TNT Talk at the 2013 Philadelphia Marathon Dinner

My perspective on cancer was always that it was something that happened to others. The sick, the elderly. I grew up one of those perfectly healthy kids who played every sport that I could sink my teeth into. I attended college on a soccer scholarship. I hung on the fringe of a pro soccer career [...]

Riding Life’s Roller Coaster

It’s been an interesting few weeks. On November 3rd, I crossed the Verrazano Narrows bridge with 50,000 of my closest acquaintances on my way to finishing my 4th NYC marathon. It would have and should have been NYC number 5 but Hurricane Sandy had other thoughts last year. In a nice display of class, those [...]

Chapter and Verse

I realize it’s been a while since I have posted. All is well, it’s just been a rather busy time. Much of my energy has been focused on networking and trying to land a job since mine terminates at the end of September. I’m still not certain where my path will lead me or what [...]

From Clutter to Clarity

I admit that I have been a little funky and scattered as of late. There are a few things going on in my life that I am trying to get a handle and the proper perspective on. I have been fighting a cold and respiratory thing now for a little bit which is more annoying than anything else at this point. It did force me to walk about 75% of the NYC marathon last weekend which was a little disappointing. But I quickly remembered that a finish is all that mattered and our team, Grassroot Soccer raised close to $150,000 for AIDS/HIV education through the GRS program. That’s a big win. Even though it ended up being a walk, it was a great and memorable weekend.
