Rock N 'Roll......


This weekend my dad and Mark's dad (and others we know) ran in a 1/2 Marathon in St.Louis. It was so fun to go and watch them cross the finish line. ;)


Mark's mom arranged family and friends of my FIL to come watch him run this half. It was his first one and he was also recently given the "cancer free" diagnosis!  It was a surprise to him that anyone was even coming to watch....60 people in matching shirts came!! ;) He was so excited and appreciative.

It's not to often you get to watch both your g-pa's cross the finish line after running a half marathon....

They both did an amazing job!!!! The weather was perfect too.
We are so proud of you Poppie and Paw Paw!!!!

I shared my story on my blog about my run www.followthefish.blogspot.com - SO happy for Mark's dad..a "Cancer Free" diagnosis is an AWESOME early Christmas gift!!! :) So neat you all got to watch both the gpas...what a great memory!!!
