Untitled Country Music Running Post

Who wants a Dead show?

Maybe tomorrow

All I've got for today is my run and yeah, me likes me some Nashville radio-friendly country every so often.

I always get a kick out of people when they talk complain about country music bein' all about cryin' in your beer 'cause your woman run over your dog when she stole your pickup as she was leaving you.

Not quite.

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!

My first run in WAY too long. In my defense, I was sick for about a week. When I go this long, I feel so horrible about myself. I begin to feel like I'm not really caring about my health at all. No exercise at all? You've GOT to be kidding me... I mean, I've got to be kidding myself. Had I let another day go by... and then another, so easily I could've slipped into a normal American slug state of being. Why run? Why exercise? It's a pain in the ass. I could be doing other things. I dunno... I ran and I feel good but I'm so down on myself for going 9 or 10 days between runs. Pathetic.

Because of the length of time since I was last on the trail, I wasn't sure about how long I'd want to attempt. Unfortunately I didn't feel confident in at least matching my last run time of 26 minutes and something seconds . . . didn't feel confident at all and so I chopped off about 3 minutes. CRAP!!!!!! This means I've gotta work my way back up AGAIN. CRAP!!!!!! Damn the human body. Why can't we just eat and drink whatever we want all the time and never gain a pound?!?!?

I'm tellin' ya, Babe -- today, this run, was so important because I was this close to never running again. I don't want go up to 200. I should be working down to 180.

In any case, I feel pretty good but any significant strain won't show itself until tomorrow so we'll see. But I feel good.

Oh, and a wet run it was. The rain was just ever so lightly falling but I was cold -- needed long-sleeve shirt and a light fleece pullover. Still had my shorts!!!

Re: Who wants a Dead show? I do! I do!

Re: Alan Jackson. I'll give him a try because you put him up there. I always lumped him in with all the other modern hacks (like Brooks/Dunn, etc.) Let's see if I can shrug off my "country after the early 1970s is unlistenable" bias.

By the way, my comment word verification was "unpud", is this an omen about AJ?

Anonymous #1 -- the GD and Garcia, etc, that's my love.

Running music, like in this and so many other posts, that's a whole 'nother thing. It's just something to pass the time, in one ear and out the other, sort of. I usually like what I press play on but a lot of it I'll never even listen to again. I have a hard time running to Live GD and so the quest to listen to albums, albums, albums is a bit of an addiction. When it comes to music, I'm not too picky.

Thanks for the comment!

Jimbo! Hey Now! Alan Jackson's some fun country and gives me a pretty good country feel when listening compared to other current country artists who just don't evoke that feeling as well.

Very cool you got out there to enjoy a winter ride in the Idaho winter even in 20 degrees. I'd be skiing and saving the biking for summer but that's just me. Either one -- definitely better with some GD! Thanks for stoppin' by and leaving your comment!

Anonymous #2 -- greetings, friend! Thanks!

No mp3 in that link but...

LOSSLESS GRATEFUL DEAD for 1965 to 1971.

Thanks again!!
