365/238 A race and a milestone

A couple big events today…
Hubby ran the North Country Run for the 3rd consecutive year.  It’s a 1/2 marathon (13.1 miles) on a challenging course full of hills in the Manistee National Forest.  Hubby had trained all year to try to get ready for the hills but, in the end, he said his training wasn’t enough as he didn’t run any faster this year than he did last year.  He did get lots of good “swag” – a nice tech t-shirt, a cool coat (with his name on the front) and a bag.  That helped to ease some of the pain of not making enough improvement from last year.  Rest assured, he will carry a chip on his shoulder until next year’s run.
The other big event was JD’s official Michigan Driver’s License arriving in the mail.  Whether we’re ready or not, we can’t deny that he’s a legal driver.  Next up…finding him the elusive 1st car…
