Stand-up, Cornell, Congrats

by agoodnow

Last evening I went to the gym for the first time since the race.  I felt ill at one point.  Not sure what was up with that, but I felt like I was going to be sick.  I got dizzy.  Not good.   Makes me think I should ease back into lifting.   What worries me is that I was lifting light. 

To make things worse, I got home and started seeing spots.  Is that a bad sign? 

I’ll try again today.  Hopefully, today will be a better day.


You know how some days just suck?  Yesterday was that day for me.  It was one of those “I need changes in my life” days.   Overall, things are good, but there is always room for vast improvement.  I’m ready to make such improvements.  Now.  


Go Cornell.  I have Kentucky in my bracket, but would much rather see the kids who are playing the game because they love it  (not because they will be collecting an 8 figure paycheck after playing one year in college)  win.


I really want to do a stand-up comedy act. Just once.  I do not want to tell anyone where or when it is.  Just go to some random hole in the wall comedy club and do it.  I do not care if I completely bomb.  Just want to be able to say that I tried.  


Yesterday a childhood friend (I have been friends with this kid for TWENTY years) had his first child.  It made me think.  I can remember when we were 8 years old running around the North End of  Boston.  What a great place to live, to grow up, to be young.   I think  there was a lot to be said for the community the North End had/has.  You always felt safe, like the people there cared about you.  I have been gone for a long time now, but I certainly hope that has not changed.    I need to get back there at some point this summer. 

There are some people who you just know will make a good parent.  This guy is one of them.  A big congratulations to my friend Marco.  Could not be happier for him.
