Make Every Day A Skin Cancer Awareness Day

On this last day of Skin Cancer Awareness Month, I’m reminding myself and my readers to make every day a day in which you’re aware of any changes on your skin, no matter how small they seem to be.

This first appeared on Deb Runs on Christmas Eve 2013. I hope you enjoy…   Just for fun, I’m going to take you on a quick tour of our main Christmas tree.  I suppose you could say there are a few themes going on here and of course running is one of the big ones!   I […]

When The Brooklyn Dodgers Recruited My Dad

What better day than the opening day of baseball to honor my dad, and brag about his baseball accomplishments!  Dad would never have told you these things, but if you started asking questions, he would have told you some great baseball stories.  Asking Dad’s friends about his baseball accomplishments; however, opened a floodgate of stories […]

One Year Later, And Missing My Dad

A year ago today I lost my dad, and at times it feels like it was forever ago, and at other times it seems like just yesterday that I was laughing at his corny jokes, giving him fitness advice, and talking Monday morning quarterback with him.
