Kind Julie over at You Just Have to TRI tagged me for the viral Q&A that's going around thanks to our good buddy Chris K. at The Manly Runner (I should mention here that Julie in just 13 days will be doing 70.3--that's a half Ironman!--and that Chris K., in addition to being manly, is a Boston qualifier and one of my main inspirations--see the Inspiring BQ Stories page for more about him).
....Terzah. What this means: you can ask me any question and I pledge to answer it (since I've never had anyone leave a raunchy or otherwise inappropriate comment on this blog, I think that's a safe thing to say!).
These can be questions about running or questions that have nothing to do with running, such as, "What was the first album you ever owned?"
I'll go ahead and answer that now: Men At Work, "Business As Usual." It was an LP record (yep, I'm at the tail-end of the last generation to buy those on a regular basis), my parents bought it for me when I was eight or nine years old and I played it over and over again on my Fisher Price record player (unless my dad let me use his stereo), it had a yellow hard-hat construction theme, those guys are from Australia and I still love them. "Land Down Under".....now there's a song.
My current band obsession is Mumford & Sons. I really do think this group of four scruffy-looking English dudes was sent straight down by God in heaven to remind me that there can be almost perfect beauty in the world. I sometimes forget that. Here's a video of one of their as-yet unreleased songs:
So anyway....if you don't think it will be too boring, ask away! I'm also supposed to tag others with this designation, but almost everyone I read has already been tagged. If you haven't been tagged (and especially if your name is Erin, Christy, Chris C. or Margot), consider yourself tagged now.
