Leeann & Dan's Wedding

As most of you know, Eric’s sister, Leeann and her new husband, Dan, got married this weekend.  The joyous occasion took place at the Cathedral of Christ the King followed by a fabulous evening of dinner and dancing at the Fox Theatre Atlanta in the Egyptian Ballroom.  It was wonderful to spend the weekend with the Buergler and Farrell families before our own big day.
They say it’s good luck for a brother and sister to both marry in the same year! 
Congratulations Mr & Mrs Attanucci!!! We’re SO excited for you :)

Ironman 70.3

Congratulations to Eric for completing his big triathlon of the season!  After completing a sprint triathlon (500m swim, 12 mile bike, 5k run) and an Xterra sprint triathlon (swim, mountain bike, and trail run), and several other single sport races - Eric completed an Ironman 70.3 at Fort Wilderness at Disney World in Orlando, Florida.  This race includes a 1.2 mi. swim • 56 mi. bike • 13.1 mi. run.   Eric beat his goal swim time and finished in 49 minutes.  He kicked butt on the bike, averaging 19.2 mph!  And finished the run in about 3 hours.
We had a fun trip to Orlando for the race.  We enjoyed a pre-race dinner at Macaroni Grill (thank you LifeTeen families for the gift card!).  Sunday afternoon after the race, we walked through Downtown Disney and had sushi and wine for dinner at Wolfgang Pucks.  During our car rides we began listening to Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace CDs courtesy of Elizabeth’s parents.
Eric’s post-race thoughts:  Glad to finish, looking forward to another half Ironman in the future, and when we can afford the food budget, he’d love to train for a full Ironman
Congratulations, Eric!

Beach Weekend

I enjoyed an awesome weekend down at Fort Myers Beach with Eric’s sister, Leeann; her friends; and Mrs. B for Leeann’s Bachelorette and a few days of sun, sand, dining out, shopping, and lots of girlie drinks!
Looking forward to many more memories with the Buergler Ladies :)
