First, a picture from the Green Bay Marathon. This is a wonderful picture showing how three co-workers spent their weekend. On the left (holding the Gatorade) is Lisa, who acted as sherpa during the race. She is collecting gloves from Casey and replenishing our Gu supply. Another friend was the photographer and captured several nice shots.
In other "Congratulations" news, we received word that my brother-in-law was selected for promotion to the rank of Senior Chief in the United States Navy. For those unfamiliar with military rank structure, there is only one enlisted rank, Master Chief, above this. For those who are familiar with the military, you can understand my sister's pride in the fact that her husband was selected for this promotion his first time up.
My brother-in-law has always accepted the tough assignments that lead to rapid promotion. During a recent tour as a boot camp "Company Commander," (similar to Marine drill instructors) he accepted the added pressure of helping develop a new and successful training facility, complete with Disney style animatronics and Hollywood special effects.
Just who is this Iron Pol?
A former out of shape sailor, who became a marathoner, then a triathlete, Ironman, and ultramarathoner. Now, life has pushed me into short track speed skating. More important than the titles is the lifestyle, and sharing it with others.
