Running In Stereo

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!

Twasn't easy to wake up so early but I managed and as soon as I'm done with this, I'm a-goin' back to bed for awhile. I'm so tired but I'm glad I ran. I think May was my best month ever (definitely the best in the last eight months) but now I want June to be the new best ever. That's gonna take some work... and I'd better work on getting my runs in when I'm not so frickin' tired. Holy crap. Once again, my butt was draggin' on the way to the trail. I think I was asleep while I stretched and the pace I set for myself was rather slow and quite possibly I was asleep while running, too. Not really but seriously I was! Wet trail from rain last night but not much worse than a dewey morning. I'm not sure how I accomplished 27 minutes though. Somehow I did and now I'm wiped out -- soon time for more sleep.
