One Step at a Time

I have a number of runners in my family.  My kids run cross country and track, my wife is a regular runner and my brother runs ultra-distances.  My run is more of a jog and a majority of my “training” is probably spent walking, but I do enjoy the challenge of training, the encouragement from (slight) improvements and the exhilaration of the race.  I also see a lot of comparisons between the sport of running and the challenges that we face in our careers.

Update: Driver License Application in California

The California Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) has implemented a new policy requiring formal appointments for all first-time driver license applicants.
