Other interests

My outside interests include running, hiking, biking, kayaking, reading, ethnic food, cooking, good coffee, music, soccer, and above all baseball.

I have run the Pittsburgh Great Race (10K) several times. Also, I ran the Pittsburgh Marathon 4 times and the Pittsburgh Hal-Marathon once. I continue to run daily, around noon time. There is a groups of old farts which get together and run around the different neigborhoods (Squirell Hill, Shadyside, Oakland, and Schenley Park).

My dog's name is Dobie. Unfortunetly, she is not longer with us. She was a very smart, cute loving dog (half airedale and half doberman). Above all, she was an excellent companion and a good listerner.
