Biography

I need to lose 14 Pounds and 10 years to run a 3 hour marathon ... but that won't keep me from trying. I'm also breaking into personal training. My credentials? I've coached at the recreation department and YMCA levels. I finished 321st in the 2008 LA Marathon and have run about a dozen others. Not exactly Olympic material. But since I'm a writer by trade and crack myself up after I hit the wall and think about what I could have done differently, I thought I'd share some marathoning thoughts in the hopes that you'll get a grin when you hit the wall. Or maybe I'll even help you avoid hitting the wall, and you'll REALLY have a grin on your face.
