    Happy New Year Elizabeth,

    Just wanted to let you know that I plan to run the Prague Marathon on May 11th. If you are able you should jet over to run a few miles of it with me.

    Hey Michael,

    That’s great that you’ll be running the Prague Marathon. I will definitely try to make it over there to run a few miles with you!



    HEY, Elizabeth!
    Dennis and I just returned from cycling New Zealand for 3 wks–this time we started at Queenstown and went down around the southern tip and up to Christ Church–were in Dunedin, Invercargill, etc…
