Akron Marathon Success

Brandon completed his 2nd Akron Marathon on Saturday. He did a fantastic job and somehow managed to be smiling at mile 10.

I mentioned this picture earlier on this blog. If you look at it quickly, you think it's Elle, but really it's Bryn.

The cousins (minus Brianne) waiting on the bench for Brandon to finish. He crossed the line with a time around 3:45. Way to go Brandon!

Good job Brandon!

Wow Brandon! You're like super fast or something.

And yeah, I totally thought that was Elle when I first glanced at it. Bryn's hair is looking very blonde.

I actually thought it was Bryn the entire time, so there.

I noticed that Brandon is running with a hat on. I would think that it would make it so that you get too hot. I would like to know why he runs with a hat on.

And you should size your pictures differently on the blog - they are too small on the page, but too big when you click on them.

Jodie said...'re so particular! I'll keep that in mind next time I post a picture. I don't know about getting too hot. It wasn't a 'hot' day.

Dearest Kent,

The purpose of the hat is two fold. If it is sunny it keeps the sun out of my eyes (the less squinting the better), and it absorbs forehead sweat. That way I don't have to spend time wiping my forehead all the time. I suppose a sweet sweat band would work as well. If you are willing to buy a hat (I obviously am not. Mine says, "I took it all off... for cancer" which really sums up my life philosophy) they make some nice lightweight ones that allow the heat to escape better.

I agree that those pictures need to be bigger.

I've always wondered why you opted for the small size.
