To the left of Kevin is one of the many Marines who volunteered their time for the marathon. In my civilian life, I don't have many chances to see the men and women who sacrifice so much to protect the U.S. and so many other countries around the world. It was inspiring to see many men and women from all branches of the Armed Forces running the marathon with all of the strength and courage that they could muster. There were also many participants wearing shirts in memory of a loved one who lost their life defending our country and our freedom.
To all the men and women of the Armed Forces, especially those overseas, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your families. Thank you for your sacrifice and courage.

As you can see, a decent fall day. Leaves have fallen, 40ish degrees. Onward and upward!
A delicate, white dusting...
...and winter was upon us!
Believe it or not, the summit is hidden by all that blowing snow above Kevin, and all of those rocks are covered in ice. We didn't venture much further. While it's never fun to give up and turn back before you bag the peak, it's better to live to tell the tale!

Well, I've changed my tune. I have become sucked into cyberspace in a way that goes beyond searching for discount plane tickets and closeout running shoes. I am now an avid blog reader...friends' blogs, mommy blogs, product review blogs, teenage angst blogs, Catholic apologetics blogs...the list goes on. So, now that I'm hooked on reading them, why not add my own two sense to the blog-filled cyberuniverse?
Here I am, or should I say, here WE are cyberspace! Kevin and Andrea are making their inaugural post.
