Return of the April Detox

With SXSW behind me and the Bronx Zoo 5K ahead of me again, I felt it was time to realign myself. The need to get myself back on track to where I was months ago inspired me to return to the idea I had a year ago, when I did my April Detox. So for the second year in a row, I will focus on my health.

Closing a chapter

Sometimes in life, you must realize that the party has to end. It’s time to turn up the chairs and let the last one out turn off the lights. Eras must come to their conclusions and let history judge them for what they were.

Recap: The Walt Disney World Half Marathon

In February 2010, a fateful brunch occurred where I was challenged to train to run the Bronx Zoo Run for the Wild 5K. Not only did I successfully do it, but I continued training beyond it. Although I only ran one other 5K last year at Yankee Stadium, I trained beyond the 3 mile race and drove myself to prepare for the annual Walt Disney World Half Marathon.

I Am Running The Walt Disney World Half Marathon

I am currently sitting in the Sunshine State, counting down the hours to my longest run to date. This Saturday, January 8, 2011, I will be running the Walt Disney World Half Marathon in Orlando, Florida, where I will be joining thousands of others in running through the Disney parks in an effort to run 13.1 miles.

Have A Happy New Year

As the clock ticks down the final hours of 2010, and the champagne chills in anticipation of midnight revelry, the year dwindles to a close. I want to wish all my friends, family, and everyone else reading this site a very happy and healthy new year.

A Return to the Sears Automotive Debacle

A couple weeks ago, I took my car to Sears Automotive for an oil change. As soon as I left Sears, the car began leaking, something it hadn’t been the night before. Through tribulations outlined previously, I just wanted to have a fully working car again, which itself became an extended process.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving

As I continue to blog twice a week, I realize that no matter what I write, it will mostly go unread in the second half of this week due to the Thanksgiving holiday, so I thought I would just wish everyone a happy, healthy Thanksgiving filled with friends, family and lots of food! And let’s not forget the leftovers the next day.

Sears Automotive Messed Up My Car. Again.

After the adventures of the Dude, My Car trilogy, I thought it might be a good idea to do some maintenance on it. An oil change and car wash seemed to be the order of the day. Unfortunately, it was my choice of vendors was not quite on the same par as the thought itself.

I Will Be Speaking at Meat and Tweet on Monday

This coming Monday, November 8, 2010 at 6pm, I will be speaking at the Meat and Tweet networking event at Morton’s Steakhouse in White Plains. I will be talking about Social Media for Small Business, where I will be telling people about how to use things like Facebook and Twitter to promote their businesses.

Dude, I Found My Car

First, the car was lost, then the car consumed my week, and just as I was ready to accept the loss and move on, I received a phone call changing everything. As of noon today, my car was in a New York City tow lot, and as of five pm, back in my possession.
