what do my two amazing sisters and 5251 random strangers have in common?


yesterday, my two amazing sisters and 5251 other runners
laced up their running shoes and ran the annual bmo marathon
in other words my two sisters and 5251 other people were crazy enough
 to run 42.2 kilometres!!
 

my whole family came out to cheer on these two amazing girls
 





and of course the other 5251 runners as well!
 




it takes a lot of time, determination, dedication and guts of steel to train for a marathon
i am so proud of these two

they are truly my inspiration

congrats on being crazy enough to run 42.2 freaking kilometres!
and looking damn good doing it too!

Okay, I'm inspired to start running again, though I think only a half marathon will be in my near future. I love all the signs!! There's nothing like that extra boost of energy you get from people supporting you when you're running and really tired.

You have a beautiful family!
The signs you made look great. I made one for my sister and it looked like a disaster. =P
