GRS ING NYC Marathon Teammates

While I am very bummed at the fact that the NYC Marathon was just cancelled, I am more bummed at the fact that I won't be spending the weekend with Ethan Zohn and my Grassroot Soccer family.

Enough Already

It feels like we are on day 900 of 90 plus degree heat here in the metro Philly area. Apparently we are not alone as most of the country is sharing space in our Easy Bake Oven. My questions is, just how hot does it have to be for how long before the earth explodes? [...]
