Xtreme13: Feather Weight Strong Man – Marine Corps Marathon

Sunday, October 27, 2013 arrived; the alarm clock went off at 4AM. We weren’t ready so we hit snooze until it was 4:15AM. The alarm clock went off again and this time IT WAS SHOW TIME!!! Today was the day my Babe was going to run his very first marathon. Now for those of you in the cheap seats (I am a former member) a marathon is a set distance; the exact distance of 26.2 miles. DAMN THAT’S A LOT. We (shut up so what no I wasn’t running too) have been building up to this moment for a long time. He registered back in March and had been training ever since. During his training he never ran more than 13 miles. However he would frequently run from our home to our sons Martial Arts Studio which is about 6.5 miles from the house. It became a game for family and friends to randomly spot him running around town. Hahahahaha I even got a couple of messages from my Facebook friends who had no idea he was training but would say they thought they saw him (insert a random place/street) running. Each time I would reply and say “Yup, that was him”. Lol
