On Saturday my sister Maria (older by 16 months) ran her first 50 miler. She and her husband trained together and then they were able to finish this race together. It is called the Antelope Island 50.... or something like that. It is in Utah and I really wish I could have been there to run some of it with her and to be at the finish line cheering her on. She posted a video on her blog of them finishing, yep... I totally teared like a baby. I am so proud of them. They finished in 11 hours. I have to tell you that her husband, Jason, has only run 1 marathon, a couple of half's and now a 50 miler. They are so awesome. There 13 year old (almost) son ran the last 7 or 8 miles with them and now he wants to run a half marathon this August. How fun is it that their family is all getting involved and interested in running.
WAY TO GO MARIA AND JASON!
