I don’t typically follow Inktober’s prompt list, but I thought Byron Buxton fit ‘SWIFT’ quite well. Minnesota’s star center fielder is currently one of MLB’s fastest players – according to StatCast™. With speed like that, Bux makes fielding fly balls and line drives look about as effortless as shoe-tying. Offensively, he’s sitting pretty with 28 stolen bases, having only been caught once.
Today I joined hundreds of runners who laced up and hit the trail for the annual Kroll’s Diner Bismarck Marathon. I can’t say that I have a lot of experience as a competitive runner, but truly enjoy the challenge, discipline and preparation required to do a road race. Thanks to the advice and encouragement from my friends, family and many of my veteran running mentors I was able to complete my second half marathon this year (without dying). Congrats to all you runners out there who did the ‘Krolls’ today!
