I have never, to my knowledge, committed an athletic act

 A good motto to live by, at least it was for me at ACS.  We had physical fitness tests twice a year which included a 400- or 800-meter run at the AUB track.  The guys would start about 1 or 2 minutes ahead of the girls.  I was part of that elite group of slackers whose only motivation was to not let any of the girls beat us.  Beats me how I’ve got a kid who swims in college…

PS — motto was Mark Tichenor’s father-in-law’s.
