I’ve become a four-trick pony.
Although I reserve the right to write about anything, topics typically center around raising a child with autism, OCR (obstacle course racing), golf, and, of course, politics – in which everyone is somehow an expert. Especially me.

I ain’t changed, but I know I ain’t the same.

The 2020 Arizona Spartan Sprint
This past Sunday, I completed my 11th Spartan Race. Every race – from Spartan to Rugged Maniac – seems to have a story to tell; memories that stay with you forever. You always remember your first. Then there was the time I sort of shadowed a special needs adult with this family. Last year I…
