2:20:08 (2 hours, 20 minutes and 8 seconds)

That's how long it took me (and my dear friend Sara) to complete our second half marathon together.
Our finishing time was only a few seconds slower than four years ago, so we are thrilled and felt blessed to have a perfect day for running -- no rain, not too much sun and not too warm or cold. In other words: just right.

We were lucky to have family cheering us along the way and at the finish, so here's a big thanks to Don, Gavin, Jim, Quinn, E.J., Heather, Rick, Anna, Caroline, Mom, Dad and Charlie!

And I also want to thank those of you who were kind of enough the last couple months to ask how training was going and offer your encouragement to me in this journey. I was overwhelmed at the finish and really struck by what it probably took for all of the runners to get to that finish line. It was an amazing experience and worth all of the pain and hard work!
