Behind the Music: Bjorn Turock....

Nothing says rock 'n roll like sensible shoes and short shorts. With this in mind, I've set my sights on the Seattle Rock 'n Roll Marathon in June.

With just a few months to prepare, I've gotta say I'm a little nervous. The running part is no problem. Build base miles, add in some tempo runs and speed work, increase mileage, taper. Got it.

What I'm wondering is, can I really hope to hang with a bunch of bad-ass rockers for 26 miles? I mean, the bright lights, the groupies, the piles of coke. It's not my typical Saturday.

My wife is making a much more reasonable decision and doing the half-marathon. But again I worry... will we grow apart because of all my extra time on the road? And if we do make it, are we ready to live in the spotlight of rock 'n roll superstardom?

Stay tuned...

StevenCX - So I hear! This is where I hope my bandmates can pull me out of the dark place. Nobody said fame was gonna be easy.
