Team Photo Session

At Saturday's practice (5/1) we will be doing a team photo session. The team website needs some photo updates and the weather on Saturday looks decent. If you can't make it, maybe we'll add another day to get additional photos for the website.

Please bring your most current NB uniform and gear for the photos. If you don't have the newest kit, that's ok. Also, please avoid competitor gear. Otherwise, you'll hear me griping about doing lots of Photoshop work, and no one wants that.

Thanks in advance!

Furniture for sale

Anyone looking for furniture? My brother is getting new furniture for his condo and is selling a cloth loveseat, a white leather couch and possibly a coffee table. I'll post photos and prices, when available. Just a heads up.

Huskies and Patriot's Day

It's cold and raining. It's New England outdoor track racing.

Tomorrow, several NBBrs will be at Northeastern's track in Dedham for the Solomon Invite.
Philip Mainwaring, Steve Stewart, Roland Lavallee and Yvonne Green are in the 1500. Stewart is returning in the 400m for a double. And Pete Foote is debuting as an NBBr in the 5k.

If you don't know that Marathon Monday is in three days, then you need to reevaluate what Patriot's Day means to you.
Ryan Carrara, Mike Maceiko, Liz Turner, Chris Voce, and former NBBr Cherie Charbonneau will be toeing the Marathon line in Hopkinton on Monday.
Across the race course and across the city itself, NBBrs will be out cheering for them and the thousands of others that have taken the challenge that is the Boston Marathon.

Speaking of Disney...

(Philip don't start crying.)

If you were a Disney character, who would you be? You can submit your suggestions for fellow team members.

No Pixar and definitely not Dreamworks, strictly old school Disney.

At the UMass Lowell meet:
Kevin Alliette, Dan Hocking, Joan Bohlke, Jenn Deal

Road racing:
Anna King, Nicole Mauro, Sasha Varanka

Roommate Search

My brother is looking for a new roommate for his condo. His current one is moving out at the end of May. The condo is a 2 bedroom in Waltham on Walnut Street (right off of Moody St). This is really close to Bentley track and right in the heart of the Moody shops and restaurants.

The condo itself is newly renovated. There is a coin-op laundry room in the building. The condo building is near the top of the Moody St hill, so no worries about the Charles River flooding.

If you are interested, let me know and I will forward your information along.
