I ran it, and I can't say I'd want it to have happened any other way. I'm proud of the time I accomplished for my first race, despite some ridiculously windy race conditions. The people and friends who gave me advice, help, and support along the way deserve the medal as much as I. I don't know exactly when I will run my next race, but I know that it will inform my future.

In Alive Inside, Dan Cohen discovers the life buried within them through music and fights to get that music to individuals within our nation's nursing home system.

Please join us as we remember our co-founder, singer, and board president,
Jeff Dinsmore, who passed away on April 14.

Yesterday in Los Angeles, a wonderful tenor I know from my work as a singer in Philadelphia suffered a heart attack... My heart goes out to each of Jeff Dinsmore's dear friends and colleagues who watched as he passed while working, doing something he loved... My words are but air compared to the life led and now cut short while preparing to premiere a new work to the world. May we all honor the lives now lost by living ours each day.
