I officially retired from the United States Army after serving more than 21 years. My friend LTC Darren Blagburn and my beautiful fiancé set up a party that included my family and friends here in Boise and those from out of town.

AugustCynthia and I ran our first race together called the Boise Foothill XC12k it was so fun to run with her. You can see it on her blog at http://rundreamlaugh.blogspot.com/2011/08/foothills-xc12k-race-recap.html
Then we ran the Project Athena 10k
We rounded out the month with a great run called the Dirty Dash at Bogus Basin. I got to meet Cynthia's very awesome sister Elisa whom I had never met before and run with one of Cynthia's friends Linzi.
