1 Peter 5:7 Cast all your anxiety on him, because he cares for you.

Today is Jeff’s Half Marathon. He has been training for the last 4 weeks and today is the day! We all got up and walked with him down to the race, gave him hugs and wished him luck, and before we knew it, he was off on his longest run ever! It took him just under 3 hours to complete the 13.1 miles which included climbing Tampa Mountain 3 times.

Pictures before the half-marathon:

During the event, there were several photographers throughout the race and we were able to download this picture of Jeff:

And of course, after the run:

While he was running the kids and I explored Brasov a bit. We checked out the narrowest street in Europe, Strada Sforii.

Here are the kids, with Lucia closest, David in the middle, and Anjali off in the distance

After the run we walked home so Jeff could freshen up and we both went up to the store for some food for dinner and a few last minute Easter things for the kids. By the time we were finished we decided that pizza was the best choice for dinner, probably because he was wiped from the race and for me I was not quite recovered from the jet lag and just had no motivation to cook and clean up the mess.

It was an early evening for all of us. Jeff and I tried watching a movie after putting the kids to bed, but I couldn’t make it. Today was a wonderful day and am so happy for Jeff and his accomplishments. I knew he would have no problems running this race and I am glad he chose to challenge himself.
