he joined the club

Brennan ran a half marathon about a week ago up in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin.  My brother-in-law, Rich also ran it, making him and Brennan the newest members of the Cardon half marathon club haha.  Out of the 10 siblings/spouses, 9 of us have run at least one half marathon now.  I will go ahead and take this opportunity to taunt Caleb (the only one yet to run one), even though I am pretty sure he doesn't read this blog.  Come on Caleb, everybody's doing it.  It's time to follow suit. :)

Crystal, Kelbie, and Caden ran the half too. Everyone did a great job. And they had some fantastic cheerleaders. :) The weather was perfect for the runners but a bit chilly for those of us watching.

Kelbie and her posse.
Caden had quite a bit left to give at end of the race. He surprised us all with quite a sprint to the finish line. I mean check out that blur. :)
Me and Brennan after the race.
They gave out chocolate milkshakes at the finish line. Brennan was nice enough to share his with me and Jade.  It was pretty yummy.  It was a long day, starting at 4 am to get ready to make the drive up to Wisconsin, but it was fun to cheer everyone on.  We also stopped at Galena, Illinois, on our way home.  It's just a little tourist trap but it was fun to check out some of the shops. I wouldn't mind going back sometime when it's not a crazy packed Saturday.

Good job Brennan! And Crystal, Rich, Kelbie, and Caden!


  1. Way to go Brennan. What about Tatum? She better start training here soon!

  2. What fun times! I already pointed that fact out to Caleb and he didn't care.
