Turned 30 on Monday. I probably should have some profound thoughts on that milestone, but I didn’t have any revelations. Instead, I stuffed my face with an amazing homemade Chicken Parmesan from Cook’s Illustrated (thanks Rach), and topped that off with Bittersweet Ice Cream cake from Purity. I then dragged my 30 year old belly over to The State Theater for a concert. The show was Neko Case with an opening act of Eric Bachman / Crooked Fingers. Bachman looks like a gentle giant holding a little guitar up on stage and Neko Case could probably kick my ass if she wanted. They were both outstanding…and I can’t believe the quality of music that’s being brought to Ithaca. Many thanks to Dan Smalls of Dan Smalls Presents for that.
Tonight Rachel and I are off to Nasvhille for the Country Music Marathon. I’m still feeling the IT band, but I’ve been getting physical therapy and rubbing Tiger Balm every day. So we’ll see how it goes. If you want to track the race progress, they will have live results at the 5k, 10k, 10 mile and two other spots during the race on their website. The race has a staggered start at 7am. I’ll report back next week on the race outcome and Nashville life.
Thanks to everyone that donated to this race and the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. If you still want to make a donation, they can be made here.
