Today is my son Andy's adoption day. It was on this day seven years ago that the State of Utah declared him legally ours. We will celebrate, as always with a huge dinner at Bucca di Beppo in downtown Salt Lake.

I'll do a short, easy run and some striders this afternoon ahead of the Thanksgiving Point Half Marathon tomorrow at 7 am.

Congrats to the Murphy clan! I had no idea, that's awesome.

Thanks. He looks enough like Abby, our bio-child, so that people wouldn't guess if we didn't tell them.

He might appreciate it if you drop the 'r':) Congrats Mr Murphy and family.

I'm excited to see how you do in this Rob. Tough course but I think you are pulling into the groove this year.

He's a lucky kid. Pretty cool family to end up in.

Why Bucca di Beppo? Is that where you ate when you first got him? What kind of restaurant is that?

Congrats on 7 yrs with him (officialy)
