This past weekend was the annual BassPro Fitness Festival finale--which included a 5K, Half-Marathon, Marathon, and a Marathon Relay.
Instead of running the half-marathon, as he has the past two years, Hubby put together a team this year and they ran the Marathon Relay. 5 runners who had to complete 2 5K's, 2 10K's, & a 12K. Hubby was the anchor leg and had to complete the longest leg--the 12K which is 7.5 miles. However, the other team members were able to meet up with him and they all crossed the finish line together.
Elyse & I helped to shuttle the runners from each location and also pick them up after their leg of the race was finished. It was a long morning, with lots of waiting around. Let me just tell you, entertaining an almost 2 year old for 4ish hours and getting in and out of a car is a job in and of itself!
It was a fun time and we finished up with some yummy BBQ for lunch after they finished in 4 hours & 26 minutes.
|It was FREEZING outside at 7 in the morning! Poor Elyse was a little overwhelmed with all the people!|
|The whole group, some ran the half-marathon by themselves, and then the marathon relay team of course!|

|Someone really wanted down and wanted NOTHING to do with pictures!|

|Where's Daddy? She kept saying, Daddy Race, Daddy Run, Daddy Fast...absolutely adorable!|
|The team as they finished together!|
I may not have run the race, but I was exhausted after handling Elyse for so long--so while Elyse napped yesterday, so did I! I figured I deserved it!
