All About HCRP’s First Half-Marathon

This post is dedicated to HCRP: My Husband, Coach, Running Partner aka Rich.

Today was the Germantown Half-Marathon which is one of the biggest running events in Memphis and The Mid-South.
Back in October Rich and I did our first 5K together and he first introduced the idea of running a half-marathon.  The “goal” race was (and still is) September’s Air Force Half-Marathon in Dayton, Ohio.  It was my crazy behind who said – somewhere in December after we finished the St. Jude 5K“We should do The Germantown (I call it ‘The Germantown’ because we’re tight like that me and The GT) as a Test Half!”  And (because with certain things I have zero impulse control) registered us for it the instant registration was open.
But back to today . . .
Owing to my ‘knee issues’ (ongoing physical drama you can go back and catch up on) I had to pull out of today’s run which put me in the position of Support Person/Finish Line Cheerleader for HCRP as he – a runner since high school – completed his First Half-Marathon.
And I can’t think of a better way to have spent the morning.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, have a few thousand on me.

I am immeasurably proud of him for this accomplishment!
