Many apologies for the later than usual Tuesday Tidbits post today! If you follow along, you know that this past Sunday was the New York City Marathon. I ran for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation and had a wonderful time. As I mentioned last week, Trent stayed home to keep things moving on the house while I took my mother, 2 aunts and best running friend with me to NYC for support. As the pics below will prove, both Trent and I had a very productive weekend.
Trent installed so much baseboard on the main level and added in the base for several of the windows (apparently, the more formal rooms had a base for the doors and windows…which is extremely cool that we still have the originals). And yes, as I have said before, we will be caulking and re-painting the final coat on the trim FOREVER.
Trent also installed one of the very last light fixtures (it’s another chandelier). However, being the funny guy he is, he left the 1,000 crystals for me to hang. I think I know what I’ll be doing this evening.
The frameless glass and glass door for the main floor guest bathroom turned out perfectly!
Many of you sent messages throughout the weekend about my marathon and I truly appreciate it. The support was overwhelming and I’m ecstatic about the money raised for the Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation (again, thank YOU)! As you can tell below, we had a wonderful weekend!
My name on the huge board with every single runner’s name.
Relaxing in Macy’s with my mother the day before (aka: trying to keep my mind off the next morning).
Times Square with my best running friend, Amy!
The ferry ride to the start line (Staten Island) was incredible and took us by the Statue of Liberty.
The most amazing first mile of a marathon ever!
And finally meeting back up with my family after a very full race day! We all look like we are about to collapse at any moment…we managed to rally by dinner!
No race is complete without…the medal!
Once again, thank you all for the support! And as always, thank you for following along!
