It’s Memorial Day in the United States, a national holiday to commemorate those who died in military service to our country. Many Americans also view Memorial Day as a sort of unofficial “beginning of summer”. It’s a time to enjoy the company of family and friends.

I’m taking off today — as I did the entire weekend, actually — as a rare holiday from blogging. In a couple hours, I’ll be running my first-ever 10k race with my good friend, Mac. I’ll post a race report at my fitness blog later this morning.

Get Rich Slowly will return on Tuesday. The posting schedule will be light this week.
