Track

Julia is more like her Dad. I ran and swam in high school. So did Julia. I gave up swimming (no team) in college and continued to run. So did Julia. I won the low hurdles in the Manhattan borough championship and it was mentioned in the New York Times. I was pretty full of myself until the NYC championships when the 9 foot tall kids from Boys and Girls High in Brooklyn beat me like I was walking. Julia had great success in the high school track championships and brought home trophies and the championship for the school. She was part of a core of successful team members and there’s a banner to commemorate the championship hanging in the school gym. Yeah, this is one proud papa.
