John gives it the final push to the finish line. Hooray! Josiah finished before him (after fending off a running bully who was tearing off kids’ running numbers. Thankfully Josiah has lived here for a few years and it didn’t phase him. He told me that he just grabbed his number back from the kid and kept on running.)
The next day was the full and half marathon. A group of people ran for our NGO (Gateway Medical Alliance). One of them is the smiling young woman in the light blue.
Patrick completed his first half marathon with a good time. Unfortunately I didn’t get to see him because the girls of the family didn’t go (it’s a 4 hr. trip from where we were staying). Instead the girls weekend consisted of watching Jane Austin movies and eating fudge. So in the end everybody had fun!
