Wear the Shoes You Want

This is about running shoes. (But only if you think it is.)

I was knocking out a quick lunchtime walk and simultaneously returning phone calls. On one call, I was asked about my adventures walking across countries. 

The ALL-TIME Greatest Class

I was sitting in the waiting room hoping that my name would be called soon.

Three Very, VERY Awesome Gifts...For You

It's the season of gifts.  And I have three for you.

One Villain...and Seventeen Heroes


The imaginary ones go by the names of Doctor Doom, Professor Moriarty, Darth Vader, Captain Hook, Wicked Witch of the West, Cruela de Vil and Voldemort.

There are plenty of real ones, too.

How To Start A Bandwagon

In a big, BIG, B-I-G's sometimes easy to wonder:

"Can my small voice make a difference?" 

Mind, Heart, Legs...and Adventures

After a crazy 48-hour "Amazing Race" real-life adventure...I made it onboard.

There's an expression: "when the wheels fall off."

Roughly means something is falling apart.
