State of My Union

Greetings. I have been quite busy as of late which is the reason for my limited writing. All is going very well though. Our TEAM IN TRAINING athletes are coming off an outstanding weekend in St. Petersburg Florida at the St. Anthony’s triathlon. We had two slight casualties during the course of the race and as unfortunate as that is, the dignity and courage that both athletes displayed through their disappointment makes them both champions in my book.

Wow, What a Day

I have been somewhat of a slacker in the blog department. It’s not that I haven’t been full of opinions or that my life has been boring. The fact is the exact opposite is true. I just haven’t had much time to sit and write. But after the very therapeutic and euphoric run that I just had, I feel the need. This weather just doesn’t get any better and it does so much for your mental outlook and emotional stability. To sum it up in a word ….. “ahhhhhhh”.

Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Man of the Year

Many of you know that I have been nominated to run for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Man of the Year award. The Man & Woman of the Year is a national campaign to raise funds to cure leukemia, lymphoma, and myeloma. In case you are not aware of my story, I will give you a few of the highlights. I have been an athlete my entire life, and have been racing endurance sports for close to 25 years but I am also living proof that cancer doesn’t play by any rules.
