The Graduate

IMG_3242Very happy to have my oldest get through his middle school graduation.  He is such a nice kid and so smart.  Adults frequently tell me how kind and caring he is, and they are correct.

I know as parents we all want to hear nice things about our kids, and certainly the world is full of insincere praise.  However, when you constantly hear nice things with the same words used again and again “kind” “considerate” “caring”; and you combine it with the top science grade and top social studies grade and generally overall good grades; throw in some outside leadership activities, and I’m pretty lucky.

Living in the Hudson Valley of New York State, at age 40 (almost 41), I had a health scare and had to make serious changes in my eating and exercise habits. This is the story of how, I went from Morbidly Obese to being a Marathon Runner and ran 12 marathons in 12 months. After I ran several more, I did something I never imagined possible: I am an Ironman.
