So she made it. Becca started her half marathon at 7 am on Saturday morning May 26th. Let me tell you this, she was bookin! She finished at 1 hour 58 minutes and 12 seconds. This was a personal best for her. Her last time for the half marathon (13.1 miles) during her training was 2 hours 8 minutes, so a considerable improvement. She finished 20th in her age group (20-24) and 300th out of 900 runners over all. The winner of the half marathon ran it in 1 hour 38 minutes. So hey Becca was only 20 minutes back from the winner.

Becca’s Aunt Jane ran the half marathon as well and despite an injury and never being able to run the full 13 miles during her training (the most she was able to run was 8 miles due to the injury) finished the race without stopping in 2 hours and 38 minutes. We were so proud of both of them.


Why am I so Happy???

Cause I just saved a ton of money on my car insurance! Yeah I know that was lame but I am really exited. Car insurance (especially for those who own Mustang GTs and can’t read speed limit signs) is ridiculous. It should be called car insurgence not insurance. I’ve kinda been one of those guys who like familiarity. I kept the insurance that I had when I lived with my parents. I figured if it’s good enough for them it’s good enough for me. Well This particular company likes to raise my rates every 6 months. Not to mention lose paper work forget to fax information and pretty much lie every time I got them on the phone. Well it was getting time to get the Stang out again for the summer. I got my rate and sure enough the rate went up AGAIN! So much in fact that the Stang would have to stay in her stable for a while longer. This upset me as you may imagine. So the wife and I started to play the wheel and deal game with all the new fangled car insurance places. Long story short. Progressive insured our cars (Mustang included) for 10 bucks more than it costs us right now with the mustang in storage. So basically for $10 more a month I can drive my 05 Mustang GT instead of a 95 Escort.

Needless to say the Pony will be out of the corral very soon! Too bad Progressive doesn’t do Student loans!

In honor of my race.

This only makes sense if you have seen this episode or have sound. Probably one of my favorite episodes ever of Seinfeld for obvious reasons.
