Chapter One: UPDATES & Why I am here at VT?
**UPDATE: April 8, 2015**
What's been happening lately?
Have not updated my intro page in over a year. I will be adding a few new pages as I had the privilege of visiting Portland, OR, Los Angeles, Scottsdale, Arizona, and Reno, Nevada.
Since my last blog here, I've ran 6 more marathons, the San Francisco Marathon, the California International Marathon (Twice), the Napa Valley Marathon (twice including one just over 2 weeks ago), and Portland Marathon. I wll also be running the Oakland Marathon in 6 days on March 22, 2015.
On March 1, 2015, I ran the Napa Valley Marathon and ran my fastest marathon time ever completing the run in 3 Hours 48 Minutes and 22 seconds! I was very proud of myself as I broke the family fastest marathon time (posted by my dad of 3 Hours 50 Minutes and 17 Seconds).
Since last October, my trips included visits to Washington DC, Singapore, and Portland Oregon.
Hopefully, I will be able to add a lot of new photos and pages. Just haven't had the drive to do it recently.
This is me in Haverhill, Massachusetts in April 2015!!
Next on the Agenda
I've recently developed an interest in my personal genealogy and have discovered Welsh, Scottish, and English Ancestry. I would love to head back to the UK to explore those regions.
I would also love to visit East Frisia, an area of Germany near Leer (a city translated in English that means "empty").
In 2015, possible trips in the making include: Iceland, Lapland (Northern Sweden/Finland), Boston, MA, Portland, Oregon, and possibly Kansas.
How I Found VT
Why am I at VT? Initially I joined because I was researching apartment rental information for a trip to Buenos Aires and via a Yahoo search engine, I found myself here.
Realizing, how important traveling is to me, I've since developed my page and gradually try to add a new picture as often as possible.
