Sorry I have not checked in for a few days-- work has been a little crazy. The news biz is "abuzz" with the Swine Flu coverage, are you scared yet?????
I know some say we are over-doing it and maybe we are-- but at least we're getting the word out-- plus everyone is freaked out so hopefully we're getting good information out there for the masses to digest and stay healthy. The big message: wash your hands :)
I also SOLD my condo in Florida-- the condo I have been trying to sell for nearly 2 years!!!!! I signed all the paperwork yesterday and its a done deal! The market is a disaster in my former location (Ft. Myers). I won't tell you how much I lost on the deal (can we say I'm shirtless:) but it's better than paying a mortgage and association fees every month!
Alright-- now for the REAL reason I write this blog. Despite the hectic schedule-- I've been able to hit the pavement and I actually stepped up the running quite a bit.
Sunday: 4 Miles Monday: 4 Miles Tuesday: off, weight training Wednesday: 7.5 Miles Thursday: 7.5 Miles Friday: planned easy 3Miles Saturday: Louis Billitier 5k, Downtown Buffalo Sunday: 5 Miles
If you notice-- I ran 7.5 miles Weds. and today-- two long distances in two days and I feel great! The soreness I was experiencing after the hilly 5K over the weekend has gone away thanks to Melanie and her advice to "skip" backwards after each run. I finally figured it out and although I get a few looks from people at the park it has helped tremendously!
I am a down to earth, kind, fun and active fellow. I am a news anchor for the ABC affiliate in Buffalo, NY. I put friends and family before anything else-- and measure success by my level of happiness.

Not too long ago-- I was a cigarette smoking out of shape fella. I kicked the smoking habit and picked up running. I'm now addicted! If you're a runner- or want to be-- welcome! Lets learn together. I want to hear your ideas and I want to share mine.
