“These days, tennis is the best workout, and the most fun when I play with people who are competitive and better than me. I have a hard time surrendering, so I don’t quit until it’s over. By then, win or lose, I think, “What a great way to spend the day.”

*Play tennis with someone who is better than you. Do not quit until it’s over.

BONUS: Leila Lopes 1986 – “I’m not a “gym person” so when I have a competition or a photo shoot I just eat less. I don’t diet or stop eating because I love eating and I eat everything.”

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
