My Radio Interview
On the off chance that on the morning of your July 4th holiday, you didn’t spring out of bed at 7:30 a.m. to dutifully listen to the live webcast of my radio interview on the 98.1 WOCM Ocean City’s Rude Awakening morning show, you can now relive the moment! Just click the play button below to hear it; the entire interview is about seven minutes long. I must admit I’m a bit of an east-coast fast-talker, but I even though I was a little nervous, I managed to avoid the dreaded shaky voice!
Thanks to Blaine Moore from Run To Win for helping me figure out how to magically get audio from my computer onto my blog.
There are two races, both benefitting good causes, that I’d like to mention here. The first is the NYC Half Marathon on August 16th, for which general registration is closed. But you can still get guaranteed entry by participating in the Fresh Air Fund-Racers program, which benefits inner city children by giving them a chance to get out of the city and into the fresh air to enjoy all kinds of outdoor activities like swimming and hiking trips. In addition to runners and sponsors, they’re still looking for host families to provide the kids with a place to stay during their summer vacations. If you live in the area and would like to host, or are just interested in running and fund raising, please consider this opportunity to do something special for an inner city child!
The second race is the 3rd Annual Recovery Race 5K Run and 2-Mile Walk in McHenry, Maryland on September 12th. The race is to celebrate the efforts of those courageous people who are recovering from an addiction, and all proceeds benefit the Garrett County STEPS to Better Health Committee. Western Maryland is a beautiful area and I’m sure this course in the mountains is no exception.
