Dan participated in the Rutgers Half Marathon on Sunday, which just happens to be where we both went to college. He ran 13.1 miles. In less than 2 hours. I know, I was impressed too!
He ran the hilly course so quickly that I actually missed him coming across the finish line! He ran through 3 campuses which he said was amazing and quite an experience and something he wants to do every year going forward. We were both getting very nostalgic being back at Rutgers, especially with Ben. It was a wonderful evening/morning.
This is how Ben prepared for the race…by running around Risky Business-style with no pants on! I absolutely love giving Ben a pair of sunglasses because he finds it hilarious.
Ben is wearing a Gap button down and H&M sneakers.
Here are a few other pictures from the evening before the race and the race morning. We had dinner at Old Man Rafferty’s and walked around campus. We got Ben all decked out in RU gear for the morning! He was exhausted since he woke up at 6:45 in the hotel because we had to drop Dan off at Busch campus. And luckily the rain held out until Dan was around mile 10! Could not have been a better weekend. *Please note Dan’s amazing Adidas New Jersey shirt he has been saving for the race*
Ben is wearing his Rutgers football jersey, Gap jeans, Old Navy onesie, Rutgers socks and H&M sneakers.
Thanks to Laura for sending me last night, causing me to laugh uncontrollably for many minutes.
***Linking up to Harper’s Happenings for a very late Steppin’ Out Saturday post!!***
This week I have an excuse to go a little crazy since we’re taking Ben to EUROPE and it’s finally here! I am so excited, and can’t wait to post updates on the fun European clothes we get him! I am particularly excited for the Eiffel Tower, eating as much cheese as possible, visiting the Anne Frank Museum, the tulips in Amsterdam, renting a boat on Queen’s Day, riding bikes around Amsterdam, and of course, seeing our good friends the Zbranaks!!!!
