The North Face from the sideline *and a giveaway-closed*

He said : Ready?
She said : For everything.

It should be the other way round. Seeing that he was the one about to run 50km worth of stoney trails and unforgiving hills. But yes, I had to be ready to let him go. And I was. Because I've seen him train, hard. And I trust him to know when/if he needs to stop.

The partners brothers for the 100km duo. Each doing 50km. Fresh faces so early in the morning. Not knowing what lies ahead. I watched them being flagged off, then drove off to wait for them somewhere near the middle of the route.

See that? That's Kash! She did the 100Km duo too. Told you she's amazing. :) After Mr.Husband passed this area, I left and drove to the the finish line

He made it back in 6hrs 10mins, more or less, around there. I don't even care about his timing. He made it back. That's more important.

Bib - almost gone. His white running top turned pink too :)

Adding to my collection of medals. Yup, I'm the collector. He couldn't care less about the medals. More photos here if you're interested.

I have not been feeling good these past few days. Thanks to my tofu neck. Ever since the car accident last year, my neck has been giving me problems. One night of sleeping in a weird position *nothing kinky, i promise* and I'll be in pain. I'm thinking. . . should I bubble-wrap myself before sleeping? Y'know, just so the 'tofu' is protected? *grins*

Have you been to YourScrapbookStash lately? :) The sweet Erica invited me to Guest Design with them for this month and how could I say no? I love her sweet online store, fabulous selection and great prices too!!

And because I love you, I have a $10 YSS gift voucher for one lucky person. Just leave me a comment here. I'll pick a winner in a few days. As long as you're able to leave comment here, you're in the draw. How easy is that? :)


I'm gonna make myself a cup of coffee and then blog-hop! See you soon! :)

Wow I cannot believe he even collects the medals, that is awesome that he just runs like that because he enjoys it, I bet you are proud of him, and his brother, so glad they have each other to train and run with, thank you for sharing this wonderful memory. I have a bad neck too, the bubblewrap doesn't sound like such a bad idea....Melxx

I think your DH is absolutely fabulous. I am wishing you a speedy recovery and less pain! I love the pic of the plate w/I Love You. My daughter is a budding photographer and it so reminded me of some of her work. Thanks for sharing.

Catherine said...

WOW - you're hubby is one strong man...and you're a strong woman too for having the ability to trust and let him go, knowing he'd keep himself safe.

Lynette C said...

Great run for your hubby. I am terribel at running. So I agreed with you that finishing is all that matters (first or last).

June said...

Hope your neck is feeling better. Maybe you need a new pillow ?

hippy_chick said...

he made it, whoop

Emily Leiphart said...

Wow, that is quite a marathon! Congrats to your husband for such an achievement and to you for enduring all the training and supporting him through it!

I can relate to your neck pain since my neck and larynx was hurt in a car accident a few years back. Thanks to a lot of chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture and massage therapy, I'm now mostly pain-free. A good pillow does wonders, too!

Thanks again for stopping by my blog!

Christine said...

Wow, 100 clicks, what a huge achievement!
Ouchie, I hope your neck improves, you don't realise that you use your neck for absolutely everything until it's sore!
