Hump Day Hunt - Week Fifty-Two

Wow! It's hump day hunt #52! One whole year of pherretting!

In honor of this fact, our word for this week is:
Celebrate

Hubby and I after my first Half-Marathon

Here, my husband and I celebrate the successful completion of my first half-marathon (his second) in October 2004 at the Ottawa Fall Colours Races. That's 13.1 mile or 21.1 km. At the time, it was the farthest I had ever run (my long training runs went up to 11 miles). Since then I've run two more half-marathons, one 20km race and one full marathon (26.2 miles or 41.1 km)! We plan to run another full and another half in the spring (München Frühjahrslauf for the half and the Vienna Marathon for the full.)

That's a lovely picture. How nice that you and your husband share the same passion. It must feel absolutely wonderful to be healthy and fit. Keep it up!
