This weekend was a big weekend for Mike, since last October he decided to start working out more and start taking better care of him self. Fast forward to the beginning of the year and he started to take on running. Quickly he began running 5 to 6 miles. By February he decided to sign up for a half marathon. This is something he's had on his bucket list for over 4 years. With a due date of May 21st, Mike ran over lunch overs and on weekends when ever possible.
I'm not sure how he does it, with a wife, two kids, a full time job, and a full time side business. His half marathon race at the Marion Arts Festival in Marion, IA was a picture perfect morning to run. He did such a wonderful job! We couldn't be more proud to see him tackle his goals and cross that finish line.
Later that evening we celebrated by going out on a date to dinner and a movie. It's rare, but such a special time when we hire a babysitter and get out just the two of us. It's been our goal to do more dates this year. So far, I'd say we are doing better than last year, we had Garth Weekend, my sister-in-law's birthday celebration, and a few little out and abouts at home. Looking forward to more.
The weather is feeling like summer and I have a boy finishing his first year of preschool this week!
