Many parents have read, liked and tweeted Glennon Doyle Melton's popular essay " Don't Carpe Diem " about bucking traditional advice to enjoy every second with her kids. ("This CARPE DIEM message makes me paranoid and panicky. Especially during this phase of my life - while I'm raising young kids. Being told, in a million different ways to CARPE DIEM makes me worry that if I'm not in a constant state of intense gratitude and ecstasy, I'm doing something wrong. ") The founder of momastery.com followed up that viral success with a book called "Carry On, Warrior" that describes overcoming her bulemia and drug and alcohol abuse to become the mother she is today -- imperfect, but who isn't?

There are many obstacles along the path to becoming a ninja warrior. One must dash up the steps, slanted at 50 degrees, to reach the platform above, or perhaps run along the 14-foot curved wall - all without falling into the pool of water below. "If your foot skims the water, you're done," said 30-year-old Tony Torres. Torres, will be one of hundreds trying to land a spot on the TV show "American Ninja Warrior," which holds tryouts Friday and Saturday at Rash Field in the Inner Harbor.

A Wounded Warrior and employee with the U.S. Army Test and Evaluation Command (ATEC) here recently got a new best friend, courtesy of Hero Dogs, a Maryland charity that provides service dogs to injured or disabled veterans. Kelly Keck, an equal employment opportunity specialist in ATEC's EEO Office, and Lady Liberty recently met when representatives from the charity introduced him to the 3-year-old golden retriever, called "Libby" for short. Keck and Libby are still in training but warmed to each other enough to begin spending 24 hours a day in each other's company, organizers said.

A little more than two years ago, Corey Hirsch's older sister gave him an idea. Bridget Hirsch, a student at Hobart and William Smith Colleges in New York, had recently seen her school participate in a charity hockey game benefiting the Wounded Warrior Project. She took a few pictures at the event and sent some information to her family, thinking it might be something they could replicate back home. Corey thought it was a great idea. Then a sophomore at DeMatha, Corey approached coach Tony MacAulay about doing something similar with the Stags hockey team.

Thousands of military jobs have opened up to women in recent years, but not those in the front-line combat units. That may soon change, however, as a result of a lawsuit brought late last year by four women veterans of the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, including Staff Sgt. Jennifer Hunt of Gaithersburg. Their complaint alleges that banning women from combat roles solely on the basis of their gender violates the Equal Protection Clause of the Constitution and restricts women's opportunities for career advancement and higher earnings and pensions.

But for Pasadena resident Roderick Allman, 39, the suit allows him to become "Ravenous Maximus" on the days of Raven games. Allman moved to Baltimore from Hawaii at age 18. When the Ravens came to Baltimore, he was hooked. "Hawaii doesn't have a professional football team, so it's only big to some people there," Allman said. "But Baltimore is a town that loves football.

For nine years, Bobby Nyk didn't miss a single Ravens game, home or away. That home streak is impressive enough, but it was all those away games that earned him the nickname "The Ravens Road Warrior. " It's a moniker worn proudly by the 62-year-old Baltimore native, who spent most of those nine years working for the team as a DJ outside the stadium on game days. "I don't think anyone's been to more away games than me, except for maybe Nestor Aparicio," the retired Howard County teacher says, referring to the Baltimore radio sports personality and rabid Ravens fan. "Him, and of course the players.
