Lucky Guy

This weekend I was reminded again what a lucky guy I am. On Saturday afternoon I came home to find the house filled with many of my friends who came to a surprise party for my 30th birthday. My very sneaky and oh so wonderful girlfriend, Allison, pulled together this surprise, and she even kept it completely quiet until the big day. I was totally surprised, and had absolutely no clue that there was a party being planned.

I would like to thank everyone involved in the planning of the event. Allison for pulling it together, Tara for helping Allison with the preparations and Erik for so vigorously inspecting bicycle seats and other bike accessories to keep me distracted and then delivering me to the party. Also, thank you for the cake Erin and Bart.

I really appreciate that so many people were able to come to the party. It totally made my day and it was so awesome to see so many of my friends. Thanks for coming Neil and Andrea, Steve and Erin, Derek and Michelle, James, Erin and Bart, Tara and Erik, and Ken and Alicia. Also I appreciated the calls from Danielle and the call from the Trouble Triplets. I can’t thank everyone enough for being there for my birthday. The cards, the cake and the company couldn’t have been better. I’m so lucky to have such great people in my life. Thank you.

Training is on Track

We’ve been bad about Blogging…. I know. We’ve been busy, and the few minutes of downtime we’ve had, we’ve enjoyed in peaceful quiet.

So, my training is coming along. I’m back on the road after a brief hiatus. I have finally recovered from my 10 miles on Saturday. I’ll get a few miles in tonight, and hopefully some more on Thursday if it doesn’t rain!!

I promise I’ll make Drew blog soon… his posts are always so much more entertaining than mine!
