super fabulous deets

just wanted to give some e-props to some of my favorite people...

nancy peck
who finished the boston marathon in 3 hours, 5 minutes yesterday. this woman is my inspiration. taken from the valley news...

If any runners from our neck of the woods enjoyed it more, it might have been Sunapee resident Nancy Peck, who finished in 3:05:59. Only Scott Stone of Lebanon (3:00:52) ran faster among Upper Valley runners, and only 32-year-old Tammie Robie of Milford, N.H., (3:03:59) outran Peck among women from New Hampshire.

“That's my PR (personal record),” said Peck, who coached the Woodstock High girls basketball team in the early 1990s. “I just ran Chicago (in October) in 3:14 to qualify for Boston. The best I've ever done here was a 3:50, years ago.” And this was at age 42, two years after she began a gradual return to running and triathlon racing after she injured a knee while teaching skiing.

Among 2,538 woman finishers ages 40-49 yesterday, she came in seventh, and in the overall women's field of 7,966, she took 73rd.

“Life after 40,” Peck said with a smile. “You get faster, man.”

the prince
last saturday night, after serving on a fake jury, jonathan and i went to the seattle u moot court banquet at palisade. just a month away from graduation, he was awarded one of the most prestigious awards at the seattle u school of law...nominated to the national order of the barristers.

he was one of 8 who was recognized in his graduating class of 300.

it's given to recognize individuals who excel in participating and running advocacy programs at their law school. and it's pretty sweet. :)
