... finished his first marathon!
Here he is just almost at the finish line after running 26.2 miles!
He even managed a smile and a thumbs up.
At the beginning of the year, Blake set out to run a marathon before the year was out. He began training several times a week, ran a 1/2 marathon in August, and finally completed his goal.
Here he is at the finish line.
Blake's dad, Andy, also ran the race and finished just after Blake. He also managed a smile and a wave to his cheering section.
They did it! We are so proud of you both!
