Cindy Smokes the Half Marathon
Cindy is smokin! She's training hard and running great races. Two weeks ago it was a half marathon on the western branch of the Illinois Prairie Path. We both do so much training on the prairie path that it seemed like the perfect place to run a race. Cindy ran the race with a few friends, including Christine Elsen from our College Church small group. The ladies had a brisk, windy morning, and the fellas (Paul Elsen and I) had a busy morning of our own. We gathered our six kids, loaded them into the Elsen-mobile, and managed to see the moms four or five times along the course.
Cindy looked strong from the beginning.
Still looking strong at the end.
And still looking good after the race. Cindy ran a PR of 1:37:57 for the half and we're so proud of her!
