Daily Life, Day 8

Today Daddy ran a 50K with Aunt Andi.  It was in Bandera, TX were the temperature at the race's start was 10 degrees!  That is some cold weather for Texas.  We were worried about Daddy being warm enough, but he said he was fine.  In fact, he said there were runners there in only shorts.  What???  Are they crazy??? 
Daddy said this race was the hardest thing he had ever done.  In fact, at one point he wanted to quit.  It was too hard.  But after some food and some prayer he decided that God could give him the strength to finsh.  And he did!  He finished in 8 hours and 13 minutes.  Almost exactly 1 hour after Aunt Andi finished.  We are proud of both our endurace runners.  It makes my 5 mile "long run" this week seem like a joke.  But hey, at least I can walk after my run.  That is more than I can say for Daddy and Aunt Andi after their run.
