Running through quarantine

Sam Paydock is a student at Muskingum University who kept a good mentality through these unusual times.

Being his senior year in high school the pandemic took away a majority of his spring schooling and sporting activities.  

“Our track season got cancelled and I really put a lot of hard work through the offseason into that and coming off of a kind of disappointing football season I was really looking for track to kinda bounce back,” said Sam Paydock, freshman at Muskingum University. 

Sam Paydock is a freshman at Muskingum University. Paydock stays active through running.

Even though he was losing part of his senior year Paydock kept a positive mindset in throughout. 

“Even though it may seem bad at some times it could always be worse and you just gotta work hard and push through it,” said Paydock. 

That mentality was fueled by the strong support group he had around him. His track team all shared in the same disappointment so they helped work through it together. 

“Even though we did not have any actual practices, there is a group of us that kind of got together in our park and ran and worked out,” said Paydock. 

Paydock was also grateful for a coach who was there for him and his friends whenever they needed him. 

“He [track coach] was probably one of the best coaches in my life and he really helped just make sure that we were all good and that we were trying to be as positive as we could possibly be,” said Paydock. 

A good mentality is not the only thing Paydock has benefited from during this pandemic. Paydock has also enjoyed an overall better feeling toward how he handles life. 

“I think I’ve started eating healthier and just having a more well-rounded lifestyle and being able to work out, eat better, and just all around just relationships with people I think also have gotten better,” said Paydock. 

This experience has also challenged Paydock to adapt in ways that without the pandemic wouldn’t have happened.

“Before this I was more of a scheduled person, I would always have to have a schedule online. I didn’t like changes, but now I think I’ve become more adaptable to situations,” said Paydock.

Paydock adapted to these hard times and has been grateful for those around him in helping him do so.

Paydock went into this pandemic as a senior in high school, but he has run himself into his freshman year of college and hasn’t looked back.

A path to 1010 WINS

Glenn Schuck is a news reporter and anchor that had been working towards a career in media for most of his life.

Schuck has been interested in achieving a job in media ever since he was a teen.

“I just loved like being in the car or hearing a voice coming out. I thought it was like the coolest thing ever,” said Glenn Schuck, 1010 WINS news reporter and anchor.

Schuck pushed from then on to increase his knowledge and skill in radio and news reporting.

“Work hard, I think that’s one thing I can take pride in. I’ve never given up,” said Schuck.

Because of that hard work Schuck found himself a path into the media business.

Glenn Schuck is a news reporter and anchor at 1010 WINS. He is a New Jersey native who enjoys reporting in New York.

One of the jobs Schuck got involved moving from the east coast to the west coast for a job in California.

When he was 30 he received news that the station was being cancelled.

“One day the music director came into the program director, I was there a year I had moved all the way from New Jersey, drove all the way from New Jersey, drove cross country and they pulled the plug on the station,” said Schuck.

Schuck had no job at that point in his career and no idea as to what his next step would be. He felt some pressure from his family because of how successful successful his brothers were.

“My brothers are doctors, older and younger, much different career paths then I had, my parents always kind of wondered like what I was doing,” said Schuck.

That’s when he got the chance of a lifetime.

Schuck got an offer from Ben Mevorach because of the strong impression on in his college years. They offered him a job back in New York doing the one thing he had always wanted.

“This is a one in a million chance that I would get to be on the station that I dreamed of being on as a kid,” said Schuck.

Glenn Schuck has worked at 1010 WINS in New York City since 2000. He has enjoyed reporting on many different events over his career.

It was 1010 WINS that had a job opening and the next 20 years is history. Schuck went from a thirty-year-old that was laid off on one side of the country to having a job at the most listened to news stations in the United States.

“You know you need a break or you need something to go right for you cause it doesn’t always, that went right for me and it really changed my life,” said Schuck.

Schuck continues to report at 1010 WINS and will continue for the foreseeable future.

McNeil understands the struggle of managing fitness and everyday problems.

“I’m always onto the next thing. I just have to schedule things and carefully plan things,” said McNeil.

She wants to help those around her and make life a better place for them. Whether it’s though fitness or just listening to some of the advice she has for other people.

Introduce Yourself (Example Post)

This is an example post, originally published as part of Blogging University. Enroll in one of our ten programs, and start your blog right.

You’re going to publish a post today. Don’t worry about how your blog looks. Don’t worry if you haven’t given it a name yet, or you’re feeling overwhelmed. Just click the “New Post” button, and tell us why you’re here.

Why do this?

  • Because it gives new readers context. What are you about? Why should they read your blog?
  • Because it will help you focus your own ideas about your blog and what you’d like to do with it.

The post can be short or long, a personal intro to your life or a bloggy mission statement, a manifesto for the future or a simple outline of your the types of things you hope to publish.

To help you get started, here are a few questions:

  • Why are you blogging publicly, rather than keeping a personal journal?
  • What topics do you think you’ll write about?
  • Who would you love to connect with via your blog?
  • If you blog successfully throughout the next year, what would you hope to have accomplished?

You’re not locked into any of this; one of the wonderful things about blogs is how they constantly evolve as we learn, grow, and interact with one another — but it’s good to know where and why you started, and articulating your goals may just give you a few other post ideas.

Can’t think how to get started? Just write the first thing that pops into your head. Anne Lamott, author of a book on writing we love, says that you need to give yourself permission to write a “crappy first draft”. Anne makes a great point — just start writing, and worry about editing it later.

When you’re ready to publish, give your post three to five tags that describe your blog’s focus — writing, photography, fiction, parenting, food, cars, movies, sports, whatever. These tags will help others who care about your topics find you in the Reader. Make sure one of the tags is “zerotohero,” so other new bloggers can find you, too.
