Train and run a Race


God help me, but I am running my first half marathon on Sunday. I started running in December of last year, and though it’s been a tough road, there is nothing like the feeling of wrapping a medal around my neck after crossing the finish line.

If it’s in a local theater, see the independent movie Blackbird, a tale of a gay male living in the deep South
