The race results are not officially in, but me, mom, sister, and brother-in-law all finished. It was perfect race weather. Richmond offers great views on their course.
Mom is a wonderwoman! Around mile 10, she started passing people at a constant rate. She kept it up for about 8 miles. As she passed a number of younger, talented looking athletes, I thought to myself,
“That’s my mom!”
At the beginning of the marathon, she swore “This is my last one…” laying in bed at the hotel after the race, she looks at me and says, “ok, maybe one more”.
I hope I can keep up with her when i’m her age.
