Cousin Ray and daughter Jordan recently ran the Austin Marathon together! As you can imagine, this was a big event in the Cousin Club Chronicles. Ray said, "We finished the marathon in 4:15. I really held Jordan back. She could have done 3:50 easy. We're pretty sure she's the youngest Type 1 (diabetic) to ever finish a marathon. The other youngest person we can find is 24. Jordan is 14." Hooray, Jordan! The family e-mail trails were all lit up with congratulations to the two, with pretty much everyone saying how wonderful Jordan looked post-marathon, and Dad looked ..... well... proud! He's no slouch, either, though, as our only Iron Man cousin. Congratulation, you two!! Well done!
