All in a (Year’s) Work

Today is Pat’s birthday … while he would say otherwise, I think the past year has been pretty remarkable for him.  This time last year, he decided to make some changes.  And over the course of his thirtieth year, he lost 30 pounds, started exercising and yesterday, the day before turning 31, ran his first half marathon:

I am so proud of him … not just for kicking a$$ in the half, but for making so many positive changes in his life.  He is a wonderful husband and father as well as my best friend. I love him so much and feel so fortunate to be married to him!  Happy Birthday Pat!!

P.S. A huge congrats to Liz too … she ran a most impressive personal best in the half yesterday too! (I’ve been battling a knee injury, so earned the medal, but only did the 7.3 miler!)
