Speed and Running Development with the track and field jumpers at Bellarmine & Notre Dame (San Jose)

A few months ago I was contacted for a great opportunity to teach running mechanics and speed development at Bellarmine High School in San Jose, CA. Bellarmine High School is a storied academic institution and a powerhouse athletic program in San Jose and the C.C.S (Central Coast Section) with many championships and accolades.

Hiking in Acadia National Park

About a week ago we have the opportunity to visit our son Kieran who was interning in Bath, Maine this summer. We were able to climb, I say climb because hiking would not be the word, as there were no switch backs Cadillac Mt. in Acadia National Park. We had a great day with Kieran and a marvelous day to hike. We visited 6 different cities in Maine, each one more beautiful than the next! PLEASE go out and enjoy what nature has to offer. Nothing invigorates you more!  If you missed the early summer posts on various benefits of exercising outdoors, please scroll down and take a peak.
