Rex Healthcare Half Marathon

We spend a great weekend in Raleigh visiting Maggi and watching her run Sunday's half marathon with 2471 of her best friends. We arrived to a wonderful Dusti made dinner Friday night and had lunch and a walk in Pullen Park on Saturday with Ron and Chris.

It was a very early morning on Sunday seeing that the motel forgot to set the wakeup call computer's time back for day light savings and we got a call at 4:30 am. We were both out of the shower before I looked at my watch. The race started at 7 am.
