"P" is for...Pocatello Marathon

This marathon has become a yearly tradition for the Anderson Family. We ran this a couple years ago and it was a blast for the whole family to get together and run. A great meeting site for a Family Reunion
This year Jerry the head of the Family and party planner turned 60 several days before the marathon so it was only natural that the family come from all over to celebrate, and what better way to celebrate than spend a day running after Grandpa!

This year Monte ran a 10k and took 1st for his age group. The kids, Anali, Aden and Avalon all ran the fun run and finished. Aden was a trooper as usual and just kept running. Avalon and I tried to keep up pace. Anali ran really fast crying the whole way.

Holy Smaokes. That was the greatest birthday gift idea in the whole world. You are so clever. Saling lessons! I am glad that you had such a fun tim at the race. GOod for Monte. I would be happy to finish. A 10K is pretty long. Good to see you guys.

Hey Jo,
About time you updaate. LOL
I know I have no room to talk.
Yeah, for Monte coming in first place for his age group, tell him congrats. So I'm a little confused, Anali was crying when running? Did she not want to run?
I was sad that we weren't able to get together when you came out this way. :( Maybe next time.
I'll probably be calling in a few weeks just to catch up.
