This weekend I was up in Duluth to watch Grandma’s Marathon and the Garry Bjorkland Half Marathon. Our friends Nate and Adam were running the half-marathon, Dana was running his first full marathon, and Kevin his second! I was incredibly excited to cheer these guys on!
We got up there on Friday and took a stroll down to the water. We battled the wind and the cold air but still managed to steal a few beautiful views. Friday was chilly: high 40’s and drizzly.
Friday night we all tried getting some sleep after an awesome baked ziti dinner.
Saturday morning it was time to get our cheer on. The temps ranged from high 40’s to low 60’s throughout the course of the day.
We watched the half-marathoners come in at the finish….
Then we made our way to the marathoner’s 19 mile mark.
Kevi stopped for a quick little stretch…
Dana at mile 19. I was so happy to see them both at this point.
Kev at mile 24.5….
At the finish!!
Dana at the finish. Both guys looking great still!
Seeing my guys come across the finish made me all emotional again. I am so darn proud of them. What an amazing achievement!
Congrats to ALL of the runners this weekend. You rock my socks.

I feel like it always rains for that race! I did it twice and it was cold and rainy both times. Love that it’s on a Saturday though and the town is so cute! Congrats to the finishers!!

Yay!! Love this 🙂 Takes me back to how emotional I was when I ran the marathon. It’s an incredible feeling — whether you’re a runner or a supportive family member!!

Awesome job to all of your men! They look so good for crossing the finish line of a marathon – I, on the other hand, will look like death when I cross that line 😉
