Travel Gangnam style
When I land in Seoul, I'll be taking the bus to the Gangnam Station. Helen gave me detailed arrival instructions along with sending this picture:
Of course the first thought that came to mind was the Psy song/video/dance! When Helen first mentioned the "Gangnam Station" to me, my first response was, "Gangnam as in Gangnam Style?" (She probably didn't think it was as funny as I did.)
It turns out that Gangnam means "south of the river" and that it is one of the largest districts in Seoul. Ahhh, the things you learn.
Needless to say, I am thrilled to be traveling to a station with such an easy-to-remember name!
I've historically never used the last shoelace holes in my running shoes. However, my new Saucony Rides are a little on the loose side. For the first time ever, I was using the extra holes via the traditional lacing method.
Talk about timing. This past week, several folks posted this video describing another way to use that last shoelace hole:
Is this how it was really designed to be used? I am going to try this loopty-loop trick and see how it feels. To be continued...
If last weekend's Cinco de Miler wasn't already awesome enough (recap here), I just found out that the race photos are free to download! Here are two of me that came out semi-decent:
