Taxi companies fret over impact of Uber, while drivers hope for more money – Whenever I use Uber, I usually end up talking about the service with the driver. One guy in Chicago told me he worked in management for a taxi company, but drove for Uber with his brother-in-law (also a taxi employee) on the side.

The 9 Biggest Reasons to Embrace Solo Running – I'm mostly a solo runner. The only downside to running solo for me is that I'm the only person I get to spend the time with. I don't like myself as much as I do my running partners 100% of the time.
