Ben's Marathon.

Tonight, Ben made this comment: "I guess it is a big deal to run a marathon. I mean, everyone thinks its a big deal."
It IS a a big deal!

Ben ran his marathon on Saturday. It took him 4 hours and 18 minutes to run 26.2 miles. He did it - he accomplished his goal, dream and made it reality. I am so proud of him.

Pre-marathon - Milo definitely thought he was going with him.

As Ben finishes. I have no idea who this guy is. He wouldn't move out of the picture.
It is hard to believe that Ben decided to run a marathon 7 months ago. Now that the marathon is done, everyone keeps asking Ben if he will run another marathon. On Saturday night, we went to bed at 8:00pm and didn't get up 'til 8:30am. Aaahhh! It felt so good to get so much sleep! Ben is extra pitiful post-marathon...he can't do anything because it hurts. So we've switched roles, I'm taking extra, extra care of him. But, I'm happy to do it. Ben did such a great job and accomplished a HUGE goal!
