Yeah, take highway down the Kenai Peninsula. Was there two years ago, made it to Seward. This was a trip in April, so the roads were iced/snowed over. White-knuckled the steering wheel for two...
Higher education administrator. My job is to retain/graduate students (primarily students who have exhibited academically at-risk behavior). Love the job, especially as someone who barely graduated...
Had two family members hung by southern sympathizers in Arkansas. Probably for good reason though, they were acquiring resources for the Union
I"m not opposed to students taking a year off after high school before they start their college career. It's a lot to ask a student to have it all figured out at 18 years old. There's a reason why...
Haven't watched the segment yet, but can say I know the Athletic Academic Advising folks at Memphis and they are top notch. They have a difficult job and i think they do it well. Wish i could say...
I interviewed for a job there once. All the "Ts" were missing from signs around campus.
That's a damn fine year.
50,000 crunches, 5000 pushups, run 500 miles.
It's kind of like when rednecks win the lottery. All they do is just go out and buy a bunch of stupid shit and end up bankrupt. OSU isn't historically known for being successful in football...
that was Gordon Gee, their former president
Memphis has won one game (Ark State) this year. Team looks much better defensively and rather inept offensively. Larry Porter left him with very little
Quenton Chaney never materialized into a productive WR because coaches had him playing LB all the time. Chaney to LB!!
Walked out of my house in Ada, OK (moved there after the USAO days) to go to work at Eduardos. Elderly neighbor came out and told me about the planes. Went to work and watched the coverage all day,...
Memphis folks are pretty notorious for hustlin (as well as other things). Everyone has a hustle here, so if you've heard one "i need $5 to get to Nashville" story, then you've heard them all. Was...
Today i was able to run the longest (11 miles) since i ran the St. Jude Marathon, no knee pain whatsoever.
PLease don't remove the Fanfare.
i've canoed 200 miles of the Mississippi River in a wooden canoe
Was an exchange student in Japan
Was homecoming king in high school and college
Time to start printing t-shirts
Mississippi State-only cause i married a grad
Memphis - cause they pay the bills
Just saw this on CNN.com. Guy running barefoot from Canada to southern tip of South America. PLans to run 2.5 hours a day or 15.5 miles twice a day, whichever comes first. His longest training run...
Canoe the entire Mississippi River-source to sea
Hike the entire App Trail
I'd echo the taking a rest advice. My injury was because of overuse. At the end of your training, you are doing some major miles (close to 40 in a week). Next time i train for a marathon, i'll...
ONly change i would make is:
Blanchard to Chickasha to Cement to Cyril to Fletcher to Elgin...you can then jump on i44 and pay .25 or enter the mountains near Meers
Stick with it Namloot. Did my first full back in December. Yesterday i ran 10 miles which is the longest i've run since the marathon (i did some damage to my knee during the race). It felt great...
.08...Lurker status confirmed
Hated it when Dyers moved their Summer Ave location out east. Can't beat a Hueys burger though
Full Body Burden: Growing up in the Nuclear Shadow of Rocky Flats. Excellent book, just finished reading it.
I'm starting The Warmth of Other Suns. It won a Pulitzer Prize
Where to start,
Did a little boxing to make money as an amateur. One night had a big fight that was on the fix, decided to give it my all, ain't gonna throw a fight no matter how much money is...
Still, someone tells you to drop a weapon you don't just stand there slack-jawed, ya drop it and comply. Judging from the pic above the finger is so close to the trigger that anyone in a similar...
I can't believe this conversation on the "rightness or wrongness" of Carl's decision has lasted this long. Allow me to add to the nonsense.
Ol boy was told to put the gun down twice. In a...
The World Until Yesterday -Jared Diamond (he wrote the Pulitzer Prize winner, Guns, Germs, & Steel)
Empire of the Summer Moon- SC Gwynne (book on Quanah Parker and the Commanche, most...
Great Kaiser Sose reference!
Ole Miss Women > ardmore skanks
There are a TON of ISU fans here in Memphis. They really represented their school well. I went to the Liberty Bowl parade yesterday and it was probably a 40 to 1 ration of ISU to Tulsa fans
This made me laugh
We'll take it...http://i.imgur.com/Mlpfb.gif
Soonerbornsoonerbret has this one wrapped up. Very well done.
Had a VP of student affairs that was a real prick while i was a student. Busting everyones balls about stuff that didn't matter. ...
Sixbean, come check out the St Jude Memphis Marathon next december. It was done very well. Of course, who can beat Vegas?
Started using one a few days before the marathon...should have started three weeks earlier. I've used it every night since then and the knee pain is almost gone, almost.
This was me after the marathon (minus the bleeding nipples)
Shooting for another, the Mississippi River Marathon, in February if my IT band agrees with me (and today it doesn't)
Just completed the St. Jude Marathon in Memphis this weekend. I won't ever do that again. The race was awesome, but knee pain from mile 8 to the end.
I have ties to the Univ of Memphis. Imagine the rollercoaster they've been on recently. After losing conference rivals Louisville/Cincy (and others) to the Big East, Memphis struggled for years to...
Lived here for seven years, had opportunities to leave. The blues got a hold on me. Love it here!
Preach it brother. Memphis is awesome.
USAO, I think i know where this pic was taken...Lincoln Alumni Hall or the old Bentons?
Started running a year and a half ago. Did it to get in shape, do it now because it's cathartic. Some of my best thinking happens on my run. Training now for the St Jude Marathon in December using...
My favorite. Tech's was good also
I worked on on my doctorate while working full time and had a family.
Seriously though, i took up working out as a stress reliever. It will all be worth it once its over. A doctoral program is...
