Father's Day - 2015

Father's Day - 2015


We started the day with a trip to the American Helicopter Museum in West Chester.  



American Helicopter Museum







The three of us were able to go on our first helicopter ride.  It was a 5 minute loop, we probably went up about a half a mile in the air (I am guessing).

Wow, was that awesome.  Chris sat in the back with me.  Nathan sat up front with the pilot.  The boys had a blast.  We had the headsets on and all.  I will take them back for another one when they are teenagers, but what a cool experience.

After that, we went to Chuck E Cheese in Chesterbrook.  First time I had ever been to this location.  It was pretty empty, so we had a lot of fun.






Finally, we went to meet Kiki Benjamin.  Unfortunately, the boys were not allowed back to meet Kiki, but Butch Benjamin hung out with them for a little bit while I got to meet Kiki.  We are so happy for Kevin, Lisa, and Jacob.  Butch and Maureen finally have their granddaughter.










BEST FATHER'S DAY EVER

Bouncing Buns Trail Run

Bouncing Buns Trail Run
Palmerton, PA


Tough course, lots of hills, but another awesome time at Suny Rest Resort in Palmerton.  Jared and I went up, ran the race, then hung out for a few hours.  A good time as always.

Oddyssey Half Marathon

Oddyssey Half Marathon
Fairmount Park, Philadelphia, PA


First Half Marathon that Jared and I ran together. My buddy Barry was there again, juggling deflated footballs.



Jared and I were the last ones to cross the starting line.













We ran together for about 3 miles, and then Jared took off.  It was a really nice course with lots of shade, but man was it hot.  Jared was waiting for me with a beer at the finish.  This was a really fun race that I would recommend to anybody.

Sahara Sam's

Took a trip to Sahara Sam's Water Park with Tommy and Susan Graham.  A bit crowded, but the kids seemed to have fun.  No other pics (didn't want to get cameras/phones wet).

Delaware Junior Mud Run

Delaware Mud Run Jr.
Middleton, DE

Last fall, the Schierbaum family and I did the Delaware Mud Run.  We saw then that they hosted a similar event for kids in the summer time.  Needless to say, we made sure that we signed the kids up for it in 2015.









2015 Delaware Mud Run Jr.



Unfortunately, the way it worked out, we were not able to have the kids all run in the same heat.  Sierra ran at 5:15, and we didn't get there until about 6:30 (so we did not get to see her run).  The boys had the option of running at 7:15 on their own, or at 7:45 with me.  Chris wanted to run with me, and Nathan wanted to run on his own.

So off went Nathan




 







and within 30 seconds of Nathan crossing the finish line, Chris and I were off.












The boys did their first obstacle course/mud run.  I couldn't be prouder.

Dub-C 4Miler

Dub-C 4Miler
West Chester, PA

My 5th Dub-C 4 Miler.

Another running season, another Dub-C 4 Miler for me and Jared.  I wasn't able to run it the previous year because of my surgery.  It was good to get out and do it again this year.  Megan Darling came with us and did the 2 mile walk.  A good time as always.
