Brian successfully finished the marathon yesterday at 4:23. It was a tough go, especially with 90 degree heat plus that great Midwest humidity. I got to cheer him on as he trudged across the finish line. I am so proud of him! He's had great support from many friends along the way, whether they helped him with a training program, ran with him through the race, or donated money to the Alzheimer's campaign. This was really a team effort.
Meagan's knee did not cooperate with her at all. She's had knee pain for the last couple months. She did the best she could to get it better, even let a doctor put a cortisone shot in. (Anyone who knows Meagan knows that takes a lot because she hates needles.) She suffered through the pain until mile 10, but had to drop out. She's already planning her next marathon, though.
