This past weekend we went to Annecy, France for Kevin's first half marathon. He ran it with four of our friends, and they all killed it! I was so incredibly proud of everyone especially Kev. Just picturing him running to the finish line is getting me all teary eyed (must be the pregnancy hormones -- I am due in 2 weeks after all). Seriously though, it was such an extraordinary achievement not only because, duh, it's a 21 kilometer race, but also because it so beautifully illustrates his determination and strength in his recovery. To think that 5 months ago he was retraining his brain how to stand, and now he's running half marathons. Pretty amazing if you ask me. He finished in 1 hour 52min and I couldn't be prouder.
Where We Stayed
