On Monday we gave you a sneak peak of Daddy all beaming-happy after his big half-marathon. (Go Daddy Go!) Today we thought we’d show you how cool the race was – and how cool Mama was for capturing Daddy running to the finish – of course.
First off, the race started and finished at AT&T Park which is where the San Francisco Giants play all their baseball games. Now, if you’re like Daddy this is really cool. If you’re like Mama then you couldn’t care less about baseball and are all: boring. But let me tell you, the Giants stadium is like way cooler than most stadiums. It’s right on the bay and has the most amazing views.
Check out the awesomeness that everyone got to run into at the end of their race:
Yup – that’s the Bay Bridge snuggled in behind there. (And the fog. But you can ignore the fog. We all try to.)
Fiona and Mama were up in those stands there – watching and waiting for Daddy. We tried to cheer for the runners like good spectators but Fiona decided that she did NOT like Mama cheering. So Mama cheered very quiet-like and danced with Fiona to the live cover band.
There were ALOT of racers on the course so Mama wasn’t sure she would see Daddy at all. She even took some photos of a bunch of other racers just in case she missed Daddy so that she could get the feel of it all.
But – since Mama is totally awesome – she saw Daddy right away when he entered the stadium. (It helped that he’s all tall and stuff so she could see his head up above the other runners.)
Check out Daddy racing to the finish:
The finish line was just after this shot. But the craziness did not end when the race ended! Daddy had to wait in a HUGE line just after he crossed the line to get off the field and to find Mama and the Sippy Cup.
Eventually everybody found everybody (including Grandma and Grandpa!) and everybody gave Daddy a big high five for being such a running rock star.
We have to admit though – the Sippy Cup did not really appreciate all of Daddy’s accomplishments. However, she perked right up when she found out that there was a goody bag involved.
SF Giants Bobblehead? Don’t mind if I do.
Congratulations Daddy on a race well raced!
