Run Drew Run!

We are back from our marathon weekend away. Well half marathon that is. I'm not sure in all honesty whether Drew really enjoyed having us there with him but we are proud to say that he completed the half marathon in Ottawa yesterday.

He and Glenn ran 1 hour 49 minutes and 33 seconds. He was 1959th out of all 9207 participants. 1481st out of 3876 men; 284th out of 691 men (aged 35-39)

It's been a long time since I've travelled with an infant and this was a big learning curve. It took us considerably longer then we had anticipated - primarily because Mitchell does not seem to like his car seat. I should have thought about the fact that he slept ALL morning (5 hours actually) and tried to keep him awake. We were just too busy trying to get to see Drew and all the excitement following. We had planned to stay late at the hotel and swim some more but the pool was closed for maintenance. We ended up not having to pay a late fee and headed out. Of course he woke up shortly thereafter and while we wanted the kids to see the Parliament buildings before we left we settled in a parking lot to feed while the kids wen ton a short tour. They got snack foods. 45 minutes later we drove by the buildings with Mitchell starting to fuss in the back. About 5 stops and 7.5 hours later we made it home. Pheww!
