Are You Dead?!?

No… I’m just on a dry spell of sorts .  🙂

I haven’t been posting for the last week or so due to a new project I’ve been working on.  The project has consumed all my normal “writing time.”  My other free time has been consumed running around Arizona, New Mexico, and now Texas.

Over the next two weeks, I’ll continue to be quite busy as I finish up the project and head to San Francisco and Buenos Aires for clinics.  I […]

I’ll be asking for your name, email […]

Oct 23, 2010 | One Comment

While in New York participating in the 1st Annual NYC Barefoot Run, I had the opportunity to meet Bob Ewing.  Bob was making a short video for his attempt to run the Marine Corp Marathon next weekend.  He is doing this for two reasons:

First, he’s raising $5000 through Team in Training for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

Second, he’s encouraging people to join the bone marrow registry.

Here’s Bob’s video:

I highly encourage you […]
