Harrisburg Marathon Weekend

What a wonderful weekend! Kevin and I took a little road trip down to Harrisburg for him to run the marathon. He had trained all Summer for the Erie Marathon back in September, but unfortunately tore a calf muscle during a long run just a few weeks before. He worked so hard to rehab and thankfully felt strong enough to run. Since he started running a few years ago he made qualifying for Boston his goal, and he did it!! It was amazing to see and we are all sooo proud! I shared lots of snapshots of our trip on my Instagram, which I especially love for special moments like this one!

  1. Congratulations to your husband on such an accomplishment.

  2. I so admire people who run marathons!!!! Congratulations to your husband!!

    Your fox always make me giggle and I have not gotten to use felt yet. I am hoping to someday soon because it looks like so much fun!!!! I am now working on a quilt that I am donating to a local charity that a friend of ours has each year. He has a sort of make-a-wish where he helps families with either a family member who is ill or a family hardship. Last year he helped six families. This year he is hoping for more. My husband always donates carvings. It is quite a night that Frank puts on.

    Well anyway, loved the pictures!

  3. Very cute felt projects....I really like the leaf garland

    1. Thanks Sharon! I'm hoping to hang that in our house sometime this week! You can find the tutorial here -- it was such a great project that the kids and I did together!

  4. Congratulations to the hubby! I followed it all weekend on Instagram! I know he has got to be so proud. That is one HUGE accomplishment!

  5. Congrats to your husband! That is a great accomplishment! If you travel with him to Boston definitely check out GatherHere in Cambridge. It is the best modern fabric store around here and they have lots of other crafty items there too. And if you need suggestions for places to eat, stay, etc let me know.

  6. How exciting to have such a great finish and to qualify for the Boston Marathon!!! Kevin must be on a high still!

  7. Congrats to your hubby! That is quite the accomplishment and I know you are so proud of him!

  8. Congrats to him! I got offered the chance to do the London Marathon after doing the Glasgow half 3 times, but my doc told me no more running because of the joint problems I have, so now I have to cheer from the sidelines!

    PS, I'm just back from a very last minute week away to that really remote place we were talking about, I'm blaming it all on you ;o)
