They are putting in a Chipotle less than a mile from my apartment. This may not bode well for my weight management.
Sky Blue Sky comes out May 17, and they have free MP3 of “What Light” on their site. Love that steel.
I’m running the Charlotte RaceFest half-marathon for time tomorrow (I’m going to try to set a PR of 1:35 flat). There will be some first-timers tomorrow in both the half (Dirk) and the 10k (Udit), so good luck to everyone.
