The face of raw….

September 8, 2008

So, here is the boy.  He is raw.  Not raw sex, raw porn, raw sex porn…nope he is a 100% raw foodist,  He is a wonderful person.  Full of life and information.  He loves to teach me all about raw.  He took me to my first raw restaurant.  It was very lovely.  He is very raw.  He is a model.  Check out his blog rawmodel.

What i love about Anthony is, he does not have a model personality.  Ok, well he is the only model i know but he is not full of himself nor does he brag that he once had his face on a bill board in Times Square for the store Target.  He, in fact hardly talks about his modeling career.  In his words “it just pays the bills”.  

Unfortunately, he is not a runner.  Says his knees hurt.  So, instead he “works out” whatever that means.  He cracks me up, tells me when i am watching a movie in the evening i should stand up and either run in place for an hour or lift 5 lb weights.  I’m all like yo dude, when i watch a movie i am in bed, half naked with a tub of icecream and a spoon.  He laughs.  Giggles is more like it.

We do not see each other as often as i’d like.  He spent the summer in his hometown of MN working on his dream permaculture project.  He had a dream and basically made it happen.  He wants to be able to live off the land and not worry so much about obtaining his food from a grocery store.  It just doesn’t work for him. Yes, i know its a crazy thought but it can be done.  He did it.   Check this out weeding and eating.

You can read all about his permaculture project on his blog.

So, i’m still out there pounding the pavement.  I only took 2 days off since i finished my streak and honestly i am tired.  I feel very sluggish out there.   Try as i might, i’m slow.  Do i need more rest days?  Probably.  Will i rest?  Probably not.  

The weather today was magnificent.  Crystal clear blue sky, not a cloud to be seen.  Just lovely!!  I cannot believe i did a 13.18 mile.  It doesn’t seem possible to me.
