marathon man

On November 14th, Jason ran his first marathon and we are so proud of him! He had been training for it for almost a year and his good friend Josh came out from the east coast to run it with him. He will modestly tell you otherwise, but he did great. There was a group of us there at almost every rest stop to cheer him on, and Dallin was so excited that he got to come.

It was absolutely freezing but I was trying to appreciate the view

Our favorite runner, number 707

Dallin enjoying a drink with his Dad after the race. The best part was at the end when Jason was nearing the Finish line and Dallin ran out and grabbed his hand and finished the race with him. I am trying to figure out how to get the video downloaded and I will post it- just adorable!
