The North Face trail running shoe -- good for use in the Appalachian Mountains ... but seriously, they are rather small compared to the Rocky Mountains ... Sierra Nevada are sweet, too.  Would definitely use 'em in the Alps, that's for sure.  One thing's for sure -- Jerry Garcia or Bob Weir or Phil Lesh or Blaise Compaoré probably never went running in Liberia, Burkina Faso, Ouagadougou, Pyongyang, 평양 직할시 조선민주주의인민공화국 平壤直轄市 朝鮮民主主義人民共和國, Türkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Кыргызстан, Киргизия, Uzbekistan, O'zbekiston, Ўзбекистон Республикаси, Tajikistan, Тоҷикистон.  Probably the same with Brent Mydland.  At least that's my gut feeling.  I could be wrong.  I mean, there were a lot of drugs at Grateful Dead shows and the good Lord above, He knows I did my share!
Monday Afternoon Run: 21 minutes 23 seconds
+ 1:01

12:05 a.m. - 75° and overcast, so nice for running!
September:2 hour 18 min
August:2 hours 39 min
July:2 hours 11 min
June:1 hour 47 min
May:4 hours 46 min

The weather is definitely right for running. I wanted a morning run but was too tired... finally I got out there a few hours after I wanted to. Better late than never.

Running tired - not good, not fun. My 21 minutes would have been a freakin' piece o' cake if I was wide awake and had had all the sleep I should have had. But no, I was tired and so the last 10 minutes or so was a chore to get done. All I really wanted to do was quit. I made it, though.

I oughta be asleep right now. Almost fell asleep in the shower when I got back. I spent a good hour and a half out there when I shouldn't have even left the house. Over and hour of hiking and walking to and from the trail so that was some really nice exercise today... and much needed. Now I'm just so tired I don't even care to be typing this. Me needa sleep.

What an amazing band The Clash were. It's not always easy to understand the lyrics here but nearly every song has messages about social situations in the United Kingdom (in the mid to late 1970's.) Disaffected youth needed something to rally around and The Clash worked to unite them for causes that were important. They weren't about anarchy, they were about justice... and perhaps despising the United States a little (or a lot?) The latter is unfortunate but what matters here is they gave us some great music. This debut album may not have any of the band's most commercially popular songs but it's a kick ass listen from start to finish.
