Running, Golfing, Lawyering

Posted Sunday, April 10, 2011, at 12:30 AM

I figure my first tweet or post or blog should be about something I like. Running, Golfing, Lawyering. These are a few of my favorite things.

The clubs have not yet been out of the bag this season but I hear them calling. I opted to watch the Masters today and then ran from the country club to the aquatic center and back. The trails are no longer submerged.

Runners, remember to run or walk on the LEFT, facing traffic. And if you go before sunrise or after sunset, remember to wear light/reflective clothing. Drivers, we runners do not do these things to make better targets for you, but rather so that we may miss each other. Please give us plenty of room. And let's all have our dogs under control, OK? That means on a leash whenever the dog is not on Fido's property.

The Masters is looking like a battle between old and young. Fred Couples v. Rory McIlroy. Both would look good in a green jacket.

Next....my heroes have always been lawyers......
