Running with the Big Dog

Rainbow-Wahine defeat Missou in Women’s College World Series


   Traci Yoshikawa’s two run home run in the top of the 7th inning gave the University of Hawaii an opening game win against the Missouri Tigers, 3-2, on opening day of the College World Series in Oklahoma City.

  The Rainbows trailed going into the final inning, but with a runner on first base, Yoshikawa delivered the big hit to put Hawaii in the winners bracket and will play the winner of the ucla – Florida game.

   The Rainbows lead the nation in total number of team home runs (152) and in scoring average per game at 7.1 runs.

   A tremendous win for the Rainbow Wahine in their first ever appearance in the College World Series.

   The home run saved Hawaii as they defeated number 1 Alabama in Regional Play.

   Stay tuned for a fantastic continuation for a Cinderella team (ranked #16 in the nation) as they make their way in Oklahoma.

   GO BOWS!!!

Eat Right and Exercise While on Vacation

No dinner is complete without a glass of Merlot

Exercise and Eating Right while on Vacation

   It might sound tough, but it really isn’t!  Eating right and getting daily exercise while on vacation is something that is a must for the Big Dog and lovely wife Randee.

   We’re here in Florida and each morning we’re out for an hour walk/run and then after dinner, around 7 pm we’re out again for another hour or more.

   Last night was exceptionally spectacular, watching the sun disappear in an orange glow in the Western Hemisphere.

   Florida is extremely hot and humid with numerous lighting storms and is a senior’s paradise haven for those that spent a lifetime in the frigid New England coast.

   While on vacation we’re fortunate enough to be treated to the great home cooking at the Rosen Estate in Tamarac, Broward County.  Last night we each had a large 8 oz helping of salmon, corn on the cob, asparagus and a nice tossed salad.

   Or course no dinner is complete without a glass or two of merlot.

    The major obstacle while in Florida is staying hydrated while on the go, but by carrying bottled water the problem is quickly solved.

    While on vacation stay away from junk food and see the real area for where you are by getting out and walking – everywhere.
