Saturday, March 24, 2007 I Broke the 10 Mile Barrier!
I went for a big long run today, and I finally broke the 10 mile barrier. While I'm sure I have run 10 miles in a day at an ultimate tournament, I have never jogged 10 miles continuously.
I ran from Fort Greene, over the Brooklyn Bridge and back, to Brooklyn Heights and along the Promenade. I stopped for a gatorade in Dumbo, and then I ran across the Manhattan Bridge and back. As I approached home, I chose to do one lap through Fort Greene Park to make sure I made it to 10. I was lucky, because when I used WalkJogRun.net to calculate my mileage, it turns out that I ran 10.11 miles. If I hadn't taken that extra lap in the park I would have been disappointed.
I need to be able to run 13 miles in mid-April for the Brooklyn Half Marathon, so I think I'm in good shape.
Check out the video Uncommon Schools uses to recruit teachers to work in our charter schools. I will be transitioning over to work at North Star Academy as a Director of Operations this summer. North Star is an amazingly inspiring place, and I'm happy to be on board.
Wednesday, March 14, 2007 ONE HUNDREDTH SHOW
This Saturday Hello Nurse will play our 100th show as our current lineup. Mike joined the group in February 2004, and over the three years we've been together it seems like we've played a million shows.... but it was actually just 99 shows. If you're in NYC, start your St. Patty's Day celebration off right. We're playing at 9PM, and you can just continue hammering yourself with alcohol into the night.
As a special treat, we are playing an extended set of greatest hits in chronological order. We will start off with the first song we ever wrote together, which after pulling it out of the basement and dusting it off REALLY ROCKS! We will end with a bunch of new tunes you may not have heard if you haven't been to a show in a while.
Score points by wearing green. Score more points by dressing as a nurse. Score a zillion points by dressing like a leprechaun nurse.
Here are the details:
Saturday, March 17 - 9:00 PM HELLO NURSE
