and we are so proud of him! he finished in 1 hour, 8 minutes and 1 second. he kept a nice, easy pace the entire race as he wound through tree-covered streets, up and down hills and along the river. we spotted him just before the finish line, and i handed harper over to him so they could cross together. all she wanted to do since she saw him take his first steps across the start line was to run with daddy. michael, we are so proud of you, and are looking forward to standing at the finish line of your next race.

that evening, we celebrated kelly's birthday. michael has twin sisters, but jen was out of town. kelly left today for germany, so we celebrated with her before she left and will celebrate with jen later in the month. it was a momentous night, for harper that is. she actually ate chicken fingers (doesn't typically like any type of meat) and bit off some of the actual cupcake after polishing off the frosting first. usually it's frosting only, and the cake gets tossed aside.
happy birthday, auntie kelly and auntie jen!
