I’m a friend of Jacob Woods, and I read his blog and I found yours. I like what you post, I’m a high school student as well and I run track and cross country. You write well, and I appreciate your work.
Thanks for the comment and I’m glad you like the writing so far. It is great to hear from a fellow track runner. Best of luck with your upcoming season and feel free to email me, I would love to hear some updates on how your season is going.
I saw an article about you on Outsports and I absolutely loved some of the excerpts they have from your blog. At first when I was reading, I’m thinking to myself, wow this guy is awesome. I soon realized that I have raced against you several times and had never introduced myself. I currently run for Lower Merion, and old rival of yours in both XC and track. But anyway I just wanted to say that I love your writing and your insights on what goes on in the sports world and I look forward to reading more.
Thanks Julian, I’m glad you like what I have written so far! It may be cliche but, what a small world hahah. Next time you see Penncrest at a track invite or dual meet feel free to stop by and chat – I’ll be sure to look out for you at our next few meets.
Best of luck for the rest of your indoor season!
I want to commend you on a fantastic blog. When I graduated from high school five years ago, LGBT issues were still taboo and I couldn’t find the courage to come out until I left for college. You may not think of it as any big deal (you may even think of it as common sense), but the example you’re setting is extraordinary. It’s one thing to use your voice to stand up for yourself and for LGBT equality; it’s another to help spearhead the issue of LGBT equality in sports (a traditionally intimidating setting for many closeted teens). Thank you for standing up and giving those who need it an empowering resource so that they may find the strength to stand up too.
Craig, you’re awesome man… I volunteer with gay youth and I will DEFINITELY be sharing your blog with them… people like you who fight the good fight with integrity, education and respectfulness are inspiring
Bravo Graig! I only wish that people had been more accepting when I was in High School. It was a difficult journey for me but I think you are a pioneer to change all of that. Keep on Keepin’ on as you are and I know that you will change the world for us all. Thank You!!!!!!!
Thanks Herman!! Your words really mean a lot!
Hello Craig, first I jut have to say, great job with your blog, I found it entertaing and educational, well done, our mutual friend Jacob Woods got me onto you and here’s the result http://thebestblogreviewer.blogspot.com/2011/06/craigs-gay-word.html I hope you enjoy it
Craig “Amico Mio” I just wished to express just how frick’n proud of you I am! This site it’s content and purpose is “Molto Fantastico”! The World that you and your generation are “Coming Out” in has been undergoing a remarkable “Paradigm Shift” in thoughts and attitudes towards queer (LGBT/gay) ! Many years ago as a teenage boy, I met and fell in love with another boy (Bobby Griffith/Prayers for Bobby), and desperately tried to navigate through a decidedly hostile and completely toxic World! Much has changed, and I pleased to say with absolute certainty, more is on its way! I look forward to checking in with you kids periodically! And don’t you dare take offense at “Kids” for I say that with nothing but love in my heart!!!!!
Grazie Mille Ragazzo Bello!
Con L’Amore e Molti Baci! (With My Love And Kisses)
Il Suo Amico Per Sempre! (Your Friend Always)
Great job in maintaining this blog Craig. It does provide a great space for students from all over to share and to exchange stories. It is inspiring to read. Thank you for your work in doing this. I believe peer to peer conversations are the most powerful, and matter the most many times. I am glad that you are finding Georgetown a positive experience; it has been quite a sea change here in the last three years. Thank you for your leadership, and proud to count you among us here on the Hilltop.
