The third Monday in April in Boston is always Marathon Monday aka Patriots Day. This year, 2009, Michael ran in the marathon. Here he is on the course with a friend/running partner from the Liver Foundation team. They both ran for the charity.
Michael finished in 4:09:31, a steady 9 and a half minute per mile pace. I was able to follow him quite easily with text message alerts so that I could time it exactly when he passed me and get this picture of him and his running partner on the course.
Here we are at the end of the race where we met up. He started to be sore a little while after this, but I am so proud of him for finishing!
I am still in the midst of my Chuppah Knitting marathon and sock and scarf knitting.
I hope you are chugging along, I know I am! Here is a sock picture with a heel to prove it...
Here are some good pictures I got from Monday.
