Side-tracked by the Akron marathon

On a recent post I left you hanging about another project that we completed, well, I'm still not ready to share it. I was hoping  we would have it completely done this weekend but we got side-tracked on Saturday. So I will be finishing it up this week. 

Back to Saturday and why we got side-tracked, we went to the Akron, Ohio marathon to support our son-in-law, Chad, who was running his first full marathon! The weather was absolutely beautiful so it was a great day to just be out side, all day!

The Akron marathon is a pretty big deal, they do a wonderful job organizing it and there were more than 15,000 runners who took part this year.  

It is such an inspiration watching everyone who participated, whether they were running a 5k, 1/2, or full marathon, it is just neat to see the motivation these people have, of all ages. Makes me feel a bit lazy, but also makes me want to be a part of it all.  

Our son-in-law finished in a little over 5 hours, his only requirement was that he finish it, the time didn't matter.  

Here he is as he approaches the finish line......







We are incredibly proud of him!

Today, we went and picked up our outdoor furniture, and that is one reason why I'm not ready to share pictures of that project yet:) I want to put everything together before I share.
