Run All The Races

So many races, so little time…

Run with Me

The Ultimate Buzzkill

I waited to share this story until I was sure no one was reading…so two weeks ago, I went out for an easy Monday afternoon run. I believe I was running four miles at a 1/2 mile run, 1/4 mile walk intervals. I was about a mile in, about half way though my second 1/2 mile interval when a bee attacked.

Not one to be thwarted by waking up at 2 am or running 13.1 (plus another 6.2) miles, I will not let a little thing like runDisney moving my favorite race to the morning (making it no longer my favorite race) ruin my Food & Wine plans.

Coachella Band Exploration: GRIMES

My Coachella Band Exploration led me to Grimes today. My close the eyes and point sometimes leads to someone I actually know. Grimes is played on the radio constantly and Artboy digs her. I’ve never been a fan, but let me explore and see if that’s changed.
