D-Tag Limerick

It's St. Paddy's Day - which means lots of drinking and no running. But after preparing my D-Tag for tomorrow's race my wife and I got caught up in the usual "hilarious" runner jokes that center on how D-Tag sounds like D-Bag (those will always be funny to me) and we even wrote a little limerick in honor of St. Paddy and D-Tags everywhere (and maybe D-Bags too):


The D-Tag Limerick

There are many ways of tracking your pace
When running a road or trail race
I feel like my D-Tag
Is just being a D-Bag
Cause it says that I came in last place


Amazing poetic skills we have, I know. I then tried to find out more about a D-Tag (like what the D actually stands for)... I totally can't find it anywhere - even on the ChronoTrack Systems website. Luckily my wife suggested that it's probably just for "digital." She's a little quicker than me (mentally and running-wise). Anyone have confirmation on that? (on the digital part, not the quickness part - I don't need more confirmation on that)

Also, in case you can't follow the instructions ON the D-Tag (haha, if you're a D-Bag in other words), ChronoTrack Systems has a pdf and a sweet video out there to show you how it works. Unfortunately, if you can't work a D-Tag I don't know that you'd have the Google skills to find these guides.

For the video, try replacing D-Tag with D-Bag every time they say it. It makes it both informative AND hilarious.

Carrera de los Muertos 2013

I loved last year's Carrera de los Muertos so I had to sign up again this year.

I got a ride down to Pilsen with Fuzzy and Erica (because they're super-cool and because Pilsen is not the easiest place to get to from Lincoln Square without a car).

We got there with plenty of time to spare, which was lucky because we actually needed all that time to park the car and get a parking slip and all that. We ended up getting to the starting line just about five minutes before the race started. Luckily, the gear check for this race is impeccable and once I had my bag checked I think there was still about three minutes before start time. So I stood around looking at all the scenery: with the sweet costumes and bright purple race shirts, along with the (artistic) graffiti on a lot of the walls along the course, I think Carrera de los Muertos has to be the most colorful race in Chicago.

A Daily Guide to Chicago Comedy Shows in March

No preamble this month, let's just talk about comedy.

March 1: Meechie Hall Live Album Recording at Laugh Factory

Chicagoan Meechie Hall - who performs, hosts and headlines all over town (and has for over a decade) - is recording his first comedy album at Laugh Factory. Produced and hosted by weekly comedy showcase Stand Up Stand Up, this live recording event will feature opening acts Michael Robinson, Ed Towns and Jake McKenzie. And just to prove that he really is one of Chicago's hardest comedians working, Hall will be back at Laugh Factory later the same night for BYOB Podcast Live with some seriously excellent stand-up comic guests.

March 2: Sebastian Maniscalco: Stay Hungry Tour at Chicago Theatre

Last year Arlington Heights native Sebastian Maniscalco made the Forbes list of the world's highest-paid comedians for the first time, and accepted the accomplishment with humility and honest concern for the future: "I know things are good, but I'd hate to make the F…

The Jingle Bell Run/Walk aka The Trail Run You Didn't Know Chicago Had

It snowed all night. And it snowed all morning. And, as I write this, it is still snowing. In short, it's pretty snowy out there in Chicago right now. This morning - along with a number of other people who didn't know whether to be excited or concerned about all the snow - I ran the Jingle Bell Run/Walk for Arthritis.

And as the title of this blog implies, it was way more than just a typical Chicago road/sidewalk/Lakefront Trail race:
