I don't exercise. Occasionally, I get on a kick where I go to the gym or ride my recumbent bike for a few weeks, but basically, I'm a lazy beyotch.
Apparently, there's a whole lot of people who enjoy running, and do it for fun.
Last year, approximately 67,000 people came to Sydney for the City to Surf Race. It's a 14 kilometre race from downtown Sydney to Bondi Beach. We went to check it out, and we stayed because there was a rockin' band called "Phallica" playing on the balcony of the Golden Sheaf Hotel. Note to non-Australians: in Australia, a "hotel" is not necessarily a place with rooms to stay in; they refer to regular, old bars you get hammered at "hotels". This one, is of the latter.
The music in the video I filmed (below) is Phallica live. In the background, you'll see our grocery store, Woolworths. Yep, it's pretty shocking to move across the world and find out you have to buy groceries at Woolworths, I'm still hesitant every time I go in there.
At 32 seconds into the video push pause.
What the fuck is that??? If you have any idea please clue me in.

Here's some photos of the band and the runners.
The lead runners trickling in.
The people who couldn't run fast enough to be in front. Freaking slowpokes.
This Saturday morning is City to Surf 2008. I'll be watching the runners do their thing again while I digest my eggs benedict, listen to the band, and try to keep my children from being trampled.
