Aunt K’s (first) 26.2!

Aunt K’s (first) 26.2!

Today Aunt K (my amazing step-sister) accomplished something HUGE.  She ran her first marathon!  We are all so proud of her.  Aunt K is an absolute inspiration to us all and I’m so proud of her.   Papa Mike (my step-dad) is also a pretty cool Dad!  I already knew it but loved seeing it today in how he supported Aunt K.

My favorite moment of the day was when Aunt K turned a corner and L and I spotted her!  L went running down the sidewalk to reach her.  Then he ran as fast as he could alongside her on the sidewalk.  It was such a sweet moment!Aunt K and her Nephew L

Here are some of my favorite shots of “Aunt K” from today!  Photo credits to Nana (my Mom) and my iPhone.  🙂 Marathon_K_01 Marathon_K_03 Marathon_K_04 Marathon_K_05 Marathon_K_08 Marathon_K_11 Marathon_K_14 Marathon_K_16 Marathon_K_18 Marathon_K_20 Marathon_K_21

I can’t believe I’m even possibly considering getting back into running (okay, jogging)!  However, it’s hard to not want to accomplish something this fantastic myself someday.  I’m not sure a marathon is for me…but 13.1 miles is officially now something I’ve added to my “bucket list”.  I just need to make the time to train (someday)!

Congratulations K!  You did fantastic!

    You are so sweet! Thank you so much for taking the time to document this day. I loved having Logan run beside me and having the Howell family with me on this special day. I will treasure these memories.
