When he realized his mistake (which was great, because I was confused as hell), he apologized, which wasn’t necessary, and then said that my time would come…I asked if that was a threat and he laughed.

The winner of the May 2016 Warrior of the Month is a familiar one. With a total of 173.6 miles on the various Selden Hills courses is our 4 time WOTM winner KC Brett. Congratulations!! It never ceases to amaze me on the number of miles KC and several others compile each month. What doesn’t kill you makes you stronger was never more appropriate!!

Thank you Lou for thinking of and allowing me to share my story. My life has been quite a journey and filled with many an experience. I have some big shoes to fill this week.
My story begins as I’m reading a book about the Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan in our basement in mid May 2010. The phone rings and I hear my wife, Cathy, speaking to someone. Cathy walks downstairs and conveys that it’s Dr. Bilfinger, Chief of Cardiothoracic Surgery of Stony Brook University Hospital. I say hello and he says that he has good news in that I have Hodgkins Lymphoma. Continue Reading →
