Default Houston Marathon - "Circle of Life"

Life's come full circle for me. Last Sunday, I lined up to run my 32nd overall marathon. What made it even more special was that I had my twin boys on each side of me to enjoy the course. I ran my first race to celebrate their birth back in 1996 when they were just a week old. Fifteen years ago, a photographer captured a moment at mile #25 of the 2007 marathon when they jumped out on the course with me . Fastforward life to last Sunday and it was a proud moment watching them finish their first marathon. I didnt wear a stop watch and was only concerned with getting them through the 26.2 miles. After a chilly start, they held up well until around mile #20. At Memorial Park (mile #21), spectators were passing out free beer so that was another distraction I had to pull them away from, lol. I said..."I'm 57 and you're 26 so? Shouldn't you guys be dragging me through the course, lol??? They finished in just over 5hrs so ...All in all...It was obviously my most memorable one and I may just have them suckered into doing it again!

That is tremendous kamoman! I told my boys when they were teenagers that I would be able to outrun them at 10k or longer until i was 60. I almost made it - they both smoked me in a 10k when I was 58

People who run marathons amaze me, getting up and running 26+ plus miles is not something that has ever crossed my mind.

Love the shirts.

Very cool accomplishments and I too have enjoyed watching the boys grow up on the green screen......


But Dad!! Who is punishing those Longhorn boys by making them wear that awful maroon in public at such a memorable event?..!?!.. ... We might have to call CPS because that is abuse.. Seriously though....good stuff and thanks for sharing.
