Quinn + Tonik Vol. 59: The Pasta Got To Us...

 
A determined, disciplined, finely-tuned machine made it around the New York City marathon course in a little over two hours today. Yet further testament to the amazing feats humans can accomplish through genetic blessing, epigenetic transformation, and disciplined training.
 
While we take our hat off to these giants of mental and physical fortitude, today we're going to celebrate the fuel oft cited as the best for athletic prowess, when in fact it could hardly be further from the truth.
 
For those with an interest in what seems to be the empirical truth to transforming endurance performance go have a read of Phil Maffetone's musings.
 
For the rest of us, perhaps scroll through in order, make the necessary preparations, and join us first on the path of excess.
 
Those who survive will have made it to the Palace of Wisdom.

close shaves: get one

 
First up, get yourself a proper shave. Executed by someone with the right tools. And who has practiced the fine art of razor perfection to a level of elevation you will never attain.
 
Our man in Miami, for example.
 
Failing that get yours out and give it a swish around your face anyway.

shirts: join the club

 

Once you've had your whiskers tidied up donning a perfectly constructed Egyptian cotton shirt made in Italy is your next move. Slip it on, take the mother of pearl buttons in hand and fasten it up.

 

GET SHIRTS

Ensuring first that your collar stays have been inserted.

GET YOUR COLLAR STAYS

Then grab your jeans, and wallet. And get ready for the fun part.

 

 

GET DENIM

GET A WALLET

drink: something special

 
Finally, make a reservation for dinner at your favourite Italian restaurant, or make yourself a bowl of the good stuff.
 
Invite the Mrs, a date, friends, or anyone else you can discuss your belly button fluff, the state of the nation, and the genius and madness of Elon Musk with.
 
And most of all, enjoy yourself.
 
Crack open a bottle of something special, and overload on those carbs. Even if you don't have a marathon to run tomorrow...

“the direct route isn’t always the best one” We've had a lot of time to think about this as we've just driven across Africa in a car that averages 50mph on a good day. 14 hours of trundling along through the middle of nowhere gives time for reflection. Time to think about how lucky [...]

HAPPY LABOR DAY. Apparently we're not supposed to wear white hereafter. But no one seems to be able to explain why. When asked by our buddy Danny Agnew at Inside Hook, "What do you think of the 'no white pants after Labor Day' rule? For it? Against it? [...]
