Freeeeeedom! kite

I finally crossed #14 off my list this summer! Although the super tiny kite was designed for small children, I had lots of fun running around the beach with it.

How is it possible that I haven't flown a kite up until now? Well, I did try once when I was little. My dad was super excited about it. But as soon as he got it in the air, it got caught in a tree.

Vacation time


Oh boy, this has been a long time coming. Super excited to finally cross #14 off my list. Now it's time to start scheming a getaway.

Blue skies and bocce


I can't imagine a better way to spend a #summerfriday than having lunch and playing bocce in the north end.  Why did it take me so long to cross off #24?

Gumby shares wisdom

Have you ever wondered why Gumby's head has that awkward cowlick? It's a wisdom bump. True story. The creator wanted him to have a tall, slender body without being a phallic symbol, and so the bump was born.

I feel obligated to share some of the wisdom I learned while dressed as Gumby last weekend.
  • 71 degrees is a little too hot for a sweater unitard
  • Union Square is THE place to go after a Davis Square run.
  • Kier Byrnes Freedom Runners might be the coolest running group in the city.
  • The wheel is the new plank. Everyone loves them.
  • Green food coloring makes everything taste better
  • If you wear a costume, strangers will cheer for you, you'll run faster and you'll get a lot of high fives.

New hairdo


It's important to try new things...even if they don't quite work out. Turns out, bangs are a major pain, but I crossed off #9 in the process.
