Not much going on around here today except work, work, and more work but that doesn’t mean I haven’t read or seen a few things lately that I wanted to talk about. Here are a few things that piqued my interest and might be of interest to you as well.
I’ve been fortunate enough to be able to take a few runcations over the years but I’m always up for more. Apparently so are a lot of other runners according to this recent article in the New York Post.
The author of the story ran a race in the Cayman Islands and was the third woman overall following a day of snorkeling and kissing a stingray for good luck. She planned to celebrate running the marathon with an afternoon of wine tasting afterward. That sounds like a hell of a good time, doesn’t it? You can read the entire article by clicking here.
I’ve often wondered what kinds of preservatives fast food restaurants use in their food especially since I posted about ice cream that never melts and a McDonald’s hamburger that someone had left in their pocket for years and it still looked the same.
I’m convinced they put something similar to formaldehyde in there, they have to. Take a look at this Happy Meal. It’s about the same age as my dog Hank, which would means it’s six years old, SIX. YEARS.
You can read all about the experiment here.
When he was born he was frail and for the first few years of his life he suffered from bronchial infections and pneumonia. He also had a really hard time walking.
He had boils on his legs and his mother would boil a knife and cut them out. He was six before he able to walk to school with his siblings, but by then he didn’t want to walk, he wanted to run.
He is Jesse Owens and in a few weeks a movie about his life comes out. I cannot wait to see it.
I’m also loving this song by Raury that plays in the trailer. It’s called Devil’s Whisper and it makes me want to run all the miles!
Tell me something that piqued your interest recently, anything.
Have you ever eaten a Happy Meal?
Will you ever eat another Happy Meal again?
