Pharmie's running buddy Laura decided to run the "Red, White, and Boom" Half Marathon on July 4th as her long run for the week. Pharmie was easily talked into it as well, and they both signed up at the last minute. (Pharmie's training for the TC Marathon, and Laura's training for a different marathon on the same day.)
I Instagrammed this photo on Thursday morning:
"Loaded up to go watch Momma race!"
You can't really see the runners, but they're running across the bridge to finish on the far side.
4th of July boxers.
Richelle running past!
Here comes Laura!...
... and Pharmie was just a few feet behind Laura! Go Mama!
Henry didn't run out for a hug this time because he was too interested in his cow bell...
... but Mama was able to steal a hug and a kiss before finishing the race!
Running off to cross the Stone Arch Bridge and finish her 5th half marathon!
(She's done 15 marathons & about 10 half Ironmans, but this was only her 5th half marathon.)
Henry and I cheered for a bit longer, and then we loaded up and rode home. I snapped a photo crossing back over the Mississippi:
