The needed non-runner friend

by altardy on July 19, 2009

Some people think if your as involved in running as I am that the only people I should hang around with are people that eat, sleep, and breath running. For anyone in any serious part of their life, no matter what the subject, this for the most part is true. However, I feel there should also be people you can turn to that take you, at least temporarily, away from being so wrapped up in something you loose yourself. Dave Sparks is one of those people for me. Golf is one of those sports I enjoy playing. Dave is one of those people anyone would enjoy playing a round of golf with. He kicks your butt on the course but he does it with such a relaxed easy going nature you actually don’t mind loosing. He always keeps the talk light-hearted and comical while he birdies a whole compared to your bogey. But for some reason it seems ok. Five or so weeks ago he announced that his wife was pregnant with their first child. What a great thing. We are pictured here at one of our areas best kept courses. The Southampton Country Club and it’s owners, Tom and Jimmy, have also been good friends of mine for a decade or better.
