Martin is a man from Mexico City who loves running so much that he flies to Tijuana and then takes the Greyhound bus to Los Angeles (those of you who have been to the Greyhound station in downtown LA know how much love this takes) so that he can run the LA Marathon. 

He has done this 10 times and every's the biggest event of his year.

Martin is blind. 

I had the honor of guiding Martin for the first 1/2 of the LA Marathon yesterday, and it was one of the most humbling and joyous experiences I have ever had. What an amazing person he is! 

Thank you, Martin, for teaching me some much deserved serious life lessons in a mere 14 miles!! I am eternally thankful and cannot wait to have the opportunity to guide again!!!


Me. :)

Saw a show...

I went and saw a show last night with my girl Lisa (a.k.a. sister golden hair) and it was so so so refreshing. I feel like music in culture goes though these hiccups where it feels like there is just NOTHING new. No one is pushing the envelope. Even the people that are praised for pushing the envelope's music sounds like the other people that are praised for pushing the envelope's music. 

The band is Black Joe Lewis ( Hot hot hot. To me, this is what music should sound like, or at least it feels like what it should sound like for me right now. 

Full brass.

Wine & Cheese 4-EVA's really quite amazing just how much wine, cheese, and bread I can eat. 

I mean, every meal. EVERY MEAL I COULD HAVE WINE AND CHEESE AND BREAD. I'm trying to be healthy, but then I start to think about those darned Frenchies and THEY eat wine and cheese and bread every meal, and they're skinny and healthy! I mean, they even get to drink when they're pregnant and on top of all that they get tons of vacations!!! 

Just thinking out loud here...think I'm going to head to Bay Cities and get me some (you guessed it), cheese, and bread. :)

the electric car

I have a question. 

Is there a REASON that electric cars have to have a MILLION of those little yellow stickers on them that let everyone know from any direction that they are electric?  I mean, okay, have one sticker if it makes you feel that you are letting everyone know that you allegedly care more about the environment than Tahoe-guy, but, really, is all of that over the top sticker production absolutely necessary? 

Seems a little wasteful to me...perhaps someone should check on what the environment thinks about all those stickers.

Just a thought...



Way too long...

Okay, so it's been way too long since my last post...and I'm back in!

I have had an amazing few weeks since I am no longer in the ranks of the working world! Visited my bestie Bobo in Denver (it snowed...pushing further to the back of my mind any thoughts of ever moving there! Love you, Bo...but SNOW in MAY???). We had the most amazing time doing absolutely nothing. Honestly...NOTHING. It was absolute heaven.

Then I went to see my parents for a few days which was also perfect. Saw sister and hubbies new house, and of course, it's PERFECT. 

Saw Nicholas last night for the first time in over two weeks. That was the longest we had gone without seeing each other since we got married, and it was totally unsettling. There is something about my partner, my co-pilot, my confidant and soul mate that is very centering to me.  I think it's not only because we laugh so much my stomach hurts, but because he is God's best representation of his love to and for me, and that's tough to go without for longer than a day.

Now he's back at work...bless him. I'm humbled by his resolve. 

I think that's it for the day to day catch up business. Now hopefully I will get back to the "stuff" which makes a blog worth reading. ;)
