Shedd's Marathon!

Wow...We had a crazy weekend! Things started off early Saturday morning...

We rent our apartment from Shedd & Kris Waskosky, who live above us in their home with their youngest son David. Their older daughter, Anne, who lives in the States, has been training for a marathon. She was visiting here several weeks ago, and Shedd ran with her. He ran 20 miles with her, and figured he might as well do the entire thing while he was in shape! So this past Saturday, he started at 6:00 am, and ran 26.2 miles in a huge loop through several small towns around Shell.

Kris had everything planned out perfectly! She had a cooler stocked with drinks and snacks, and she stopped every 2 miles to give Shedd whatever he needed. David stayed with us until about 7:45 when Kris came and picked us all up. She dropped Dwight off at mile 13, and he ran the last half with Shedd. That explains why all of my pictures are only from that point on. :-)

It was so much fun to be a part of this, and I'm INCREDIBLY impressed that Shedd did such an awesome job! They finished at the orphanage, so we had some of the big kids come out to cheer them on! I took a video of the finish, but I'll have to try to post it later.
