What I’m doing now

My sister and I just ran in the Broad Street Run for the second consecutive year. Some additional thoughts on being back in Philly for the weekend: DiNic’s brisket tastes as good as ever and I’m glad I now live several hours away from the cannoli at Termini Brothers - they’re dangerously good.

I’m working my way through Mike Duncan’s History of Rome podcast, which seems to be a fantastic primer on Rome from its inception through the fall of the Western Roman Empire. I’m realizing how little I know about Rome and its influence on Western civilization, so I’m trying to soak up as much as I can. I’m open to any recommendations for books, podcasts, or documentaries about Rome, so don’t hestiate to share.

I’m playing intramural soccer again for the first time in about three years. It feels great to be back out there.
