Seattle Rock and Roll Marathon

It was a beautiful Summer Solstice day for a marathon! Russ ran and survived the full marathon and Lucia and I powered through the half marathon. We all did so good!! Lucia and I walked less than a mile during the whole race and gave the race photographers some very excellent action shots.

Super positive and awesome experience. I love this race! 2 years in a row!
