That's a Wrap for May

No music this Sunday.
I've been workin' on tomorrow's tunes and...

here ya go, have a sample...

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!

What a... horrible(?) way to end the month? Or better than nothing? Better than nothing, right, Babe? Perhaps. It was sooo hot... and I did run twice as long as I planned... but I still don't feel right about it.

My plan was to run just 5 minutes... or I'd pick 1 song about that long and that would be it for May. Had I gotten to sleep early last night and woken up early this morning, I coulda had a regular run... but that didn't go so well. Actually it didn't go at all. Oh well. So the 5-minute plan was in place. Fine. I decided on Franklin's Tower by BK3 a couple nights ago -- 10 minutes and 5 seconds. Plus I had nearly 25 minutes walking to and from the trail so it wasn't a horrible outing. I just really want TEN FULL RUNS. Oh well. Next month, June -- 10 FULL RUNS! I'm not gonna set a goal now 'cause I don't know if I just want to beat May or go for Five Hours. We'll see. In any case, man, I am glad I'm back 'cause that, for just 10 minutes, wasn't easy. I had nearly all my energy, it seemed, sucked out of me within 2 minutes of running. Somehow I put it into auto-pilot and cruised at a slow pace but this kind of temperature I most definitely am not used to. Whew. God Bless air-conditioning!

Hey Zoooma, I'm looking forward to tomorrow's post. Thanks for checking out my blog. I had a great time in New York City and next time I go I'll have to check out those different places you recommended. Anyway, I've been working in the darkroom printing photos all weekend and it has been very nice to listen to some great tunes. Thanks for all that you do!
