Marathon Men and Woman

Just when I start to brag about one grandchild, I realize I have to brag on them all--they are all so good! Following in the footsteps of her dad and brother a few weeks ago, Jessica entered her first half-marathon race on Sunday in Raleigh and we were able to go there and cheer her on. The weather was perfect which made for a beautiful day. We caught up with her just before the race started at 7:00 a.m. near the Wolfpack football stadium in Raleigh.

Then we drove all around the city to make our way back to the 7 mile (approx.) mark so we could cheer her on. That's when Gordon ("Pappaw to Jessica") decided to join in the race with her for a few yards.

We made our way around town again to find her at about the 11 mile marker, thanks to our trusty and knowledgeable guides, David and Jim.

Seeing her cross the finish line was a treat for us all!

But I doubt any of us was as thrilled as she was.
Congratulations, Jessica! Well done, indeed!
