Season’s Greetings to All & Here is What’s New

Just want to give a quick shout and say Happy & Merry to all and wish you the very best of whatever you celebrate. I also want to mention a few new things for me in 2013 that are pretty exciting.

First, I was selected by Newton Running to serve as one of the Philanthropic Brand Ambassadors.  Besides being a big believer in Newton’s technology and philosophy and the whole concept behind natural running, I have much respect and admiration for the work they do in the philanthropy space. As an Ambassador, I will represent Newton at various expos and events. and wear their product line. (and happily so!).

Next up… as many of you know, I had been one of the editors for Liberty Sports Magazine for many years. Liberty has decided to channel its energy and resources in a different direction and has sunset their publication. I still maintain a great relationship and friendship with its publisher and will no doubt partner with them for future projects and endeavors, but my role as editor, writer, “Liberty guy” is behind me.

Which opens the door to return to something that I did several years ago prior to Liberty Sports, and that is write and provide content for PhillyFIT Magazine.  PhillyFIT’s publisher, Jami Appenzeller,  and I have been friends for close to 10 years. And for several years, I wrote a cross breed of content for PhillyFIT that centered around multisport racing and training. Well, now we are coming back.  While my content will again relate to multisport racing and training, it will not be geared to the type A triathlete looking for training or nutrition tips. I want my articles to talk about the underdogs of the sport.  The people who are accomplishing great things against the odds through, belief, determination, and that powerful word called hope. As I told Jami, I want my pieces to move people to tears, but motivate them into taking action.

And lastly, and this is a big one…. there is a very real probability that I will be joining my buddy Ethan Zohn’s charity, Grassroot Soccer on a 10 day trip to South Africa in late March into April.  The main objective of the trip will be to race the 2013 Two Oceans Ultra Marathon in Cape Town. But while there we will take in the many sights of the country and check in on some of the amazing work being done by Grassroot Soccer in their quest to eliminate HIV/AIDS in South Africa. Of course I will have to bring a pair of goalie gloves and jump in wherever I can. The invitation to join this group came two days ago when Ethan sent me a text on the subject. I still have some questions and things to sort through but will know more, and hopefully have a definitive decision very soon. Stay tuned on this! It will be a life changing trip.

More to come!

Train safe, race smart, and thank the volunteers.
