Wanderlust. My blog is moving (soon, soon) to a new locale that I fantasize is like cyber-Boulder, where I have never been, but which I assume is the best possible city for a liberal runner to live*. For much of the summer, Henry and I will also be visiting family, which will allow me hours and hours of writing time while he swims, paints, and eats strawberry ice cream. Then in August, I go to Australia for three weeks on my run-about in the bush.
Life is good. In fact, someone should put that on a t-shirt.
Clearly I'm incredibly fortunate to be in my life and have this opportunity. In celebration of my blog move and my travels, I am spreading the wealth. No, I'm not giving away a Qantas ticket next to me--sorry. Thanks to the awesome folks at All Modern Baby, I have a messenger bag from Timbuk2 to give away to a lucky blog reader. Based in Boston, All Modern Baby is a dependable source of children’s furniture that carries top brands such as Bugaboo, Stokke, and Maclaren. They also offer modern housewares and gear for grown-ups. And as most awesome people know, Timbuk2 makes those hip bags that let you feel like an urban bike messenger without the risk of death under the wheels of a city bus.
Pheidippides was a messenger. Maybe if he'd had a messenger bag to carry water and gels, he wouldn't have bit the dust in Athens.
To win the bag, leave a comment on this post, responding to the question:
If you could run off and wander anywhere in the world, where would you go?
I'll choose a name at random on Tuesday June 16 (noon, EDT) and post the winner with a review of the bag.
