A few months ago, I put up a post mentioning that my girlfriend was running a marathon in Alaska this June to raise money for leukemia and lymphoma research. Well, I wanted to give you guys a couple of updates.
First off, she stands all of $13 away from her goal of $5,000, and you guys were a huge part of that, giving almost $2,500 in a day. She was overwhelmed by your generosity, and both her and I can’t thank you guys enough for being willing to give to a great cause. Thank you.
And, as a further update, she’s actually not my girlfriend anymore. As of yesterday, she’s now my fiancee`. I proposed in front of Elk Falls in the mountains of North Carolina, and her response was “Are You Serious?”. Apparently, even when dating a blogger, it’s hard to imagine that they’ll ever actually propose. She did say yes once the shock wore off, at least.
We’re probably headed towards an October or November wedding, which means that I’m officially rooting for the Mariners to not win it all this year. Feel free to suck eggs and not be playing meaningful baseball this winter, fellas. You have my permission.
