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!
Wednesday Run: 19 minutes 42 seconds
+ 2:08

3:35 p.m. - 76° & overcast (i.e. delightfully not sunny to help keep the temp low!)
August: 2 hours 39 min
July:2 hours 11 min
June:1 hour 47 min
May:4 hrs 46 min

Finally a day when the severely hot temperatures (90° +) are not present here in the South Carolina Lowcountry. Holy freakin' crap, what horrendous weather there usually is in the summertime. It's technically still summer and so when the high temp is only 76
°, that's pretty nice -- a relief.

And when the temperature is so low it makes it easier for me to run. Today's run was a breeze and a half. As I neared my End Cue, I knew I could keep running. With wicked hot temps, that practically never the case. Hopefully there won't be any more 90's and I can begin to get back to running 20+ minutes every time out. We'll see, I guess.

Dire Straits - Brothers In Arms (1985)Dire Straits

Brothers In Arms

So Far Away
Money For Nothing
Walk Of Life
Your Latest Trick
Why Worry?
Ride Across The River
This Man's Too Strong
One World
Brothers In Arms
Once upon a time the Dire Straits hit it big... really big. International success, MTV video awards, a Grammy or two maybe... and this was the album that did it. Before Brothers In Arms they had a video or two on MTV, maybe had a few songs on the radio in the U.S., but this album truly launched them.

And also once upon a time I had this album along with a Greatest Hits collection of theirs. Good stuff that I always dug listening to. It's fascinating, though, how bands can come and go even after so much success. After Money For Nothing and Walk of Life, the Dire Straits just weren't big again here in the United States. Why? Beats me. Doesn't matter, I guess.

First time I've heard these songs in just about forever and after all these years it's still a pretty cool listen.

I want my, I want my, I want my MTV....

Don't you remember "Sultans of Swing"? That was a huge hit in '79. And "Skateaway" followed in 1980. Then there was "Industrial Disease" in 1983 or so, and also "Twistin' by the Pool" in 84. They were pretty big, at least where I lived in New England.

Glad to meet a fellow Deadhead. ;)

one says one number and the other another
but they were set at the same time. Hmmm...
