Yukon and I helped out at the Anchorage Mayor's Marathon today, handing out water, bananas, and pretzels to about 2,000 runners and walkers participating in the 1/2 marathon event. After our own events of the last week, it was nice to do something together (we even had a date night last night as Bear went to a friend's house for a sleepover).
I am always so impressed by the fortitude of some of these folks who manage to run, walk, creep or crawl their way to the finish line. It never ceases to amaze me and I am humbled to watch some of them complete their first ever event of such magnitude.
Yukon spent most of the day in an improputu drum circle led by one of our young friends from church (Trinity sponsored the Aid Station). He enjoys drumming and was quite entertaining, especially with the monkey hanging from his hat and the cowbell. More Cowbell, Yukon.
We needed a huge nap after we were finished, though. Bear got to spend some quality time with Sponge Bob this afternoon.
