Proud Wife

7 Apr

I am beaming with pride.  My man finished an Ironman 70.3 (the whole race was a total of 70.3 miles).  Some severe stomach cramps slowed him down a bit in the middle of the race but started to feel better and finished strong.  It took him about 7 and a half hours to complete.

I may have added a triathalon to my life list.  Probably just an olympic, though. 

I love my husband.  Thanks for praying!

    Great Pics! Thanks for sharing the outcome with us! Conrats Andrew!! I wish there were more wives out there who encouraged their husbands and showed how proud of them they are! You are setting a great example for us other wives to follow. 🙂

    I am a proud mama! Andrew did an amazing job—he pushed through the pain and finished strong. What a priviledge to be there to cheer him on!! There were life lessons to be learned by watching him train, persevere, and finish the race.
