    Congratulations!

    At the risk of being called a nitpicker, YOU are the Fiancé. SHE is the Fiancée.

    Together you are a wonderful couple (and cherished friends).

  116. Wow! Let me first say that I found your blog by searching for Garmin Forerunner 305 reviews, and boy am I glad. What a wealth of information on your site! I also saw your bio - particularly the part about 2006 and it inspired me. Every blogger or daily miler I know is already in shape and it's hard to motivate yourself when you start from at 14 minute mile and you walk the run during your first triathlon. However, I like your honesty and your openness. I travel too so your travel tips are fantastic. Keep up the good work.

    Now, most importantly, Congratulations!

  121. Congratulations Ray! I must admit though that back when you did your surprise skydiving trip post and you kind of built the suspense up without telling us what you did in the post leading up to it I thought you were going to announce that you two were engaged. Funny how you could do such a good job of keeping The Fiancée (formerly known as The Girl) relatively anonymous for so long and yet I had a feeling this was going to happen. Wonderful news.
