All the above events, with a single exception, were a family affair, often with the other family members running a 10K event. In the case of Rocket City, everyone took a shot at the marathon. (None of us made it.)

The quilt was made by Judy Piper in June, 2005. It is great to sleep under!

As of today, May 2, 2006, I have not entered the exact dates nor the finish times. I have them all neatly listed on one piece of paper. I just need to find that paper !
