We are so proud of you Aaron!!
Our 17 year old son decided to run the Eugene marathon not to long ago and has been training the last few weeks. I was a bit concerned about the distance and his strong pain threshold, knowing he wouldn't give up even if he was in tough shape. Well he amazed me and did a fantastic job.Hubby Marv and I went to the 23 mile point to cheer Aaron on and I must admit it was hard for me to watch him as I knew this must be grueling. He was fortunate to have some wonderful friends of ours that are distance runners run along with him to pace him. All this to say he made it and we are so proud, what an incredible feat.
