2 hours, 3 minutes. I can't even fathom running for that much time! Doug says he used to think marathon runners were crazy, but now he KNOWS they are.

He finished 185th in his age division and 1998th out of 4578. Sounds good to me!

Two other ladies and I with a total of 8 children got in two vehicles after breakfast to make it to the finish line in time.

We were three blocks away, when a couple of them passed us. I got my camera up as fast as I could, only to get this.

Doug's in the long-sleeve gray shirt on the right running down an very steep hill.

Caleb was so proud of his daddy. He wore Doug's medal all day and slept with it last night.

If you want Doug's play by play, you can go to

I think it will be posted soon.

I am so excited to be able to comment on your blog. It makes the happy to see and hear what is going on there. I will share some of your news with the Bible study group. We are a mixed group with a wide age span, so I am sure many of them know all about blogs. Praying,
