1977 high school photos of me racing the 440

From 1977, the start of an open 440 dash. Me in lane one (the second worst lane) at the very start.

Coming out of turn two, i’ve fallen farther behind.

Rounding the final turn for the homestretch, still far behind the leaders.

Gonna be a close finish. The winner is up for grabs. Who wants it more?

Difficult to see…but in watching the old video yesterday, i pulled off the win.

Stumbled on stuff from 1977.

It reminds me how unconventionally i ran as a teen.

It’s almost unheard of to run negative splits – where your second half is faster than the first half.

Disney brought out my unconventional in ways i never saw coming.

Thank you Walt and Roy.

May i still possess an adventurer’s spirit

Disney Employee culture speakers
Stumbled upon this 1982 gem.

 

Prepping for a keynote speech next week and searching 1982 photos from my first days at Walt Disney World and stumbled upon this one from a cross-country bicycle trek.

Departed Philadelphia for places South and West.

i knew the $75 cash i had wouldn’t last and was excited for the adventure in how i’d learn to manage.

Headed South because it was early October and warmer weather seemed smart.

West because my best friend was living in Washington State.

Cash because i owned no credit card, nor did i have a bank account with money in it.

Literally every Disney Institute Program ends like this

Disney Institute Keynote Speakers
There are a “million of these” kinds of photos.

 

Literally every Disney Institute Program ends like this (above), but after awhile, you stop taking selfies with Mickey every time.

Even though you could.

Changes in latitude, changes in altitude

Significant change in exercise routine.

Elevation jumped from 100′ above sea level to 5,300′.

Ran and walked (taking pictures)  8.5 miles at really slow pace to avoid altitude sickness.

Also ran with a shirt on, even though it was late afternoon. Neither of which would ever happen in Florida, in May.
