Friendly Encounters

This is a weekly feature highlighting friends who have met celebs.

I first got to know Ross Forman through his work with Total Nonstop Action Wrestling.  Ross was instrumental in getting press credentials for me at TNA's Bound For Glory pay-per-view event in October of 2008.
Through our communication, I found out we shared an interest in Marathon running.  Ross has an interesting blog, Ross:Running a Marathon, covering his Marathon experiences.
Recently, Ross completed the Miami Half-Marathon, his 3rd Half-Marathon to go with 10 completed full Marathons. Topping it off, he accomplished all of that in just over 3 years!  As I have covered before, I have participated in 20 Marathons, completing 12-ish (I am not sure), but that covered a 15 year period.  Ross is putting up impressive numbers and he shows no signs of stopping.
In early April, Ross will be running in the Tel Aviv Marathon.  In Marathon running, I always try to take out as many variables as possible, so I can concentrate on the task at hand.  I have traveled to New York and Boston, but that's a short trip compared to Tel Aviv.  Still, my money is on Ross.  He is intense and committed.
As always, Ross will be updating his blog with thoughts and info leading up to the 26.2 miles of running in Egypt.  As always, I'll be following his journey and wishing him luck.
