He's All Wet!

David, Will and I headed to Williamsburg this morning for the Anheuser-Busch Colonial Half Marathon. When we woke up at home this morning it was still snowing. By the time we got to Williamsburg the temperature was still pretty cold and instead of snow, there was a constant freezing rain.

Here's David before the race. He looks so dry. The poor guy then headed out into the weather and ran for 2 hours coming back drenched, but happy.

This is a strange course, one which does not encourage spectators. Will and I spent the entire race inside (thank goodness) watching the other runners, and eating. First the finishers of the 5K came in, and then the half-marathon finishers followed. Throughout the entire 2 hours Will would cheer "Go Daddy, go!" even though his daddy was nowhere to be seen.

David looked strong as he ran up the ramp into the arena. His watch showed a time of 2 hours 11 seconds, which is his PR for this distance. Not a bad run for a guy who manages to get only one or two runs in each week!

Here he is after the race - all wet! For the record, Will wouldn't get near David until he changed into dry clothes!
