We were in for a wild ride right from the start.

 Bruce Springsteen was back in town, and we amazingly won tickets through Autism Speaks 5K, donated by Patti Springsteen.  Patti was inspired by a girl with autism who could horseback ride just like a normally developing teen, and wanted to donate tickets to the Autism Speaks cause.  Coincidentally, we were the lucky winners - my wife & I have been active in the Autism Speaks 5K and Walks for many years, and have a sweetheart 13-year-old daughter with autism.
