Hey all! First of all, thanks for letting us know our comments weren't working. We've figured it out, and now set our comments to pop-out, so it should be fixed. Please email us and let us know if you ever have trouble with it again!
So, this past weekend was the Cox Providence Rhode Races. Miss Bethany and I each invited a newbie runner to train and run the half-marathon with us at their pace. It was their first half-marathon, and they were a little nervous, but they both did great!!
Ryan ran with Cindy (Miss Bethany's friend from college), and finished strong with a time of 2:18:09, and Miss Bethany with Jenna (Miss Bethany's friend from aerobics, and she's lost a total of 106 lbs and is now a runner) finished close behind in a time of 2:19:13.
Here are some pics from the race:
Post-race. Nice job ladies!
The race finished really close to where Ryan went to school (Brown), so of course we had to stop by the Van Wickle Gates and take a smoochy pic!

Our friend from the GNBTC, Kathi, with a GREAT PR!
Two other friends from the GNBTC, Kenny (in blue, finishing his 66th marathon), and Cheryl (in bright yellow and gray, qualifying for Boston!)
And here is our buddy, Kevin, after becoming the first-ever (as far as we know) barefoot Providence Marathon finisher. Ouch, look at that golf-ball sized blood-blister popping out the side of his foot!
We will have a giveaway on Monday!!!!! Stay tuned. . . . here's another hint: it is sparkly, and thus Miss Bethany loves it!
