Getting engaged was awesome! Planning a wedding was not. Two procrastinators who have trouble making decisions should not be expected to plan a wedding. We set dates and cancelled them. We made plans and abandoned them. Getting married actually became a contentious debate in our house. The Sunday after Crown King, perhaps still on a runner's high, I asked Norm if he still wanted to get married. When he said yes I announced we would marry at the end of the week. And the race to plan a wedding in one week began. On Monday we announced on Facebook that we would marry at the end of the week and everyone was invited to a potluck dinner at our home on Friday. We could never have done this with out the generous help of our friends. Mark Cosmas at iRun let me hijack the Thursday night group run for our bachelorette party (with the bachelor invited). And yes, I ran with a veil on! Sabrina Redden and Jamil Coury took care of the majority of the reception planning and all of the set up. The kids piano teacher is married to a minister who graciously agreed to marry us. And our friends showed up with yummy contributions to the potluck. I had a few nervous break downs along the way. I might or might not have been on the verge of tears at Old Navy. But in the end we had the most perfect wedding for us. We had 3 photographers and I didn't pay for any of them! It was like being a rockstar! We can never thank Jamil Coury, Sabring Redden, Jennie Elser, and Yael Dane for the time and money they spent to make it a special day for us. In the car after the wedding my youngest said "Your friends did all of this for you? You have really good friends!" Yes we do! Norm and I both agree that being a runner has allowed us personal success that's a lot of fun, but more importantly it has filled our lives with love and fun we never had before we became runners.
