Running 30 miles
In late August, Pam successfully ran her first ultra-marathon, a 50 kilometer (30-mile) race through steep terrain through Redwood Park in Oakland. This was my second 30 miler. Our time was 6 hours, 33 minutes.
After a 30-year career in banking, I'm now an English teacher at Las Positas College in Livermore, CA. My love of education prompted me to serve as an elected school board trustee and to earn my doctorate in Educational Leadership from Saint Mary's College. My dissertation is associated with two semester-long studies I conducted with student veterans about the benefits of writing about military experience.
For many years I wrote a human interest column for the Bay Area News Group, and this blog is where I posted many of my favorite columns.
