One Moment In Time

One Moment In Time

It was a hot day this morning.  I woke up and started my 17 mile run the usual route in Fort Lauderdale way before the sun showed it’s face.  I was feeling great, but the temperature was hot in 70′s (but it felt like 100 degrees) and everything seem to be at a stand still. (…)

Running On The WIngs Of The WInd

Running On The WIngs Of The WInd

A couple of weeks ago I was training with my TNT group and we ran 14 miles that tested my endurance, and my spirit.  We started off running on 17th Avenue and headed towards Las Olas Blvd and over the bridge circling what we call the ‘Idlewyld Loop’ and back over that bridge towards Oakland(…)

Comes Love…Nothing Can Be Done!

Comes Love…Nothing Can Be Done!

Hooked!  Bewitched, bothered, and bewildered, like Ella Fitzgerald said in one songs, and in another, “I got it bad (And that ain’t good).” This is exactly how I feel right now– waking  up everyday to running.  Focused and feeling good.  This is what happens when love comes.  It does not come easy though.  You have(…)

Is There A Doctor In The House?

Is There A Doctor In The House?

I know that skinny is no indication that one is healthy. No Sir! But what we know from the CDC is that obesity and being overweight predisposes one to myriads of chronic problems.  Now, I’m not  talking about The Chronic that Dr. Dre and that “Slim Shady” rapper artist, Eminem, rapped about.  Here is the(…)

Duty Of Love

Duty Of Love

Duty of love makes 71 year old retired school teacher and Olympian Joann Sampson of South Florida say, “I can do that!”  And she did.  This fast, naturally beautiful, and strong woman likes to say that age is nothing but a number, “It’s what’s in your heart that matters.”  That’s what she said in the(…)
