On my way to an eaaaaaaarly morning run last weekend, I stumbled onto Baz Luhrmann’s quirky “Everybody’s Free (to Wear Sunscreen).” Wade had never heard this before. How is that possible???
Here’s a refresher, for those of you who also missed this the first time around (15 years ago). “If I could offer you only one tip for the future, sunscreen would be it.” Word.
Over the weekend, I ran the Reuel Little Classic 10K in Madill, OK (population 3,500, most of whom seem to be somehow related to Rita’s husband). This was my last tune-up race before my half marathon. It was also, apparently, the race in which I exorcised all the running demons.
Which is just another way of saying it could have gone better.
Rita and her sister-in-law ran the 5K; Rita ran every step of the way (hooray!), while Amy threw up near the finish (boo). I did not throw up, although I thought about it at one point. Quite seriously.
This is my absolute favorite running song right now. And the video is fab. I’ve been practicing my faux flapper dance moves all week, and trying to figure out how to do that amazing smoky eye.
Also: James Bond tie in! Hello, Daniel Craig. Nice to see you looking so 007-y. Although I’m fairly sure James Bond doesn’t drink Heineken.
