Well, “we’ve” had about a week to recover from our big weekend in Detroit. Tony didn’t even need a week, he felt good after about one day. He was sore the day after but that was about it. Show off. But seriously, I am so proud of him. He ran his very first marathon in 4 hours and 25 minutes!
We had a blast in Detroit. Some of our dearest friends hosted us and we felt right at home. Josh and April are two of the most open hearted, fun loving, beautiful people and we are priveledged to call them friends. They shared their beautiful home with us....not to mention the fact that they let me snuggle their sweet baby boy Luke. Bliss. Our friend Danae was gracious enough to feed us while we were there and provided much of the laughter. She is a definite fav in the Schmid house…we so badly miss living within walking distance of her, and it felt like old times sharing a meal together topped off, of course, with her famous raspberry bars for dessert. And last but not least our pals Jay and Liz, what an inspiration these two are. They spent their six year anniversary running for an amazing cause. Check out this video from Kensington church , they raised an insane amount of money for clean water in Kenya. It’s a tear jerker. So proud to know many people who ran for this cause.

Also side note; Liz beat the boys with a time of 4 hours and 4 minutes (I think that was her official time) Nice work guys! So proud of them! April and Josh’s house was right on the marathon route (mile 17) so we were able to see them all pass while we snapped pictures and cheered them on... right before it got really hard.
