Thanks, Salty. I like to think so.

I would say Watertown. Waterbury is hardly Southern CT.

I lived in Middletown for a while. :)

The only race I ever skipped was the day we took our son up to college. I wasn't disappointed at all. I still got the shirt at packet pickup.

Trying to remember if it was Waterbury or Watertown. Not sure. She'll send me the info.
She's always had a phenomenal voice but that talent, like so many others, has gone unnoticed by the majority - but not by me. If you're interested, you can listen and see her in this and other videos. :-)

Thank you for putting your daughter first. There are a lot of parents who wouldn't.

I've never skipped a race before but I will this time. The HM I was going to do on the 24th will have to go unraced (by me). My daughter is performing (she's a singer) in Southern Ct. on Saturday evening the 23rd (show is at like 10:00 - so who knows when it's going to end). I can't see going to Southern Ct. for the evening (till after midnight in all likelihood), going without sleep or with little sleep and then trying to drive to the cape and race in the early morning. Since my daughter is more important to me than the race - well, you can see why I made that choice. Disappointed but excited to see my daughter perform.
