I have the honor of helping out the Metro area Special Olympics tennis team for various events and clinics throughout the year. Recently, I was helping out with a tennis clinic and had the pleasure of having my son join me. Seeing him interact with the participants made me think about the importance of our children learning how to give back to our community.
As I drove past Ardrey Kell High School, I had to do a double take at what was painted on the school's rock. Suddenly, a big smile came over my face as I glanced at it again. COEXIST. Yep, I read it right. Someone gets it!
One of the most important activities in my life is running. There's nothing like it for me. Just as soon as I come out of the starting gate and my feet hit the ground, I go into my zone. It gets my heart to pumping and the adrenaline kicking. There are no record breaking times or speeds here. FloJo and Marion Jones I am not. I'm a very SLOW runner as I tend to go into my own world and get distracted easily taking in the scenery.
