#TuesdayTalk with artist manager Savi Shrivastava

You can take the woman out of music but you can't take the music out of the woman.

I am training for my first race (never took part in any races, any) right now. It's a 10K race at the Customs Half Marathon this month-end. If you're a marathoner reading this, 10K isn't long by any stretch.
