First as Snuggie Pub Crawl, now a run in your undergarments to support The Colon Cancer Alliance! Have to admit, people are being clever in these uncertain economic times. So the question is… Which will chafe less on a 5k run? Boxers or Briefs?

From Fleet Feet:

Yep, you read it right. 5000 meters in your favorite undergarment!

The Colon Cancer Alliance’s (CCA) 1st Annual St. Louis Undy 5000 event will take place on Saturday, March 28th, 2009. This “brief” 5K run/walk is designed to raise awareness and funds for the fight against colorectal cancer. Because runners and walkers will be wearing anything from their favorite running shorts to their wildest pair of boxers, this event is sure to get people talking.

The Undy 5000 begins at 9AM and will be held at Forest Park at the Upper Muny parking lot. All Undy 5000 participants will receive a commemorative pair of boxers (while supplies last). The Gateway CCA Chapter will kick off the opening ceremony, set to begin around 8:45AM.

Awards will be given to the top three overall male and female finishers, as well as to the top three males and females in the following age groups: 10 & under, 11 to 19, 20 to 29, 30 to 39, 40 to 49, 50 to 59, 60 to 69, 70 & over.

You can register for the event online by visiting the Undy 5000 website. You can also register during packet pickup, which will be held on Friday, March 27th, at FLEET FEET Sports in Chesterfield, from 10AM-8PM. There will also be race day registration and packet pickup.

This important but fun event will be held in different cities across the country throughout the year to educate the public about colon cancer, promote screenings, and get people talking about this deadly, but preventable disease. The Undy 5000 will raise much-needed funds to support and build CCA’s innovative screening and awareness programs.

To register or to learn more about the Undy 5000 and colon cancer, visit www.undy5000.org   You may also reply to this email or contact Eric Doherty at (636) 328-5984.

Popular forum site www.urbanstl.com has been down for over a week with a database error. No clue as to why.

I blame suburban sprawl.

*12/29 UPDATE*

Back up! Maybe it was overcome with holiday spirit.

For those that get a kick out of strange art stories – I missed this one when it originally happened. Apparently, a very, very heavy (most of them are) Serra sculpture went M.I.A.; now, the museum is having it refabricated. Story here.

There’s more than a few of us  diverted by the self-help sections at the big bookstores. Lowered eyes scan the first few pages to see if the advice is worthwile, and then we nonchalantly return the book to the shelf or make our way to the check-out counter. Most advice in these books seem to be hoopla–or just healthy common sense–but more often than not the authors border  on insufferable self-righteousness. I know. I read them. I feel the pain (and rejoice with good insight)!

 

Today I was lured onto the wikiHow site, which offers advice on “How to Overcome Procrastination Using Self-Talk.” I especially dig the suggestions on rephrasing internal dialogue. Can you manage to turn the thought ““I have to finish this long, important project. It should already be done by now and I need to plow through it” to “I choose to start this task with a small, imperfect step. I’ll feel terrific and have plenty time for fun!”?

It least helps me crack a smile. Well, there you have it. Let’s get on with the fun. Stop procastinating.

Technical difficulties. Will have the old look (or maybe a new one) up soon. Until then, enjoy the beautiful Irish coastline.

Today, I had the opportunity to add my first choice-book of the season to my wish list. I smiled as I clicked the option “add to wish list.” Despite the fact I’ve moved to a new house and every book I own is in stacks -and not those cool college library ones, I still can’t help browsing for new titles to add to the pile of unreads.

Read some commentary on my pick: The Chicagoan. Just as St. Louis often has the “New York-syndrome,” Chicago culture seemed to lead suit by producing its own version of The New Yorker.  Unfortunately, the Chicagoan disappeared from production long ago. . .what’s the future of zines and newsprint anyway?

Side note: To make good on your own wishlists (and others), head to Barnes & Noble in Ladue to help raise some money for local charity: the Contemporary Art Musuem St. Louis. Mention its name over the course of December 7 and 8, and it’ll receive a portion of the proceeds.

Happy reading!

I’ve considered, as of late, writing under a pen name. I would avoid trouble and also any consequence associated with my writing. But does anyone read it anyway? Well, if you’re reading online, this is of interest—online news sources are getting cred for doing the job professionally and doing it cheaply in this New York Times post-complete with a nod to Saint. Louis’s own St. Louis Beacon. How do you keep track of it all? Well, I just updated my igoogle page, problem is I never remember to check it. I’m open to suggestions.
