David Runs in Miami

David Does 13.1 milesOn Sunday 27 January, our son David ran a Half-Marathon in Miami in less than 2 hours. We met him near the finish line at 8:30 am and joined him and Leslie for brunch in their apartment. David ran the whole Marine Corps Marathon in 1999 and has now completed five half-marathons. Five years ago Lilli ran with him in Miami and last year, Leslie ran with her husband. While still rigorously demanding, running 13.1 miles is kinder to the feet and ankles than going twice as far. Besides, he got to see the sun rise over South Beach!  We’re so proud of our younger generation’s good health and fitness habits. Coming soon:  Sean hikes in Big Bend in February, runs the Dallas half-marathon in March and bikes from Houston to Austin in April.
