What do you love most about running?
What do you love most about music?
Also, music just makes me feel good.
Band (current, all time or both): Pixies (the only band represented on my body via tattoo) (so far)
Album (current, all time or both): Part of me wants to say, "I truly don't have one favorite album, it's more like a 30-way tie for first place." But another, more expedient part of me will just say, Mass Romantic by The New Pornographers.
Race venue: The Boston Marathon
Music venue: With maybe two or three exceptions, I haven't been to a live show in... Holy cow, like, 10 years. Maybe more. But I covered entertainment for men's magazines in NYC, circa 1999-2005, and used to go to tons of shows. My favorite venue there was probably the Mercury Lounge, a tiny place on the Lower East Side. (I just Googled it, and was happy to see it's still around.)
