Sunday I completed my 3rd Chicago Marathon and set a new PR (3:26:01)! It was an incredible day! Especially motivating was seeing my family at mile 15 and giving sweaty teary-eyed hugs to everyone. 

I doubt I'll ever forget seeing my wife and son at mile 15 along with my in-laws and their son cheering me on. I especially will not forget having my son run up to me after the race and giving me a huge hug. Simply awesome!!!

 

I cannot thank my wife enough for being so supportive of me during the past few months with all of the training even on weekends. The training can get pretty monotonous not to mention both physically and mentally exhausting. It's great to have family support at home to keep me going.
