he did it!

yesterday morning mike ran in his first half marathon! the race was held in st charles, the finish line was near old town st charles along the river.
mike has been training for this half marathon since we ran the 5k back in april.
he ran the 13.1 miles in approx. 2 hours and 8 mins. his official time should be posted some time this week.
our friend erik also ran the half marathon. i am super proud of them both!
i think that mike enjoyed running the race, but now that he's also playing rugby (did you notice the giant bandaid over his eye??), he said that he wants to cut back on the long distance running so he can focus on lifting again.

who knows though, maybe he'll run another one at some point in the future. he's already mentioned that he might sign up for a 10k or two, so i guess he's not totally over the long distance thing :-)
