Running and Leadership

If you asked me when I was a kid if I liked to run I would have said no way! To make a long story short, I have since fallen in love with running. This past May, I was blessed to finish the Chase Corporate Challenge in 22:15, a personal record. However, I did not run the race to achieve a personal best, I ran it in memory of my grandpa.

Beach Body

I’ve finally worked up the nerve to take my daughter on an airplane and we’re going on a trip to Los Angeles this week to visit family. After I got over the initial fear of dealing with a toddler in the sky and stopped freaking out over what I needed to pack, I began to accept that this may be a pretty great trip.

Make the World Dance

A very wise president, Kid President, once said, “It’s everyone’s duty to give the world a reason to dance.”

Faded Pictures

There were so many memories in that box. I couldn’t help but wonder if future generations will be missing out on the joy of thumbing through printed photos.
