Yesterday, the Irishman completed his very first marathon. It was a beautiful summery day, probably about 80 deg F during the afternoon, and the race route was lined with lots of supporters. The Irishman was injured for a critical phase of his training, but he still managed to run the race and finished it in one shape. The Irishman's friend Mark ran as well, and Mark's wife Cam, their friend Mike and I were loyal supporters with signs and noisemakers and some ridiculous orange fabric things along the way. The victorious runners are stiff and sore today, but there are already plans for signing up for next year's race. Good job boys, I'm so proud xxx.
