But for him? Well, he said it was easy, too, which totally blows my mind. "Running" and "easy" are polar opposites for me. This is the third time The Husband has run the SF Marathon and each time he gets better and better. Even though he's two years older now than the last time he ran it, he beat his personal best time by half an hour! And after the race, while other runners were collapsing to their knees as soon as they crossed the finished line, The Husband says, "That was actually a really fun run!" Like it was just a casual morning jog and not one of the world's toughest marathons. I can't tell you how proud I am of this guy. Not just for beating his personal best time but for his awesome attitude on race day and throughout training - waking up at 5am everyday for five months isn't easy, even for someone who thinks running is fun! He was committed to improving and worked hard to earn that medal, the smile on his face, and -most importantly- the free beer at the end of the race. And I couldn't be more proud of him.
Biker guy had amazingly good timing ... at getting in the way of my shot.
