This weekend my husband ran in the 2007 Nike Hood to Coast Relay. This is a relay race that starts at the top of Mt. Hood in Oregon and ends at the coast in Seaside, Oregon. He was on a team with, I think, 11 other people. They took turns running legs of the race. Bryan ran 3 legs from 8-10 miles each. He might have a couple hours in between each leg to sleep or eat. During the race, there is always someone from your team running. There were 12,000 runners this year, so about 1200 teams. Nike actually flew in 70 pro teams to compete. Bryan's team did very well, finishing in about 24 hours. They were like the 130th team to finish, so pretty good out of 12oo teams. All proceeds went to the American Cancer Society. Since Nike sponsered the race, he got a pretty cool T-shirt. Mary Paul and I missed having him here with us, but were glad he got to participate in the relay. The team he ran with has invited him to run again next year. Mary Paul is excited about that because she'd like another medal to play with.

Well, Mary Paul is officially mobile. She has been dragging herself around on her stomach by her elbows...like a low military crawl. Now she is crawling. It is time to baby proof our home. I guess I'll ask my sister Samantha for advice on that since she and Dave just finished getting their house ready. I don't think Daisy has any idea what she is now in for...or maybe she does. As a side note, I knew I had a squeaky voice, but I had no idea it was this squeaky.
