Find your love at the Boston Marathon (63 days to go!)

Two of my friends are getting married this weekend. Unlike the rest of us, who met our spouses in class, or on a blind date, or at the local coffee shop, or maybe on eHarmony, John and Ashley met at the Boston Marathon. Take that, Bill Rodgers and your four Boston wins!

A lot of our mutual running friends, myself included, are not able to make it to Louisville this weekend to celebrate with them, and they weren't able to make it to Boston last weekend to hang with all of us in the place their paths first crossed, but that doesn't mean that we aren't all thinking about them this weekend.

Among many common interests, they share a love of running, and a taste for good beer. For that reason, I'll raise a glass in celebration of their love and wish them many miles of love, laughter, and happiness together.

To John and Ashley, two fine runners, two great friends, two hearts meant to be one.

May the road rise to meet you,
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face,
The rains fall soft upon your fields.
And until we meet again,
May God hold you in the palm of his hand.

May God be with you and bless you:
May you see your children's children.
May you be poor in misfortune,
Rich in blessings.
May you know nothing but happiness
From this day forward.

May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the warm rays of sun fall upon your home
And may the hand of a friend always be near.

May green be the grass you walk on,
May blue be the skies above you,
May pure be the joys that surround you,
May true be the hearts that love you.
