Penn State Football … Only One Regret

Hours ago, the College Football Playoff Committee selected their fearsome foursome — Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State and Washington. And in the hours that have followed, Penn State fanatics literally across the globe took two POVs — “one, we are thrilled with the way this team rose from the ashes of the “Out of Bounds Without The … Continue reading

Is There A Cinderella … Penn State’s Place In The College Football Playoff

If you’re a Penn State fan, you’re excited about everything right now.  Ranked #12 in the AP.  Ranked #14 in the Coaches Poll.  Ranked #10 in tonight’s College Football Playoff.  An emerging Heisman candidate in Saquon Barkley.  Talk of a Rose Bowl or Cotton Bowl bid on New Year’s Day.  Yet to be released, but … Continue reading

Delta. A Little Perspective From Economy Comfort.

Delta.  It’s really the only airline I prefer to fly … domestically.  Yes, grant me access to Air France or Virgin and I won’t complain.  But domestically, out of Atlanta, I’m attached to the hometown favorite for reasons that have little to do with the company being, “Atlanta.”  Yes, it took some weathering of challenges … Continue reading

40,000 Miles. On The Road Again.

40,000 Miles. On The Road Again.

I’ve been gone too long from my blog, 40,000 Miles On Foot, distracted and obsessed by life’s trivialities.  I started three years ago when I re-engineered my physical goals as a human being.  I wanted to run 40,000 miles before I found myself limited to a jog, a trot or worse yet, a walk.  Fortunately, … Continue reading

Start Of Training And A Fitting Farewell

Like everything that requires great effort and commitment, getting started is often the most difficult part.  With racing, I find the ritual of signing up helps.  It makes an indelible impression, maybe in part because I just wrote off $125.  Regardless it works because today I made the commitment to pursue my third 24 hour … Continue reading

A Bolt to Jamaica Doesn’t Amount to Run in with Usain Bolt

While July brings the heat in Jamaica, I couldn’t think of a better place than Round Hill to incorporate some hill training into my regime just weeks before Epic Relay.  Round Hill, made popular by Ian Fleming who penned many of his James Bond classics, balances its national pride today between Bob Marley, the Jamaican … Continue reading

Why the 5K Race Can Be Our Salvation!

Who would argue that the state of America’s health is dismal, bordering on apocalyptic-like statistics that should be nothing less than embarrassing as the world’s supposedly leading culture.  I didn’t say it, but rather sourced too many media, blog and social sites making similar pokes at us.  We’re big and bad in so many ways. … Continue reading

Torrance Tornado … In Person

I’m not one to be star struck … And I have crossed paths with some iconic brand personalities.  Take the Greatest himself, Muhammad Ali.  I was there … Just a pebbles throw away when he carried the Torch during the 1996 Olympic Games and the Closing Ceremonies. It was inspiring and emotional, in part because … Continue reading

Run, Drive, Sleep, Repeat at Ragnar Relay.

Run, Drive, Sleep, Repeat.  Run, Drive, Sleep, Repeat.  It’s part of the lexicon at Ragnar Relay, the overnight running relay series that makes testing your limits a team sport.  That’s the official Ragnar boilerplate and for most of the thousands of participants of a R-A-G-N-A-R, it’s an appropriate sentiment. At the recent Ragnar SoCal, the … Continue reading
