Scenes from a Marathon or Run Philip Run!

Last Sunday was our city's annual 
marathon and half-marathon!

I scoped out part of the route early before the
runners arrived at the route located about block away from our house!
No parking or driving on Sheridan Blvd that morning!
It was quiet as the sun was rising,
but soon the street would be full of runners and the boulevard
and sidewalks full of spectators!

Nice sign but I think it is advertising a different race!  This one was the Lincoln Marathon.
You have sign up at o'dark-thirty on January 1st
to get one of the 12,500 spots in the race!
This year, my son Philip, did just that!
He's been training for the past few months and it paid off!

He successfully
ran his first half-marathon!
Woot Woot!!

Catherine and the littles came over after we
sent Philip on his way
 for blueberry muffins and . . . you guessed it - chocolate milk!

The runner (Philip in red) and his siblings, Connor, Maddy and Muffy!
Rumor has it that Philip and Connor are signing up
for the Lincoln Halfsy --another half-marathon in the fall!
Who knew we had runners in the family!
So proud!  Way to go Philip!!
