Yes Mark we are also disappointed you could not come. It would have been so much fun having you and Donna here.We have made friends with our Air BNB hosts
and maybe in the future we will do a house swap with them for this amazing 3 BR home then you your wife, Donna and Tom can come as our guests. I know you did not get an official number for the BAA 5k but consider running it anyway as bandit with us. We are staying the night before with Donna.
