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!

Bad run. I thought I was well hydrated. I thought I was well fueled. I thought I had plenty of sleep and wasn't tired. But for whatever reason, my body told me to quit and my mind, after fighting it once, quit as well. I gave up after just two songs. Stamp this run with a big fat FAIL. The heat, while not deathly, just wiped me out. I don't think I was prepared for the heat. It sucked the energy out me. As each minutes ticked away, I swear I could feel energy evaporate from my body. So bad. A big fat FAIL.

Oh Babe, you are way to hard on yourself. You got out there, you ran, that is good. It was too hot and you were not up for running as much as you often do, so it was not a great run but you did it. It counts for something. It's better than not even making the effort yes?

No, it sucked. I'm not happy.

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