Jersey Magazine with Jim Monaghan

We have two interviews this morning on Jersey Magazine – Morris County native Daniel Buckelew who is running in the 2023 Boston Marathon, and Jeff Friedman from Livingston Philanthropies on a special benefit coming up in a couple of weeks.

When the 2023 Boston Marathon kicks off on Monday April 17, one of the runners participating with be Morris County native Daniel Buckelew.

This will be Daniel’s second running of the event, the first time being in October 2021; you may recall Daniel being a guest on Jersey Magazine right before the marathon.

Daniel was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis more than 10 years ago, but he refuses to be defined or limited by MS which is one of the inspirational parts of his story.

Jim Monaghan and Daniel talk about running in the Boston Marathon, the training and mental toughness involved, and what Daniel’s future plans are.

Learn more about MS on the National Multiple Sclerosis Society website.

If you grew up in New Jersey in the 1980’s you no doubt have fond memories of The Uncle Floyd Show.

An irreverent homage to both children’s TV shows and late-night talk shows, Floyd Vivino and the cast routinely crashed through television’s “fourth wall” with zany skits and characters reminiscent of the days of Soupy Sales.

Jeff Friedman was part of the production crew for “The Uncle Floyd Show.” Now the CEO of Livingston Philanthropies, Jeff is teaming up once again with Uncle Floyd in a benefit performance on April 15th at the Presbyterian Church in Livingston.

Roger Keyser from Eleventh Hour Rescue brought Birch and Apple to Rock N’ Ruff in hopes of finding these amazing puppies a great forever home.

If you’re looking for a young pup, these guys are perfect. They’re working on leash walking, housebreaking, crate training and obedience but most important, they have wonderful dispositions. In fact for puppies, they are on the calmer side.

Birch loves to give kisses and Apple is so cuddly. They are learning life in a home with their foster mom and enjoy toys and car rides. They are truly perfect! If you would like info on Birch and Apple – hit this link and fill out an application.

COACH SHEETS’ RIDE INJeremy Sheetinger is the head baseball coach at Georgia Gwinnett College where he led the Grizz Gang to the 2021 NAIA National Championship. His weekly “fire me up” tweet every Thursday may, on the surface, be geared toward his fellow baseball coaches, but his motivational message can easily be applied to the classroom, workplace, and your personal relationships. When you ask someone how they’re doing and they give you the stock answer of “good,” take the extra step to find out what’s REALLY happening.
