2003: Winter 2014

Posted by

Hi everyone!

I hope all is well with my fellow 2003-ers!  Not too much to report this time, but what we do have is super exciting, so here goes!

JJ Bell writes that she finished the Marine Corps Marathon this fall – her third time running this marathon, and her fourth marathon overall!  I was lucky enough to see her run past when I was spectating during the 2012 MCM, so it’s good to hear she did so well again this year without my moral support.  (Just kidding, JJ – congratulations on a great accomplishment!)

Next, a wedding!  Elizabeth Ide-Niemann got married to Captain Gregory Niemann on October 5th, 2013 in Siler City, NC.  Torrey Campbell ’04 was a bridesmaid, and Elizabeth’s little sis Amanda Reinken ’05 was in attendance as well.  Congratulations to the happy couple!

And speaking of happy couples – Taryn Chubb is now wearing her Hood ring on her right hand!  She and Dr. Mark White were engaged in October of 2013.  Last I talked to Taryn, she said their plan was to get married in 2014, most likely in the late spring/early summer, in her home state of Kansas.

And another engagement – mine!  Shortly after we bought a house in Leesburg, VA this summer, Matthew MacDonald and I (Leah Giambarresi) got engaged!  We plan to get married in September 2014 in the Frederick area.

I think that’s all we have for this round – everyone, keep those updates coming!
