When will Boston registration close??

Boston (registration) excitement is in the air in blog land and facebook land.  The consensus (based upon my informal viewing of comments, etc.) seems to be that it will close before during the 10 minute under BQ time registration window.    I'm still holding out hope that those of us that are 16 seconds under …

Thursday Thoughts

Random Thursday Thoughts: I probably shouldn't have started Operation Spin Dry until AFTER my (soon to be) 14 year old daughter's birthday shin-dig, which consists of me watching six 13 and 14 year old girls at our cabin for 2 days.  Yikes! A couple bottles of vino sure would calm the nerves during this event.  The …
