Hitting the midsummer point halfway between Memorial Day and Labor Day means two actions: One, that it’s usually hot outside, and two, that it’s time to get ready for The Daily News Press Run. The Press Run, scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 8, features certified 5K and 10K courses, a kids’ 1K a…

As most of you know, I train or give advice to others about diets, exercise and weight training. When it comes to weight training, I need to know all your previous injuries, surgeries and medical history. This information is most important in order to customize a program that best fits your goals.

Perhaps it is not a coincidence that the 147th Open Championship will be played later this week in Angus, Scotland at Carnoustie Golf Club — just as my bride and I have concluded viewing the Netflix Original Series “Stranger Things.”

As a kid growing up into my mid-20s, I thought of myself as an average person. It was never a problem shopping because I wore average-size clothes and shoes. Also, during that time, I worked at average-paying jobs, including living the life as another average person in our society.

A few years ago, I stood at a bar next to Hall of Fame golfer Nick Price, both of us ordering a scotch and water. The occasion was a pre-tournament dinner for the Insperity — a Champions Tour event held annually at the TPC course at The Woodlands, where golf is still played around corners an…

What’s changed over the past decade or so is where newly acquired surfboards originate. Based on the photos I’m seeing online, it seems that most surfers in the Lone Star State don’t ride boards shaped in Texas.

One of the joys of running is being out in nature, but sometimes civilization intrudes a little too much. It’s jarring to find trash along a favorite outdoor path or to have cans and bottles marring a beach run. Apparently, it’s a universal problem, and Scandinavians have addressed it by “pl…

Late Saturday night, NBA free agency began with a fast and furious pace — one that quickly squashed much of the wild speculation that led up to its official start. And apparently that spoiled the fun for some.

What gives, Galveston County? The Fourth of July is the second largest racing day in the country, yet there’s not a single Firecracker 5K, Four on the Fourth, nor other running event, patriotic-themed or otherwise, scheduled anywhere in the county for the holiday.

I found it a useful coincidence that on the same day Daily News publisher Leonard Woolsey wrote about recognizing (sort of) one’s physical limitations due to, well, aging and the need to perhaps try to make lifestyle adjustments, Gerry Watson won his 12th PGA Tour event.

It is not likely that any professional golfer will ever even come close to having a season like that of Byron Nelson back in 1945, when he won 11 consecutive tournaments. Tiger Woods won seven consecutive starts in 2006-2007; Woods and Ben Hogan each had years when they won six consecutive events.

“June Is Bustin’ Out All Over” is a line from a song by the same name in the 1945 musical “Carousel.” At Shinnecock Hills Golf Club — about 90 miles east of New York City, where today the forecast high temperature is a ridiculous 70-something degrees — June is bustin’ out with the 118th U.S.…

Perhaps you are still in shock over the total dominance by Dustin Johnson in winning the St. Jude Classic. Like Justify at the Belmont Stakes, Johnson took the lead and never faltered, putting an exclamation point on his win (and return to No. 1 in the World Ranking) with an eagle at the par…
