    Authors I have and enjoy: both fiction and non fiction. Crichton, Tolkien, Peter F. Drucker (business books), I have read and enjoyed a number of Grisham novels over the years but not necessarily dedicated to him (or any other for that matter), Eli Goldratt (The Goal), I have several books on running – both on training, a couple of novels (Once a Runner and Again to Carthage, both by John L. Parker Jr),and others. Several biographies (Mickey Mantle, Lance Armstrong (both of them), Dean Karnazes, “Hot” Rod Hundley, Rick Majerus, Larry H. Miller among others)

    I understand the shy thing, although once I get to know a person a little then I open up some.

    Morning person? Never considered myself one. Yet the funny thing is, I prefer running early morning. A lot of that has to do with wanting to make sure I get it done so it doesn’t get blown off. My alarm goes off at 4 am. I try to get my run started no later than 5 am. Especially while in marathon training. Those 10+ mile mid week runs can be brutal.

    I met my wife 29 years ago last month. We were engaged after one week. Yes you read that right. One WEEK.

    Of course we didn’t tell our parents for another 3.5 weeks. I met her family Easter weekend 1982, we got married in September of that year. This weekend was the 30th time I have done Easter with her family out of 30 opportunities.
