As self appointed crew chief for Rupert the Round Racing, I wanted take a moment to say how proud I am of my walker, and my runner.
First of all my walker, my darling Sylvia. Sweetie I so admire your courage and determination to enter The flying pig. I am going to be excited to cheer you on as you take on this monumental task. Your dedication to achieving this goal has been fabulous, as well as inspiring to me. I promise you that there will not be a husband in that crowd that will be prouder than I will be of you.
And now my runner, our dear friend Maura. I am so thankful for the close, sisterly bond of friendship, camaraderie, and inspiration that you have forged with Sylvia, as well as the fun friendship we share. I am very happy for you as you finally reach the culmination of what is a very lofty goal that you and my wife have strived for for the last few months. I will be happily cheering you on as you compete in your race Saturday. I am very proud of you also.
I will be praying that you will both be free from harm or accident, and feel the full excitement of a job well done as the two of you participate in your respective races.
Way to go you two.
