April 2009 marks several significant events. First, Russ' parents will be staying here for their third visit to the CNMI. They made their first trip here in 1994 and their second trip in 2006. We look forward to having them visit again shortly.
When they were here in 2006, we spent Easter with them. They got to join us at Easter Sunrise Service on Mt. Tapochau. Several churches gather together at 6am on Easter morning to watch the beautiful sunrise on the lawn near the old DLNR building.
Next week, we'll be hosting an Xterra Pro, Mike Vine, who was the champion of the 2002 Inaugural Xterra Saipan race. He and the other pros will vie for the 2009 Xterra Saipan Championships on Saturday, April 18, 2009.
One week later follows the 20th Annual Tagaman Triathlon. Russ and I will compete as a team with him swimming & biking and me finishing with the run. Russ just returned from the Xterra Guam race where he competed solo and had lots of fun.
