BK Bulletin: March 2020 – Coronavirus Edition

Welp…so much for the year and the decade being off to a good start, as I stated at the top of the last update. Less than a month later, we are living in the midst of a global disaster thanks to the novel coronavirus pandemic.

BK Bulletin: January/February 2020 – A half marathon returns to Trenton!

The new year—and decade—is off to a pretty good start, although I would have preferred if I sent this out a couple of weeks ago. The big news is that (fingers crossed), for the first time since 2017, a half-marathon race is going to be run in Trenton, NJ, in 2020. Also, I was able to see two favorite music acts of mine, China Crisis and Midge Ure, at an intimate venue just 15 minutes from my house.

Read on to find out what else has been going on since mid-December… Continue reading “BK Bulletin: January/February 2020 – A half marathon returns to Trenton!”

Help me raise funds for Eagles Autism Challenge in 2020

IMG_0889For a third straight year, I will be taking part in the Eagles Autism Challenge, taking place Saturday, May 16, 2020. This cause is especially important to me as my youngest son, Benjamin, has autism and is nonverbal.

However, I’m switching things up for 2020. After two years of running the 5K at the event, this time I will be riding my bike 10 miles around Philly.

Track me during the 2019 Atlantic City Triathlon

Just wanted to write a quick note here to say that I am competing in the Atlantic City Triathlon (Olympic distance) this Saturday morning (August 10) and you can track my progress in real-time. Even cooler is that thanks to the DelMoSports Elite Events Mobile App (Apple App Store / Google Play) and MyLaps timing technology, you can (supposedly) get a picture sent to you whenever I hit a timing mat.

Once you download and install the app, find the Tri AC event and click on “Live Tracking.” Look me up by name or by bib number (463) and hit “follow” next to my name. The Olympic-distance triathlon (1-mile swim, 22-mile bike ride, 6.2-mile run) is scheduled to start at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday, but I probably won’t be starting my swim until around 7:45/7:50.

If you want to track me without an app (and without the fancy photo feature), it appears you can track me online at http://live.sporthive.com/event/6033/live?

It looks like you will be able to look me up on that site and track me on race day.

I haven’t done an Olympic-distance triathlon since completing this same event in 2014 (see pics above), but a conflict with Miss America weekend that year led to the race being shortened to five miles so this will technically be my first.
