LA Marathon

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

Sunday morning, not only did i wake up to the sound of pouring rain, but to people yelling and cheering. then i remembered, LA MARATHON!
I hopped out of bed as fast as i could put on my sweatshirt, grabbed my umbrella, and ran out the door. the marathon went right through our neighborhood. i joined the cheering crowd as i saw these people in wheel chairs racing. i was in shock. some of them without a leg, or no legs at all. others unable to use them. i'm not going to lie, i saw these people and got all choked up. i love when i see such motivated people doing something that others tell them they can't. 
i hurried and called jason to tell him to get out of bed.. he wouldn't want to miss this!

We were at mile 21. so as of then, this was the first place runner with cameramen in the back of a truck in front of him. not to mention a helicopter was a big deal.
here he comes..
followed by 2nd, 3rd, & 4th place - all women.
maybe i'll be a part of the marathon next year??
baby steps..

there was so much to do. but so worth it.

Then we went to Buca di Beppo with my family...

Some of the best sayings use the number two: "two of hearts, two hearts that beat as one", "two peas in a pod", "two birds of a feather", "by my own two hands", "two of a kind", and "Annie is twenty TWO". Now Annie can claim the big TWO TWO's. So happy birthday to my better half/the love of my life/my mabey baby/ the sweetest wife in the world!
