World Cup.  #futbol hooligans....enuff said.  Reminds me of a discussion years ago, what athletes have the best cardio?  Let’s discuss as I am Event Announcer for all of these so I would like to see your input.  Not fittest athlete but best cardio....#Runner, #cyclist, #swimmer, #gymnastics, #soccer, #drumcorps, #cheer, #triathlete, #volleyball, etc etc etc. (Who has the best Vo2 volumes?).
Kicking off my running season with a 4 day mini-camp this weekend!  Miles of running, getting the ol’ legs back under me as I begin training for my next #ultramarathon.  Just the country road of Waller, TX and me.....and the ranch hands.  Good times!  #marathonmaniac #plantbasedathlete

Before I head off for my annual 4 day running camp this weekend, I have a few orders to fulfill such as this planter.  Maybe make a few for my yard projects.  I do other things for people besides talk on a mic all the time. :)

On the Mic tomorrow morning for the Fathers Day run in San Antonio.  My Dad is putting it on...perhaps his 5,000 event he has ever put on since he started in 1981.  So Happy Fathers Day Dad and to all of the step-dads raising them as their own.

Excited as I will be bringing the “Marathons and more” Podcast and Webstream Show back next week.  Race reports from those that were there and what’s on the horizon; team reports and weekly training groups rides or runs.  I would like to thank all those that have supported us for the past 4 years as I love what we do for the athletic community.

I am obsessed with our back yard.  Laid 20 bags of mulch, re-vamped the Koi pond and about to build another deck for the grill area with lights; another water feature in another part of the yard and a new water hose holder.  Now I have neighbors wanting me to do their stuff. #ryobipowertools #diyyardwork

If I am not running, and if you need me, this is pretty much where I will be this summer.  Kids time, play time.
