Attraversiamo

The literal Italian translation of "attraversiamo" means "to cross to the other side." In common Italian vernacular, one would use it to say "let's cross over," as in crossing the street. At this point in my life, "attraversiamo" represents a new beginning. Crossing over from one phase of my life to another. I'll have a new city, new work environment, new friendships, and a brand-new training goal: Marine Corps Marathon 2008. Coached by Jeff "G-Unit" Gaudette, Jilane and I comprise Team MJ, and we share one goal: to win the MCM challenge and put Team OJ in their place (which is being inferior to us in all aspects of life, for the record). I can't wait to finally get fit, and I can't wait to see where this new phase of my life takes me.

Here goes nothing. Attraversiamo.

Jeff "G-Unit" Gaudette? Never heard of that guy. I once knew a "Jailhouse" Jeff Gaudette. Could they be the same person?

Let's go through Tom's nicknames, starting with "Worst Coach Ever."
