Exhausting weekend but oh so fun! On Friday night we went to dinner to celebrate Adam's 31st birthday. On Saturday morning we headed east on I-70 to visit the sweetest twin girls (Brook and Sam) and of course their parents (Christine and Justin) and grandmother too (Linda). It was so good to see the Bruegs, the girls are precious! Next, we headed to Kirkwood to spend the night with Uncle Ray and Aunt Lyle and watch the Cardinals and Albert Pujols put on an offensive show, beating the Rangers 16-7. Early on Sunday morning Uncle Ray dropped Aunt Mary and I off at the MetroLink station to head downtown. We finished the inaugural St. Louis Rock n Roll full marathon on a beautiful day on a beautiful course winding all over St. Louis. Finish time 6:08:05.

So proud of Aunt Mary! Her first full marathon seemed easy for her!! All of our training tapering paid off!
