Social Vibe

I'm not techy enough to figure out how to have this as a constant on my page so I figured posting would do....check out this great way to support a cause you care about...the best part, its customizable.

Running isnt for everyone...or is it?

The GORE-TEX (TM) Trans Rockies Run is going on this kicked off on Sunday in Beaver Creek, CO. Its a very cool race that I was certain was only for elite trail runners. I have been proven wrong in that assumption. A running pal of mine, Carl, is making a real go of it out there in the Rockies, taking the altitude in stride and keeping his eye on the finish line. Yesterday he completed a 24 miler in 7.5 hours. Today brings another 14 followed by the last two days at 23 miles and 21 miles. ALL IN THE MOUNTAINS!! He's pictured here with his running partner (the race is done in teams) Follow his run and the TRR fun here on the GORE-TEX (TM)TRR website.

I just returned from a stay in Detroit and just had to mention the Hyatt Place. I was very impressed. It was not what I was expecting in Motor City or in a Hyatt for that matter. The image and decor was fresh and I especially enjoyed the flatscreen TV that had no business being that big. Rumor was the concert buses in the parking lot were none other than Miss Dolly Partons. Bonus.

We also had a great nite at the Tigers game...athough I was reminded of home (Philly) when the fans started leaving in the 6th inning.

Who doesnt love Wayne Newton?

I got an email from my uncle today with a great attachment....a picture of my 85 year old grandmom with Wayne Newton in Vegas! I love it! How awesome that she is rocking it out in Vegas....what an inspiration.
