I did a 5K!

Running For the Sake of Running

I’ve always been athletic. That may be an exaggeration. I’ve often enjoyed being active. Yes, that’s more like it. Though I’ve never been into running per se,…

My name’s Becke and this is my blog about life, travel and making a difference out there. I talk about the stuff we aren't supposed to talk about and about the stuff we all want. Having made a mess of my life (pretty much so far) I decided to turn things around, document a bit for posterity. Because posterity will surely care.

  • A temple at Chichen Itza. The pyramid and the ball court may get all the hype but there's a nifty ruin around every tree grove on this complex.
