Last Friday marked ten years since the LIU Post (then C.W. Post) Class of 2004 commencement ceremony.

I was honored to be part of that ceremony:

It was a whirlwind morning and early afternoon.  My sleep pattern (and eating pattern) was screwed up at the time and I was unable to sleep the night before the ceremony.  But it was still a thrill.  I was excited to hear my name called, but a bit too excited.  That’s why I didn’t share the other pics that my father took of me at that moment.

After late lunch at Domenico’s in Levittown, my parents, sister, and I headed home where I promptly went to bed.

I haven’t strayed too far from the LIU Post campus since the ceremony, returning often to visit faculty and attend WCWP events.  I also had a couple of regular on-air stints at WCWP in addition to my time at the station as an undergrad.

One year with Nike Running iPhone app May 13, 2014

Today marks one year since I first used the Nike Running app on my iPhone 5.  My first run was 2.91 miles outdoors.  Since then, I’ve run as far as 5.74 miles indoors, and that was just last week.  So far this month, I’ve run more miles than I did in the rest of May last year.

By a month and a half after I started using the app, I had lost five pounds.  Unfortunately, I gained it back in the two months that followed, due in part to junk food indulgence and less running (due to high heat and humidity).  Since then, I’ve run farther and more often each month, and I’ve had more days of healthy eating.  As a result, I’ve lost 20 pounds.
