Did you hear your radio crackle, just now? The static fuzz that tickled your tympanic membrane?

It was me. I’m back, and I’m dragging this blog into the future. Some things you’ll notice off the bat: name change, shiny new theme, and actual art as opposed to crummy stock images I culled from the inter webs. In fact, that last bit is the best news I’ve got: my sister is going to let me use some of her art, and promises to come up with some new work as well.

Christmas Music…The Gift That Keeps on Giving.

Well, it’s the 26th of December. Like many of you, I woke up knowing it was time to burn some of the eggnog, smoked salmon, tamales, and God knows whatever else delicious food we’ve devoured over the past two days of non-stop noshing. Oh, and beer.

It finally warmed up a bit here in AK, so I didn’t have to get too nuts with the apparel, which was nice. I harnessed up Bonnaroo, threw on the studded Adidas Adizero XTs, and rolled out the door.

Megs (+1!) at “The Office”

Last year, I ran a blog post interview of Meghan (Megs) Lederer, the Executive Director or Team Race for Veterans. At the time, R4V was just getting going, and I’ve witnessed tremendous growth over the past year as an R4V Ambassador. I thought it was high time to catch back up with Megs and share what’s been going on over the past year. It’s easy to forget about the harsh realities of NPOs – long hours, low pay, and often, not much concrete to show for your efforts. But as you will read below, Megs and team have a ton to show for the past year. Bravo to Megs, R4V and all who support!
