Chris's FIRST marathon!

He has done two half marathons, and an ultra marathon, but for the first time, Chris finally did an actual marathon! We got a hotel reservation that was basically at the finish line of the marathon, which was nice. The not nice part was that it rained the WHOLE TIME that we were there! Chris finished in 4 hours, 39 minutes, and it was raining for the entire time! However, he has a great attitude and said that he was having tons of fun!
 The day before the race, we went to eat at Union Station, which is near train tracks. Chris took Davis to go see the trains. He did not want to eat. ever. again.

Saying, "Check out the rain!"
As soon as he finished the race and we found him, Chris said, "Well, let's go back to the hotel." It was raining and cold, and he was soaked to the bone. He took a very long, hot shower, and we packed and loaded the car. We asked where we could find a good burger, but we couldn't get to Five Guys because of the race. So, we went to a little Italian restaurant by the hotel. It had a fish tank, which Davis thought was very cool!

I am very proud of Chris for completing the marathon, especially with such a good attitude despite the rain. Way to go!!
