In all the commotion of Clare Olivia's birth last week, I forgot to mention another big deal in the Tippett family. On July 6, August ran his first half marathon at Hernia Hill in Murphys. He completed the extremely hilly run on a hot summer morning in 2 hours and 8 minutes which was faster than any of his training times on much flatter terrain.
Granddaddy sponsored him in the race and Anna Mae and Gianna went along to cheer him across the finish line.
