Most memorable athletic achievement:
My marathon PR is from the 2009 Chicago Marathon.  I was volunteer coaching at La Salle U in Philly and training with the guys and knew I was fit.  I did a 4 mile tempo the Wednesday before the race and my splits were all over the place.  Come race day, I ran every 5k split of the marathon (42.2K) within 15secs of eachother.

Not sure it is my favorite, but I have never watched a movie more times than I have watched The Big Lebowski.

Favorite Quote:
There are going to be times when we can't wait for somebody. Now, you're either on the bus or off the bus. If you're on the bus, and you get left behind, then you'll find it again. If you're off the bus in the first place — then it won't make a damn.
As quoted by Tom Wolfe in The Electric Kool-Aid Acid Test (1968)
