St. Luke's Half Marathon Allentown, PA


It's that time of year again! Time for all of the runners in my life to train for the St Luke's Half Marathon in Allentown, PA. It's beginning to become an annual event as we posted about it last year, this year brought even more fun, challenges and triumphs. With the beautiful weather on tap and me with the day off, I decided to join the team as a supporter for this very special event. The one race that separates the runners from the wannabee's, the complainers from the accomplishers, with everything you have left on the course and no excuses are accepted.

I had much to cheer about. My wife Dawn was my main runner but Dan (Dodger) and his wife Liz who are neighbors and good friends were close runners up. Other friends joined us and family came to support the efforts and ultimately the victory. Here's a picture essay of today's events and great times!


Dawn gets some tips from Mike


Andie is pumped and approves of Mike's tape job


Some of the support team


Annalie thinks it's very early in the morning


In the zone before the race (not to mention it was 35 degrees F)


All the runners look a little nervous about the 13.1 mile task 


The gals are ready to go!


And they're off!


Dan at the six mile mark, little less than half way there!


Everyone is in to it and supporting the race


Here comes Liz and Dawn at the six mile mark, yoohoo!


You go girl.....


Mike was coach, supporter and helped the little supporters as we shuttled


I love this picture!


Here they come around the home stretch, 100 yards from the finish


Liz and Dawn look pretty good at the end of the race


The finish line......


THEY ALL DID IT!


These two trained hard and now they can celebrate!


All the winners, all with respectable times and all smiles!

CONGRATULATIONS to Dawn, Liz, Dan and all our friends who ran and finished! If you don't think 13.1 miles is a big deal, try it, then let me know what you think. I am proud of all of you and celebrate your success!

A hearty congrats to all. Kevin, you should be so proud of Dawn. I am extremely impressed with a 13 mile run. Personally, I couldn't do it. Way to go!
