Weekend Report

The main event of this weekend was a Saturday morning 10k in support of finding a cure for pancreatic cancer.

We are becoming hauntingly close to "experiencing" one full year without my Aunt Peggy, and I know its weighing heavily on my family. I know she would want us to be celebrating and enjoying life, the way she did, but it's hard not to miss her every single day. Nothing is, or ever will be, the same without her.

Running a race with Pancreatic cancer survivors, effected family members and friends, and the likes, made for a pretty emotional and empowering run.

My two girlfriends that ran it, ran with green bands that we had made for Aunt Peg - which was really cool...

and Joel bid me a farewell at the starting line, to just have fun the way Aunt Peggy would have wanted.

We all did an amazing job - and it was my fastest 10k every at 1:06pm (pacing at 10:45/mi) - and we sure did celebrate our accomplishments after.

We met up with a bigger group for brunch at M Street in Santa Monica, and Joel and I continued the fun the rest of the day. We went to a 3 hour happy hour at our favorite local bar The Glendon, and then came home and had "justonemore". 

Sunday we took Roscoe to the dog park, made tortialla-less fajitas, watched the grammys, and cheersed to our good health.

Stop.  Take just one moment...
