On Friday we left in the early evening for Chattanooga, TN. Kristie and I piled into that backseat of my subaru with blankets and pillows while the boys took on the task of driving and controlling the radio. John Mulaney’s newest stand up album kept us entertained until we got too hungry to laugh any more. We stopped at a pizza place somewhere along the way so Nate could load up on his pasta, and then we made our way to the hotel for sleep. The five hour drive seemed to go by pretty fast, but it felt like 3 in the morning when we got there. I swear, the time change is still jerking me around! I’m not sure why the one hour difference feels more like 3 or 4 this year but every night I’m all like, “Why are we still awake at 1am?!” when it’s 10pm. Once in the hotel, we contemplated the reason behind “pop corn” ceilings and went to sleep shortly after.

I am so happy that we were all able to be there for Nate on this day. I think it meant so much more to have his mom and sisters there, knowing that his dad was there in spirit as well. I’m so very proud of my marathoner!
