First run in June

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!

Miraculously, I was wide awake at a quarter to six this morning and after skipping coffee but having a quick bowl of cereal, I was dressed for running and on my way to the trail. Twas nearly still dark, and the sky was getting light but there was not a glint of sun yet to be shining. Dewey morning and the weeds intruding on the footpath I was on got me nicely mildly soaked. Not pleasant but not terribly bad and I was able to run just fine anyway. I seemed to have just the right amount of energy to huff it along, turn around, and make my way back. My last run in May was a shortened one, meant only to push me above four hours for the month, but here this morning I kicked my time back to where it should be. Onward and upward towards thirty minutes... I'll get there eventually. Now that I'm back inside, showered, and sitting down, I almost want to go for another run.
