Ben Gibbard Profiled In Runners World

Two things I learned in the past 10 minutes: (1) Runner’s World, a magazine for people who like to run, is a thing that exists, and (2) Ben Gibbard likes to run. The magazine recently profiled the Death Cab For Cutie frontman, who, come to think of it, has been looking way less doughy and more gristly lately. In the interview, Gibbard says convincing stuff about why he likes to run. The accompanying video, sadly, has no footage of Gibbard actually running, which could’ve been hilarious. The footage of him stretching in a recording studio, however, is pretty good. Watch it below.

I love this sentence: “We all know that Flea is in great shape.” Also! Death Cab’s Codes And Keys is out now on Atlantic and available at eMusic.
