Connecticut Law Trib Profile

Here is a link to my profile from a few weeks ago in the Connecticut Law Tribune.  Very happy with how it came out and honored to be recognized in a great paper. 

Here I am, finishing the ING Hartford HALF marathon a few weeks ago - I’m the guy in the yellow hat behind the tall guy in the red shirt.  My actual time was 2:01 - slow, but I finished. 

Next up: 26.2.

This Is Heartwarming, You Should Watch It of the Day: 22-year-old Arkansawyer Ben Davis was dozens of pounds overweight and severely depressed. Then, one day, he started running, and didn’t stop until he was 120 pounds lighter.

This is his inspirational story.

Great way to start the year…

running the Frosty 5K:

52   Jeffrey Brohel  40M M4049 22:13 7:09  17/83 20

For the record, my personal goals for 2010 are to run a 10K, and finish a 5K in less than 21 mins.  Would also like to compete in a mini-triathlon, if I can find a bike I like this year maybe I’ll do it, we’ll see…

Here’s hoping your 2010 gets off to a better start than Jon’s…
Happy New Year.

Obama continues to struggle with leadership…

President Obama is taking heavy criticism for his bizarre actions, and those of other members of his administration, following the attempted terrorist attack on a Northwest Airlines flight several days ago, this from the New York Daily News:

The attempt to blow Northwest Flight 253 out of the air was planned as an attack on the United States and very nearly succeeded in accomplishing that horrific goal. The moment demanded inspiring, decisive presidential leadership.

America waited four days for a glimmer.

President Obama’s initial response Monday was too long in coming, too cool in delivery and too removed from the extreme gravity of the plot…

Ultimately, Obama will be measured by a single, unforgiving standard of accountability. It will not be that he affords constitutional rights to terrorists. It will not be that he distinguishes himself by 180 degrees from his predecessor. It will not be that he extends a hand to the Muslim world and refrains from speaking of Islamist terror. It will be whether, on his watch, America suffers a terror attack from abroad, as almost happened on Christmas.

This failure to lead in the days following an attempted terrorist attack on the United States, coupled with his continuing failure to properly address the H1N1 outbreak, could make one wonder about the good judgment of our leader and the people he has picked to assist him.

Just reading a blog that shall remain nameless, and came upon the following exchange:

Those rotary phones look quite fun. I still don’t get how to use them though.

yyy December 29, 2009 at 6:48 pm

put ur finger in the number then scroll it all the way to the (counter clockwise i think) end. Do that for every number… I never see it as that big of a deal, but if u mess up once u gotta hang up and do em all again.

Can you imagine growing up in a world almost completely devoid of rotary telephones?  Heck, I can remember the first punch button telephone we owned, that was cutting edge technology.  When I hung up my punch button ‘phone I would go play Yars Revenge on the Atari, or Snake Byte on the Apple II+…

Yeah, those were the days. 

This is brilliant…bravo to you residents of Beloit…
