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 Morning Run: 26 minutes 20 sec

3 Days Since My Last Run

9:15 a.m. - 72° - nice but WAY too humid

I'm glad I ran this morning only because now it's raining. Not that I can't run in the rain... but it would be messy on the trail I run on. There was a TON of rain yesterday, almost all day long, stopping for ten minutes here and ten there; it went like that for like ever. Today there were several spots I had to jump over and/or go around to avoid maybe slipping in mud. No worries, though, I'm agile. The worst thing was the humidity. It's not even that hot but with humidity at 100%, that made my run pretty yucky, yes, yucky. The energy was sucked from me and while I wasn't gasping for air at the end of my run, I was nearly wiped out. I made it, though, and I added a small amount of time, so I'm feelin' alright.
