After we dropped Ryan off at the Marathon, I found a front row parking spot. So we ended up staying the whole time. Since we already had our car packed up. The kids watched half of the Dinosaur Ice Age movie in the car. Then we decided to get out and go cheer on the runners. They had two heats going, the women started an hour before the men and there was a 5K. So we got to see a lot of runners finish and the first place finish. The kids loved playing on the bleachers.
Ryan's parents were down in St. George also. They came to the race to watch him finish. Cameron had fun with Grandpa and really liked playing with his glasses and ears.
The race started 15 minutes earlier than we thought and when Ryan's parents got there Ryan finished about 2 minutes later. We are lucky that Ron saw him so I could get a picture. Wahoo! Go RY!
There is my cheeser! Brooklynn found a friend that she was playing with for awhile. It was cute, everytime people clapped and cheered she would turn around and clap. Then get back to her ponies.
Because it started earlier and the 5K and women runners, I really didn't know where Ryan finished and what time. Of course he did great! He finished one minute longer than his goal time at 1 hour 22 minutes. And he was 2nd place in his age and 8th place overall. I am very proud of Ryan and his accomplishments.
Even though it was a very short trip we had a lot of fun. Thanks to my cousin Sara and her hubby Eric who let us stay with them.
