Matt has been training for a Duathlon at the end of March since January. A duathalon is Run/Bike/Run type of race. He quickly progressed and was able to run for 3 or more miles!
A local church was hosting a Hope for Haiti 5k this past Saturday, and Matt signed up!
He joined 500+ runners to raise money for Haiti!
He also ran with our SS teachers Brandon and Lori!
Matt and Brandon
Get Ready, Set, GO!!
I was so excited and Happy for him. I saw him coming around a corner and even from a distance I knew that it was him.
I immediately started crying....HARD....so hard that I was sure people were starting to stare,
But, I was so excited and so proud of him, that he finished and that he worked so hard!
Needless to say, he thought I was Crazy!!
He finished 40th out of 500!
Lori (in the white) Finishing!!
Anyway, I wanted to dedicate a post to him, and let him know how proud I was of him!!
He will be Running 3 miles/Biking 6 miles/Running 1 mile
