indy monumental


Monument (Official Music Video) by MUTEMATH

From Paul: We feel so fortunate to have met Charles “LaLa” Evans when we did. He is the living embodiment of not only our song “Monument,” but everything we aspired to write about for this whole new album. We are so honored that he allowed us the opportunity to share his simple yet profound story of an enduring love through our song’s music video. It’s the first time we’ve ever attempted anything like this, but we felt like this was a once in a lifetime opportunity to make a documentary-style music video highlighting the life of a very special soul who might not have otherwise had their story told. We sincerely hope you enjoy and are able to take away the same joy and inspiration that we were upon getting to meet this wonderful man.


Tumblrs, at least.

So, Michael and I are heading up to Indy on November 3rd to spectate the shit out of this.

I’m going to rip off the greatest cheerleader I know and represent with a “Do Epic Shit” sign and scream and cowbell my head off cheering for the fastest bastard I know (not to mention a non-Tumblr friend…apparently I have those?).

Anyone wanna join? :D


Last year I ran the Indy monumental half marathon on my 23rd birthday. I decided that day that I was going to run the marathon next year.

Tomorrow I’ll run the marathon on my last day as a 23-year-old. I think it’s a cool way to get to begin and end a year.

The weather is definitely looking less than ideal right now. It was snowing pretty hard on the way home from dinner, and it’s super windy. But it’s not supposed to be rainy/snowy tomorrow, so that’s a plus. And I don’t need perfect weather to enjoy my first marathon anyway. =)

P.s. If you want to track me tomorrow, shoot me a message and I’ll send you a link. You need my last name to sign up, and even though it’s not too hard to figure these things out, I’d rather not blatantly post it here.
