We had a great time jumping the McCarren 5K on Saturday, May 4. The theme of the race was Star Wars (May the 4th be with you!) so Tim's dorky hat actually has the image of a Star Wars storm trooper on it but sadly it's obscured. And Heather is Princess Leah...not. Okay we're slowing [...]

And as you may know by now, Virginia became the first #1 seed in the history of the men's tournament to lose [...]
When you think of St. Patrick's Day you might visualize a grand parade, green beer, and four-leaf clovers, but did you know about the St. Patrick's Cross and St. Patrick's Bell? Neither did we.
