Andy Burleson's first marathon

Andrew Burleson completed his first Marathon today and he finished all 26 miles! As a respite from studying for his masters degree in business administration, Andy ran the 2nd annual OBX Marathon on the North Carolina cape outer banks.

The marathon started on the outer banks north of nags head and ended in Manteo on Sunday, November 11.

Janet, Noel and and I were there to cheer him on. . .

Andrew Burleson finished 321 out of more than 1,000 competitors, completing the grueling 26 mile run in under four hours!

He got a nice medal for completing the marathon and he is now qualified to run in the Boston Marathon.

I never noticed it before, but Andy has inherited my washboard abs:

Andy and Dusty were in serious pain as they approached the finish line, we were impressed:

At the marathon finish line everyone gathered to cheer on the runners:

Afterwards we went out for barbequeue. Is it just me, or is this sign just wrong?
