keep running

I want to preface this post by saying if you have the means, donations can be made to the Boston One Fund to assist those affected by the tragedy.

This past Tuesday I ran a memorial 5k (4.5 miles actually) organized by the amazing Kier Byrnes Freedom Runners.

While waiting for the run to begin I was interviewed by a writer for Runner’s World, article here.

(You can also read an article about the event here.)

This was a breathtaking run… very cathartic. I love my city. I love my fellow runners.


I saw the post for the memorial run on Twitter and felt compelled to join. Before arriving I hastily designed and printed out a few bibs; unfortunately, I didn’t have enough for the hundreds that turned out.

Due to the response I thought I would post the bib design.

Please feel free to download and share this PDF. Just print, trim and pin.

I ended up having two runs on Tuesday logging in around eight miles. My knees were killing me… but something about the air, the sun setting… the Charles River… it didn’t matter.

Anyway, thanks for reading.

    Howdy, David! I think you and I may be twins separated at birth. Designers. Musicians. Runners. Whoa.

    I love your bib and I’m giving it a shout out on my site! And in general I love your creativity! The music, movie, design… it’s almost too much to handle!

    Keep on running. Keep on rockin’.
