As previously mentioned, my daughter ran back to back marathons! Besides finishing them, her goal was to qualify for the 'prestigious membership' in the InSaNe AsYlUm of the Marathon Maniacs...
Erin is one dedicated runner and finished BOTH marathons with flying colors;
First up was the Lake Tahoe marathon which totally kicked their tails!! The course was quite difficult but it was offset some by the amazing views of Lake Tahoe!!

The following weekend was the Sacramento Cowtown Marathon...
A huge event for this area, boasting about 4,500 particiants!
Erin ran the full and even set a personal record!!
Chris and three additional friends (Dan, Kristi & Larry) ran the marathon relay as 'Team Erin' - Such awesome support!!!
Team Erin and Erin :-)
We love this picture!!! Chris ran back out and paced Erin the final miles.
Notice he is on his iPhone texting ME the updates while running~ He is SO dedicated!!!
So you are wondering... why wasn't Mommie Dearest at these amazing events??? I would have loved to be, but could not be two places at once ~
The Fireguy and I traveled to Washington to attend a wedding and celebrate our Son's 25th birthday. It was a quick trip but we had a really nice time sitting around in his new home and enjoying each other's company! and eating!!!
Tommy's GF Lindsey served my favorite; Ivar's clam chowder in a bread bowl!!!
Tommy showed us his awesome grill skills on his new BBQ !!!
Dinner fit for the birthday boy!!!!
But of course Momma baked her boy a birthday cake ~
The last couple of weeks have been quite interesting!! Once back home and settled I heard from my dermatologist that the second biopsy results came back clear!!! I am so grateful and feel very blessed!! I'm so glad that I got right on this and am thankful to all of my blogger buddies who sent well wishes and prayers ~
Enjoy the rest of the week - Weekend is right around the corner !!!! YEAH!!!!!
