Long overdue

My husband is the sweetest. He really supports my running (even though he thinks anyone who runs for fun is crazy) and helps motivate me. I mean seriously... he goes to all of my races and waits for me to finish. If that's not love... I'm not sure what is ;-)

Anyways, before I ran my first 1/2 marathon in September- he was apparently going to every athletic store in Utah County to try and find a "13.1" car decal so he could give it to me at the end of the race as a gift. He spilled the beans the night before the race because out of all the stores he went to- no one had any in stock and he was really bummed. How sweet is he for at least trying? I had NO clue that he was driving all around the state just to find a silly decal. In the end, Runner's Corner in Orem, UT put him on their call list for when they got the decals in.

A few weeks ago, they called him and told him that the decals were in and he could come get it any time. I never even asked for the decal but I think it's so cute that he really wanted me to have one :-) Yesterday afternoon we finally put it on my window. One of my co-workers asked me about it today and was like "What's the 13.1 all about?" I had to explain it to him and he looked at me like I was crazy. Well, maybe I am :-) But, that's another topic for another day. Anyways, here it is! My decal from the hubster.


PS: 11 days until the Halloween Half Marathon and 18 days until the Snow Canyon 1/2 marathon!!!

You can certainly run a lot further than I can. As they say in New Zealand - "Good on ya, Mate!"
