If it runs like a duck…

I stepped outside yesterday and was greeted by the first rays of sunlight, a beautiful sky and crisp morning air. I said it was going to be a great day for a run. Down on the riverfront, a frigid breeze chilled me to the bones.

A season of transitions

Change is in the air. There is no denying it. Here in north Louisiana, the temperatures and humidity have slipped out of the triple digits and settled in the 90s. And if you put your ear to the ground, that sound you will hear is

Get off that treadmill and into the game

Published on June 27, 2013 in Featured, Life, Love, Running

The treadmill sits in the corner these days, collecting more dust than it does miles. When I first started running, that ol’ treadmill felt like my best friend. I was 39 years old. I had done a few things in my life, but running never

A Brave new world

Published on June 8, 2013 in Baseball, Featured, Life

Thursday night officially goes down as a rainout — a rather unceremonious ending to a quite glorious season for the Shreveport Dixie Youth T-Ball Braves. The team finished the regular season with a record of 10-3. I’m not sure a single player on the team

Simple things matter most

What a week! It has been an incredible week for all of us. First, of course, there has been the tragedy at the Boston Marathon and its aftermath. The whole world has spent the week asking “Why?”, and we all deserve an answer. I hope

Tragedy in Boston

Published on April 15, 2013 in Featured, Running

I have seen the footage from the finish line at the Boston Marathon today. It just makes me sick. The Boston Marathon is the pinnacle for marathoners. It’s the elite of the elite. The best of the best. There were first-time qualifiers and repeat runners

It’s not just a game

I wouldn’t call myself a poet. It’s just not the kind of storytelling I like. But I was inspired to sit down and write this haiku. I call it “T-Ball Practice”: Green grass and good friends, Hit, run, catch, throw, run again. Don’t pick the

It’s About Time

Published on March 13, 2013 in Featured, Life

I got a package in the mail today. It felt like I was waiting for a month of Sundays. But that’s probably just because of my enthusiasm. You see, this is more than just a package, it’s a whole new way to look at time.
