They run regularly, but the farthest ever was 10 km. Then Tinus decided that they are ready for 21 km and there is no better place to do this breakthrough run than in Chicago, along Lake Michigan.
They entered in the "Fourie-Chicago half marathon", the only 2 entrants in the race, although they shared the road with hundreds of other runners, roller-bladers and cyclists.
They crossed the finish line at 20h50 while the crowd of 3 applauded and cheered!
They did it! They were not out of breath, but their legs were like jelly - the only one who was breathing fast, was me...
I was so proud! They are so special and focused and diciplined. And now they did their first half marathon! And each of them is running their race of life with excellence. I am so proud!
Or did I say it already?
