It's been awhile since Henry's had his voice heard here on my blog. So it's time. Henry, take over for the day and tell everyone about Mama's 15th marathon: the Minneapolis Marathon!
Thanks Dad. Go shave your back or something. I got this.
When Dad and I woke up yesterday, Mama was gone. We ate breakfast and played, and then Dad loaded me into the stroller on a cool, breezy, 50 degree morning:
ISN'T THIS SUPPOSED TO BE JUNE?!?!?
"Crossing the Mississippi with Henry on our way to cheer at the marathon. #NoFilter"
Mama and Laura in the distance! (I like Laura too - I give her hugs.)
Mama coming at me!
Running back to Dad to let Mama keep racing!
Mama and Laura (blue) running off, along with their new friend Kate (#9)!
We ran to the start of the Greenway Trail and hopped on that for just a few blocks. Then we turned off to Brackett Park - neither Dad or I had been there before, but it looked awesome.
Am I doing this right?
This slide looked kinda steep...
... turns out it was a little TOO steep. I bonked my head.
Dad took me on the swing as I was still crying to try to get me to calm down.
He knew I was just pouting for attention at this point. He's got me figured out.
I went back and had a good time on the other (more "Henry-friendly") slide.
I hit this at least a dozen times.
Why did Dad keep calling me "cousin Eddie?!?"
... oh... I see it now.
Wait, am I getting ANY closer to doing this right?
Teeter-Totter with Dad!!!
Don't worry Dad. I'm at the wheel. You sit back and relax.

Yay! Laura and Mama are still together!!!
Mama running up to say hi!
Dad and I kept up to the fast-racing team of Mama and Laura for about a mile (roughly mile 23-24).
Laura's Hubby Jared joined in on his bike for a bit too. With just over
700 marathon runners, it wasn't crowded. (The half marathon had nearly 2500 runners.)
Laura and Mama!
Running off towards the finish!! That's the mile 24 "flag" just a block in front of them.
I partied hard all morning... cut me some slack.
Mama post-race wearing her race shirt, race medal, and compression tights! CONGRATS MAMA!!
OK Dad, I'm done. This blog is yours again. I'll be over here with my blocks.
Thanks Henry. And CONGRATS Pharmie and Laura on a great marathon!! (Pharmie's 15th and Laura's 2nd - both with Pharmie!) Hope you 2 are feeling OK today!
