We did it! We finished the 2015 Baltimore Half Marathon, and we were not last, either
Here’s a 5-and-a-half minute video of video clips and pictures from yesterday:
My wife had never run this distance, while I have a full marathon and several half marathons under my belt. (I need to do a better job of training for them, though.) I’m very proud of my wife as she worked hard to train for this, and she finished strong. (I had a little bit of a hiccup less than a mile to go, but I punched through it.)
Many, many, many thanks to the people of Baltimore for letting us run through their streets, the Baltimore City Fire Department for looking out for our safety, the Baltimore City Police Department for keeping us safe, the hundreds of volunteers there to keep everything moving, the awesome people cheering us on, and everyone who made all this possible. You guys rock, and we could not have done this without you.
Finally, here are some pictures from the event:
