Landmarks and inspiration

Whoa - 11 days without a blog entry - my apologies! :) Not to worry though. it will be a "blogathon" this week! Stay close as I have some very fun entries coming!

It was a true NYC wedding weekend for Diane and Blake, hitting up some of the best landmarks this town offers. As I mentioned in my earlier post about them, no detail was left out.

Their wedding song was by Frank Sinatra, "All the Way" - and it would be the best way for me to describe this couple as they give nothing but 100% to everything!

They started the weekend with a Groom's Dinner at Tavern on the Green followed they next day with 5 and 10K "fun runs" kicking off at the Bethesda Fountain in Central Park. YES - a "fun run" on the day of the wedding! For Diane and Blake, this WAS really just a WALK in the park as they had both been training for their second (yes second) Ironman competition. I'm not sure how many "fun runs" these guys have been on, but I know several marathons are also included in their long running resumes. :)

Meeting under the Chuppah with their race number tags pinned above them was just one of the amazing touches to their beautiful wedding. Congratulations Diane and Blake! Most couples would be leaving for their honeymoon - but not these two! Instead, they took off for nothern Idaho for the Ironman competition first. Blake placed 12th in his age group with the fastest amateur run for the marathon leg with a 3:05, and Diane beat her new hubby in the swim. :) You guys are an inspiration!

I want to say thank you to both families for a fun weekend!! Click the photo below for the slideshow!
