St. Jude's Marathon, Dec. 5, 2009

Can I get a "Go Jay Byrd, Go Jay Byrd!!"
Jay ran his first 1/2 marathon this past Saturday in Memphis. He finished in 2 hours, 9 minutes and a few seconds!! Very exciting!
Here we are with his parents after he ran...
lookin a little pasty right after the run!

typical family shot for us- we have 3 like this and in each one, someone isn't looking!

We had a great time cheering him on and watching him cross the finish line! He did great! It was FREEZING- 29 degrees at start time, but he quickly warmed up, it was just those of us not running who felt cold! While we were waiting for him to come in we got to see the winner of the full marathon- he broke a record, finishing 26.2 miles in 2 hours, 16 minutes (he came in before Jay but his time was longer than Jay's due to the delayed release of running corrals). Anyway, it was so exciting.
Way to go, babe! We are SO proud of you!!
