I am asking for some help. OK, it’s a big favor to ask. But maybe there is someone that can assist in making this come true for me. It has finally hit me that I did not finish the 2010 Chicago Marathon. Maybe it was seeing all of the people at the airport on their […]

OK, it’s tough, but I will say it. I had to drop out of the Chicago Marathon after 21 miles due to severe cramping. I tried everything I could to keep moving, but in the end I felt that covering the last five miles in the 80 plus degree weather could have been very dangerous […]
Dear Friends and Readers, I arrived in Chicago yesterday morning and I have been doing all of the things I love to do in one of my favorites cities on the planet! Breakfast at The West Egg this morning with Evan, Keria, Stephen, Yoko, Bernie and Jessie was amazing as usual. Everyone is excited about […]
Yes, according to my calendar and watch I have about four days and ten hours before the starting gun sounds at the beginning of the Chicago Marathon. Am I ready? Yes, I am ready to finish! To complete the marathon, one needs a combination of physical and mental readiness. I think my body is ready […]
I have just completed ironing words on the shirt I will be wearing in the Chicago Marathon this Sunday. The front simply says “DAVE.” That’s so as I run, every spectator on the 26.2 mile course will see my name and yell “GO DAVE!” This will hopefully give me the energy I will need to […]

It was so nice meeting so many cool people along the way. I am still working on getting my book started. I have been just so darn busy since […]
Yes, I did it! I hiked rim to rim to rim in the Grand Canyon successfully. That is me in the above picture – the tall guy, second from the right. It took six days and five nights backpacking and sleeping outside in campsites along the way. This was one of the coolest things I […]
I will be embarking on my six day hike into the Grand Canyon tomorrow morning so I will be out of touch until after that. I hope you all have a very nice week and please continue doing all of the things you need to do to live your healthiest lifestyle!
Leaving today for my six day rim to rim to rim backpack trip in the Grand Canyon. My plane leaves in about four hours for Phoenix. My team and I are ready. Yoko, Larry, Lew and I are leaving from Baltimore. Landi is leaving from Detroit and we will all meet up in Phoenix. From […]
