Photo Hunters: Thirteen

PSHunt

Thirteen

This is a photo of our mom and dad approaching the finish line of our mom's first half-marathon. A half-marathon is 13.1 miles (21.1 km). She has since run 7 half-marathons and 2 full marathons (26.2 miles / 42.2 km). Our mom and dad will be running another half-marathon tomorrow!

Half-Marathon
Today is also our dad's birthday! Happy Birthday Dad! We hope you have a great day! Alles Gute zum Geburtstag! We love you! :)

Happy birthday Dad! Way to go both of you, for the marathons and half marathons. Mom thinks you two are amazing.
Mom saw previews of the new Indiana Jones movie. She wasn't excited before, but the preview was GREAT!

Wow! You mom and dad wuns so much?
I might consider wunning 13metres, if there's a bowl of nice foodies out there.

Lux said...

Happy Birthday to your dad!!!

My beans think it's good exercise to walk to the kitchen and back! ;-)

MISS PEACH >(^.^) said...

What a perfect "13" you have picked in a marathon!
conCATulations to your daddy on having a birthday today the same day as my daddy! THAT IS TOO COOL!
And we share an anniversary this week also! It will be 12 with my beans...how about yours?
When they go off to Maui on Monday...I figured out a way to go to...it will be fun!
I also asked Dr Tweety to add some venison patties to the menu of the Itty Bitty Cafe so you can have something that will not stress your tummy. Duck is on the menu already.
Gutes Wochenende noch!
Love Peachy in the t~shirt (again:)
