This morning as I was sitting at my desk, working, and pretty much doing what I do every morning, I received a text from Derek that said:

"Look what God and I did today! We did it!!! 13.1! We ran the Arboretum half marathon!!!"


Yup, while I was working this morning, my husband decided to run 13.1 miles at the arboretum. And he did it in under 2 hours. 

You may remember 3 years ago, I trained my butt off to run the Flying Pig Half Marathon, which coincidentally happened to be this past Sunday. I think when I ran it my time was a little over 2 and a half hours. And it was one of the hardest things I've ever done. I trained for 10 weeks and didn't miss a training run because I knew if I did I wouldn't make it 13.1. 

Derek just wakes up one day and decides to go to the Arboretum and run 13.1 miles, and do it way faster than I did even thought I trained for it. Jerk. 

Just kidding. I'm so proud of him. He's been taking his exercising seriously recently so I'm not surprised that he was able to do it. Just felt like I needed to brag on him, because, seriously, that is awesome!

Way to go, D! I knew you had it in you :)
