Move A Million Miles for Ryan Hall

Big Bear’s Lighthouse Project has launched a community spirit initiative, “Move A Million Miles for Ryan Hall,” which challenges the community surrounding Big Bear Lake, California to get up and out, and “move a million miles” between now and Big-Bear-Native Ryan Hall’s August 24 marathon race date in Beijing, China during the 2008 Summer Olympic games. I’ve been helping out with the campaign, and even had a chance to meet and run with Ryan and his wife Sara. Support the campaign and report your miles here.

Okay, Momma, Okay.

For longer than I care to remember, several friends and family members have encouraged (if not harassed) me to write. I’d share the challenges of running a hospitality business, in employer-friendly California, and they’s say, “Why don’t you write?” I’d recount the antics of our crazy and/or famous Lodge guests, and they’d say, “Oh, you should be writing this stuff.” I’d talk about living at high altitude in the snowy mountains with 2 teens and (what sometimes seems like but really isn’t) 2 wives, and they’d say “Write it down!”

Okay, okay. Enough already. But as they say, be careful what you wish for.
