To Run or Not To Run? Run.

In the news today to bitch and complain about: I don't care. Baseball's on, playoff hockey's on, there's great music to listen to -- screw Washington.

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!

3 Days Since My Last Run

OUTSTANDING RUN!!!! Not really. I was wavering, wanted to run today, didn't want to run today, I'll be just fine putting it off until tomorrow, but that's not what I wanted to do. Tired. Baseball's on TV. Tired. Screw it. But somehow I was suddenly finding myself changing clothes and getting my socks and running shoes on. Huh. Okay. These things I knew: I already had a Playlist ready to go on my mp3 player and I felt fairly well fueled and hydrated. A mystery to me exactly what force got my ass out there but somehow I got out outside, got to the trail and got my run in.

I felt okay, no serious thoughts that I can recall, of wanting to quit, quit, quit. I hate those thoughts! They say: eat donuts and ice cream!!! Get fat! Get diabetes... the government will pay for everything you need! FUCK OFF, GOVERNMENT!!!!!!!!!! So I need to run. Fat is not good. Must be healthy! Plus one of these days I swear I'm gonna run the London Marathon for charity. Hmmm... I think it's next weekend. I don't think I'll get there this year.

Holy crap, what a GREAT album. Really. I love her indie rock sound. From just outside of Glasgow, Scotland, Ms. MacDonald was only 19 when she recorded this, 20 when it was released. Debut album? No way -- her voice sounds so mature. It is her debut and it's full of great song writing and great music. At times her voice sounds a bit Irish, a little Dolores O'Riordan-ish (The Cranberries) while at other times her Scottish accent rings out. That's very sexy and exotic. American accents suck. Listening to a female singer from the UK is something I really dig. This is a cool collection of songs and I'm so glad I've got it... definitely gonna listen more in the future!
