This is what’s been keeping me busy at work.
I’m actually quite excited for the year ahead working with this lady and more than a little worried that it’s going to interfere with my running schedule! I think a few people have missed that voice, and I can promise, if that’s you -this album will not disappoint. I had goosebumps upon goosebumps when I listened to ‘Love You Should’ve Come Over’ for the first time.
Here’s my cameo in the video, uhuh, that’s me at the desk in the middle trying to hide.
And one more when I totally get busted being in the shot:
I am curious to see how you’ll all react to me posting about this – she’s got quite the polarizing effect. The press release just went live on USA Today, and the FIRST comment was some idiot mouthing off about something happening ten years ago. Not to mention the time I went rummaging through storage at work and found all the Dixie Chi cks hate mail. It’s very strange – to me she’s just a singer, with a talent, and voice who makes great music… but for others, she’s a real pin board for a lot of hate and disgust.
I’d like to believe that runners are bigger, better, more open minded people than the average USA Today reader, or those awful people who wished her dead. When we’re in races; when we run together, it doesn’t matter to me who you voted for, or what you believe in – at that moment, in a race, we’re just runners, and we’re all connected and are the same. If we could all remember that feeling of what it is to be in a pack like that in the rest of our lives, maybe we’d all get along better. After all, we’re all born to run.
So runners… lover her, or hate her?
And did you unfollow me?!
