26.2 Miles!

My mom and her friend Anne ran an entrie MARATHON today in San Diego....26.2 miles!!! I am SO proud of them!!! :) My mom finished in 6 hours 37 minutes and Anne finished in 7 hours 1 min. They are both AMAZING!!!!

My dad went down for support and to video tape them passing thru certain mile markers and the finish line. He saw them run thru mile marker 17 and couldn't really get through to any other markers, so he decided to just go to the finish line and wait for them. He went to 7-11 real quick to get them some gatorades and water for when they finished.  I guess there was this guy who tried to steal a few packs of cigarettes while he was in there. The man punched the lady at the register, then the lady ran out of the store and tried to call 911.  The man went after her and punched her again...so my dad ran after the man and took him out...haha...like totally tackled him to the ground and had him arrested. My dad has a few scratches on his knees but that's it. Thank goodness the man didn't have a gun or something. Kinda funny but scary!
