Matt's Marathon

Matt finished the marathon! I will say that he placed third in his age bracket and just leave it at that. The awesome thing is.... HE FINISHED! For those of you who, like me, don't know how long a marathon actually is, it is 26.2 miles. YIKES! Plus we are told that the Hogeye is one of the more difficult ones to run. We are really proud of him.

The really neat thing is that the girls were able to cross the finish line with him. After he crossed he was given a medal for finishing, and the girls are 100% convinced that he won. I may have more pictures to post later. He is still recovering and says he doubts that he ever does it again. After I had Jeb the nurse told me that labor has been compared to finishing a full marathon, so Matt has to do it at least twice more just to catch up with me!! I've done 3!

PROPS to Matt for sure! But I do agree...if that is true about labor and marathons I think he does need to run 2 more for sure!
