A check off the bucket list.....
I don't have any pictures of him running--and I tried to respect the fact he probably didn't feel like pictures post-race---but JEFF RAN THE NYC MARATHON! In 4:20 and some change. Folks, that's NOT an easy task. Especially considering the conditions Sunday were VERY windy and at times he felt like the wind might literally blow him down. I'm so proud of him. Not just for running the race, but for still being a super hard working husband and father ALL THE WHILE putting in mega miles to get trained. He never looks at this but I just have to brag on him that he is an amazing guy.
Again thanks to Nana--and the VILLAGE--for stepping up to help with kids for us to be gone. We greatly appreciate it!
**Pic in middle is a fallen Marine who was on our flight from ATL to Newark on Friday. The whole plane sat in teary silence as we watched him leave with a HUGE police/Marine escort. It was so touching and I will never forget how proud I was(AM!) to be an American at that very moment...GOD BLESS AMERICA!!
