This weekend is the 11th Annual Beach to Beacon race and the first year we have missed it since I met Doug in 2001. And the first one he has missed period.
Doug's entire immediate family, 90% of his extended family are all converging in Maine for the race and the annual Lobster Fest at the house.
This year, because of new jobs, daycare closings, extra vacations planned, we are not there. We are very sad. Seriously sad. We are setting up some times to do a video conference with everyone but it isn't the same.
We will not do this again next year, next year we will figure out how to be there!
We miss you and we will be there in 2 weeks!
