Running has been a part of Jason's life for as long as I've known him, but he has mostly raced 5k distance or shorter. He decided this spring since he had "so much time" to finally train for a marathon. Traveling on the road for 2 1/2 months made running a little complicated, but I think he ran in practically every state we passed through. The training was not without setbacks; getting mono for a month, throwing his back out, tight hamstrings etc. . . . But I so so proud of Jason for pushing through and accomplishing his goal.
The race was in Vancouver, Washington, just across the river from Portland.

It was a great way to celebrate Jason for the inspiring, dedicated, determined person that he is. The kids were so proud of their daddy and I am too. Happy Father's Day Jason!!!
