  • This kid is for real. Which is to say that Kal Lewis, a Shelter Island High School freshman, in winning the Bonac on Board to Wellness 5K this past week, has joined some fast company that includes former Gubbins Running Ahead ringers.
  • John Romero, whose East Hampton Football Club is arguably the best amateur men’s soccer team on Long Island when at full strength, said Sunday he would withdraw that team from the Long Island Soccer Football League.
  • “It’s all the same fuckin’ mall, man,” I said to Mary as we headed west from Pittsburgh last week on Route 80 in search of greener pastures, which we were to find in Perrysburg, Ohio, whose historic district reminds one of Sag Harbor on a river.
  • Juan Mancilla, a professional boxer from Springs, said during a conversation at the Maidstone Market Saturday that the idea for a boxing-fitness studio had first come to him about four years ago as he was working up a sweat in a spinning class.
  • Soon after disembarking recently from a 20-hour flight to Beijing from Dallas, Shana Menu Altschuler and a 14-year-old German-bred gray mare stabled in China were flying over 4-foot-11-inch obstacles — very much like those at the Hampton Classic Grand Prix — to victory in an FEI Longines World Cup-China League open speed class.
  • East Hampton High’s lacrosse teams finished near the bottom of their divisions, and the baseball team went 0-20, but they haven’t stopped thinking about tomorrow, as it were.
  • Hampton F.C.-Bill Miller and Bateman Painting led the Wednesday evening 7-on-7 men’s soccer league after the first three weeks of play, each with 2-0-1 records.
  • “It’s so green, O’en, so green!” I said as we walked down Main Street recently. “See the dark green, the yellow green, the gnarly roots. . . .”
  • My son-in-law and I were treated to a squash lesson by the young Egyptian pro, Mohamed Nabil, at the Southampton Recreation Center recently. He was kind, kept feeding the ball back to us so that we could smash it crosscourt or down the rail, and it was a lot of fun, especially for one whom the game has long passed by.
  • Erik Engstrom, recently returned from the University of Massachusetts, reintroduced himself to the running community here by walking away with the Hither Hills Trails Half-Marathon Saturday, in 1 hour, 36 minutes, and 34 seconds — a record given the fact that the course was changed this year.
