More pics from the wedding!

What a beautiful wedding! And now they are off to San Diego for a brief honeymoon before Brian has to be back to work on the ADA Walk coming up in two weeks. They plan a longer honeymoon after the marathon!

Long-Acklin Wedding

Hey everybody, Dave and I just got back from Brian and Meg's wedding in Prescott on Saturday. I am going to attempt to download photos, if I can figure out how to do that. It was a great wedding...only thing is that Dave didn't get ANY pics of the bridesmaids in their gorgeous hot pink dresses. I will have to get at least one from Brian and put it on here!

Hey Everybody...How's it going?

Greetings, TEAM-D!!! I hope this finds all of you working hard on not only your training, but YOUR FUNDRAISING! Now is the time to jump start that do NOT want to be worried about fundraising when you are trying to run 20 miles!!!

We have established the date for the team garage sale as November 13-14. If you have stuff to sell, please either bring it with you to the Pasta Party on November 7, or make arrangements to get it to my house (or for Dave and I to pick it up!). Be sure you have everything marked with your name and a suggested price so we can be sure to credit you for things sold. All your items that sell will be credited to your fundraising account, so dig around and come up with LOTS OF STUFF!

We are also looking to set a date for a group Fundraiser at Buffalo Wings N Rings in Chandler. They have offered to donate 20% of all food sold to TEAM-D. A good opportunity for fun and good food, so start making out your list of people to invite NOW.

Lost Dutchman Half - Sunday Feb. 15th 2009

Hi All:

Hope you had a great Valentine's weekend. John & I ran the Lost Dutchman Half Sunday. It was chilly at the start but turned out to be a beautiful morning. The desert course was peaceful and scenic. There were some hills but with such an expanse of desert it didn't seem so bad. They had a fake "wall" at mile 10 for the half and 23 for the full...a cruel joke as it was at the top of the steepest hill. After getting to the top - it was pretty much downhill to the finish. I would certainly do it again next year. We enjoyed some tasty post race snacks but I was really looking for the beer tent to no avail. John ran with me and we finished in 2:07. Feeling ok and finally back to normal post marathon. Take care all.

Welcome to the 2009 Team Diabetes Blog!

Hi Everyone! I thought it'd be more efficient for us to keep track of each other with a blog instead of sending emails.

Right now I only have a few of you authorized to post to the blog. If someone can send me the emails of everyone on the team, I can authorized them to post on this blog.

This is real easy to use. It even allows you to add pictures or videos to the blog. You or anyone can also add comments to each posting.

Try it. See how you like it.
