I’ll accept your challenge, Riccelli

I got an unusual news release yesterday from state Rep. Marcus Riccelli.

Riccelli, D-Spokane, announced that his New Year’s resolution is to run Bloomsday. He challenged me to do the same.

“Today, the first day of the new year, I am committing to running Bloomsday in 2014 and am challenging Spokesman-Review reporter Jonathan Brunt to do the same,” Riccelli said in a new release before mocking the eating and exercise habits of politicians and journalists. “I think that both of us can set a good example for our colleagues and the public by participating in Bloomsday.”

I was too busy watching my alma mater win the Rose Bowl to respond immediately.
