Lansing, MI

You know what people in Michigan don't like? Import cars. Any import car. They also don't like the words "Toyota" and "Honda". So I decided to shock everyone at Connxtions Comedy Club in Lansing, MI with a very funny joke that uses both words. As you can see from the picture, I was waiting for a beer bottle to get thrown at my face.

The weekend was nice because I got to see my friends Jeff and Jill Lenkowski. They are really cool people despite Jeff being an engineer. It was nice that they brought a group of friends to the show, too.

In order to help promote the shows, Demetrius Nicodemus and I did a few morning radio shows in Lansing. It's not often that a radio station takes over an old two-story house and turns a bedroom into the studio, but don't tell that to Michaels in the Morning on 94.9FM.

Two Hours I Won't Be Getting Back

I joined 35,000 people this morning in Indianapolis to run the Mini-Marathon (click for action picture or see another one below).

That name is ridiculous because there is nothing mini about it. The Mini-Marathon is the country's largest half-marathon (13.1 miles) and the eighth largest running event. This event features a lap around the famous track at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway.

The track is huge and I never thought it was going to end. It's a good thing I ate nothing but pasta for three days straight. I finished with a respectable time of 1:55:25. That was good enough to get me 6,005th place overall. I thought that was pretty good until I found out the winner was already back in Kenya.
