Rock N Roll Half Marathon Runner

Last weekend, Joanie came in for a dual purpose. One was to check on her little sister. Here she is sharing some darling videos of Ava and Lucy with Michelle (who is still on bedrest.)

Two, she was running a half marathon with her friend, Tiffany in Dallas.

During her run, Barry and I had a little time to cheer everyone on.

Then, I took him to Love Field to fly to Houston for the day. As the text of Joanie's time came in, I knew I was going to be cutting it close to get to our meeting place before she finished. She was flying.

I made it with about twelve minutes to spare. I had time to take a photo of this young women pushing her children. I don't think she pushed them through the race, but kudos to her for even running when she has these three at home. Dedicated or crazy? You decide.

 The finish was at Fair Park. An interesting area of Dallas to run through, I must say. 

Here is Joanie at the finish. They piled the food on her at the finish, but I wanted to get her photo as soon after she finished as possible. 

Here is a little side note about my daughter, the runner (with two small children). Her father used to have to bribe her to exercise with him. Now she is out everyday either running before everyone gets up or pushing the girls in the jogging stroller. Mucho Kudos to you, Joanie! We are proud of you.
