I don’t run cross country (as I did as a teen on the team at Southern Lehigh High School; badly, but I finished the races).
I don’t skateboard (as I did with my buddies down Main Street, Coopersburg, in a Halloween Parade back in the 1960s).
I don’t compete in demolition derbies (as I did twice at the Allentown Fair, first for an article for the Bethlehem Globe-Times and then for The Morning Call; in the second derby, I won Judge’s Choice).
