Corinner the Marathon Runner

So on Saturday Corinne decided to be a super-human lady and ran a 10k down in Richmond with her good friend Jenn. I know 10k isn't quite a marathon, but hey, in my book, 10k is about 10k more than I've run since...oh, I don't know...ever! Although, I suppose I might run that far for a good movie & some microwave popcorn...but I can't be sure.

I brought Bob the Builder (a.k.a. "Carter") & the Princess (a.k.a. "Bay Tay") down to the finish line to try and capture the moment forever on video tape, but we missed her. Shucks. Well, at least we got a snapshot of her afterward.

Way to go Corinne! You're the woman!

Actually, I just have to say, it was really fun being back in Richmond for the morning. As much as we like the D.C. area, I think we both miss the small-town feel of Richmond and the friends we made there. Corinne was so happy I could swear I saw her crying in the car when we got close, although she'll probably deny that.

Oh my goodness Drew! I didn't run it! Jenn and I walk/jogged the entire thing. We had a blast though!!!

Aw, come on, give yourself more credit than that, Cori. What's the difference between jogging and running? Just a little bit of speed, that's all. You're still covering the same distance on your own two feet, regardless of your speed. I say tack up a big W-I-N for Corinne!

As I recall...the Cache Creek Trail Run was a half marathon, and Corinne finished that one with flying colors as well, so I wouldn't retract the "Marathon Runner" statement at all! Way to go Corinne...you motivate me to get up and get rid of this baby weight!

Congrats on your race! They're kinda fun when you do them with friends, huh? You'll have to come to Boise sometime so we can do a race together. I'm signed up for an MS Walk in April & Race for the Cure in May, and there's more to come later this year!

Go Corinne! You guys look great and I'm so glad you had a good time back in Richmond for a while. Personally, I wish you were ALWAYS in Richmond, but that's just me. ;)
