Before Angie turned 30, we decided we wanted to run a half marathon so we started training together every day. I've actually always hated running but it was a great excuse to spend more one-on-one time with Angie and have time to talk with no other real distractions. The same month Ang hit the big 3-0, we ran our first half marathon together.
What we didn't know when we were running that half marathon was that Angie was actually about two weeks pregnant with Patrick. We went to Vegas the next weekend for Angie's work and when we got back, we found out we'd be having a baby the following July.
Since then, our level of exercise hasn't been quite as consistent. We did pretty well after Patrick was born but since having Maddy we haven't been nearly as on the ball. With each child we took the prescribed time off from any physical activity (OK, I know it's only prescribed to Angie but what kind of husband would I be if I didn't suffer along with her? Healthy, you say? Whatever.) and then gave ourselves some time to recover from lack of sleep. Then we were just out of the habit and hadn't quite worked it back into our schedule on a regular basis.

Here's a quick video of some of the race. Fun fact: all the video and pictures were taken with our phones and then I actually made the entire video (title, transitions, music and all) directly from my phone. It was the first time I've tried that but it was perfect for a quick video compilation like this.
