#NEXTraordinary People: Julie Lane

JULIE LANE HAS “COMPLETED” 10 MARATHONS. She’s very precise about it. Not “run.” Not “raced” in. But completed. She’s telling me this like I’m going to go back and check the footage or something. But that’s not it at all. It’s just that she has a thing for very precise information. It’s all about having good data. (That’s just the way she is.)

So she tells me that she did not, in fact, run all 26.2 miles of those 10 marathons. Nope, that’s not what happened. Non-stop running did not occur. She “definitely ran some, but there was a lot of walking in there, too.” And just to make sure I totally got her approach, she says: “I never run for ‘times’ but rather for the goal and the love of running and training…

#NEXTraordinary People: Keosha Burns

KEOSHA BURNS IS A TOTAL EXTROVERT. SHE LOVES THE BIG CITY. Even her dog is a big city kind of guy. They found their happy place in the heart of New York City.
That is, until the pandemic hit. Now, New York City is locked down tight. So, they are taking a break down south. On March 14, Burns and her French Bulldog, Winston Charles IV, headed to Charlottesville, Virginia, to find a little breathing room, away from the pandemic. We reached her on April 9, on her cell, out in the garden, working remotely.

Like most of us she’s been living life under quarantine, far from New York, in a strange state (geographically speaking), missing the buzz of the big city.
When they are home, Winston, a 3-year old, 31-pound Frenchie, loves his walks in Marcus Garvey Park (where he’s something of a celebrity.) On good days (say, two/three months ago), they would stroll down 125thStreet near their place, past the Whole Foods, on the way to the park.

#NEXTraordinary People: Cerita Battles

CERITA BATTLES KNEW, AT 10, SHE WANTED TO BE A BANKER. That tells you something, right there.  Because what 10-year old growing up in a beautiful, historic, seaside, Florida city, says her ultimate career goal is to be a banker?Olympic swimmer, maybe? Marine biologist, possibly? Lead singer in a band, or top vet at a zoo, or Mariah Carey, maybe? But banker? I don’t think so. (Or, let’s just say, it’s not likely. At 10, I mean. For me, personally, anyway.) But this, of course, is not your typical 10-year old. Not even close. Let me introduce you to Cerita J. Battles, of St. Augustine, Florida. She’s pretty much always known what she wanted in life. And today, (yes) she’s a successful banker. And I have no doubt she was one, smart, ambitious, independent-minded, 10-year old…
