I'll Be Back

Wednesday, April 01, 2015      9 comments

Pay Attention

Wednesday, March 25, 2015      19 comments

Not Good-Bye, But "See Ya"

Sunday, March 22, 2015      25 comments

Last evening I went to the Galloway running group's end of the season party. I didn't stay long. I went primarily to say thanks and 'see ya' as I don't know when I'll be able to run regularly again. Sigh. I know that a positive attitude is ver... Read more

As Good As Gold

No, I didn't take the gold medal in the 1500 meter Senior Games walk. But I finished it, sore feet and all, in 11:16, just 16 seconds behind my time of last year. I took the bronze medal. And I'm just as proud of it as I was of my gold medal las... Read more
