Bob Dylan

November 6, 2010


Alive and still kicking, his concert in Columbus this week was really good. A nice mix of older and newer songs. Bob even bopped around a bit and he seemed to be enjoying himself. The first time I saw Bob Dylan, around 15 years ago, he barely moved around at all and looked to be […]

2010 Columbus Marathon

October 19, 2010


This weekend I volunteered at the Columbus Marathon. Attracting 15,000 runners, this is one of the largest marathons in the country.

Columbus Marathon

October 22, 2009


Running a marathon seems like an impossible idea to me. I have always hated running, much preferring the low impact exercise of a bike. It is easy to envy the long lean bodies that runners work so hard to achieve. Runners seem a little crazy to me, this past weekend that was confirmed. On Sunday […]
