Track Reunion: Going Back to Say Thanks

Oct 20th, 2008 | By | Category: Adventure

Me & Coach Craig Originally uploaded by dr.coop This past weekend I drove to Bakersfield, CA for my college Track & Field and Cross Country reunion.

Video Chat with TokBox Originally uploaded by dr.coop Last Friday I was traveling, so I was going to miss this month’s CyberSalon at Buffalo Wild Wings in Mesa, AZ. I hadn’t missed a gathering yet, so I was just a little bummed I may be missing this one. But instead of missing, I fired up […]
