The training has finally all paid off. Craig competed in the NYC Maraton on November 2, 2008. He ran the 26.2 mile course in 4 hours and 22 min. What an animal. I am so proud of his accomplishment, but I am also glad that it is over with. Through the race my sister Sarah and I met him at two spots. The first was at mile 8 - where he ran up to us and scared the living day lights out of us. The second spot we saw him was at mile 14 1/2. He changed socks, grabbed some power gel shots and off he went. We tried to catch him at mile 18 but completly missed him.

On July 14, 2008 we went to Bon Jovi! We had the best time. The best part about the entire concert is that we paid only $60 per ticket. We were sitting in the nose bleed section! Then a concert official came up and asked us if we wanted to relocate to seats closer to the stage. What do you think our answer was? So we sat two rows from the floor and about in the middle of the arena. It was definantly God at work in our humble lives we live. So he sang some old and some new and ended with . . . . Living on a Prayer! This was definantly a great way to start off the work week.

Our summer started out with a bang. We planned our vacation for June 1 thru June 8. We took a cruise. It is a great vacation, especially if you take it with friends and family. Then we traveled home for the third weekend for a wonderful wedding. June ended with another wedding at home. Craig's youngest brother got married. Needless to say I am glad June is over with. July won't be as crazy but we will be heading to Rockport, Tx for the 4th annual Polish fishing tournament. Yes I know what you are thinking, but the tournament is actually turning into quite a big ordeal. There are approximatly 300 fisher men and women that will enter this tournament. This is the kind of thing that is thought up while sitting and relaxing and drinking a beer. Its all FUN! Then in August (15 and 16) I have my 10 year class reunion. I have been planning this silly reunion for the last 2 years. Everything seems to be comming together. Well, the best thing happening this year is Craig and I will be married for 5 years on October 4, 2008
