    Photo replay: Going to California

    Mac and Bubby hit the road Friday, headed to California, where Mommy Megan will run her first-ever full marathon.

    Good luck to Megan, for whom my heart swells with pride as I consider her conquering 26.2 miles. On foot.

    May the luck o' the Irish be with her — and with everyone else today.

    Happy St. Patrick's Day!

    Happy St. Patrick's Day! Is Megan running the LA Marathon? Just watched the 5 AM news and they said traffic in LA would be a nightmare! 250 closures and detours. Good Luck to Megan!

    Hope you're having a luck-filled St. Patrick's Day, everyone. Just wanted to share that Megan finished the marathon in 4:09:12. An awesome time! So proud of her. :-D

    My son-in-law is a marathon runner. May the wind be at her back the entire way. :)
