My dad is pretty amazing!

Yesterday my dad ran his 1st marathon!  
26 miles in 5 hours 30 minutes and 12 seconds!
 
Way to go Dad!  I am so proud of you and inspired by your determination and drive.
Go Burns Go!

I am SUPER impressed!! I saw him at the barber shop the day before the race, and he had already decided that his first race would be his last. (I think that's the only time I have ever seen him nervously anticipating anything.) He did a GREAT JOB!!!! He braved the course and emerged victorious!

Go Dad Go is right! I am super impressed with him too! We watched his checkpoints online and then went and explored some more of the city. We later calculated that we walked 6.5 miles that day and I kept thinking "holy crap Dad is RUNNING 4x as much as this!" I was beat just from sightseeing 6.5 miles. Ha!

5 Hours that's an awesome time for a first time runner. I'd be crawling to be the finish line lol. Rock on!

I've always been super inspired by those who run marathon's. What an awesome feat! I'm so excited Cliff wants to start running. It has been a dream of mine just to do a half! Now I have some motivation:)
