The Bristos were set to compete in their first half marathon together in 13 years, despite it being canceled they still decided to run the full distance in a trail they mapped out.

To their surprise the couples kids made signs and followed them along the way.

The kids even made fake medals; they say they just wanted their parents to be rewarded for their hard work.

“Just because they have been working so hard on like training and stuff and I know mom really wanted to accomplish this so we wanted to make it special and as much as like the real thing so they didn’t have to go run a sad 13.1 miles alone,” said Anna Bristo, kid of marathon runners.
