Diana asked what might be on my 2012 Playlist ... so let me ask you, what running songs should I include on my playlist for the year-so-far next Thursday?
Distance: 15.25 miles
Route: Heights Fifteen
Duration: 2 hr. 15 min.
Very busy, this boy, on the workfront. Touring, deadlines, creative writing (or editing) with a promise, and always, homecare. Recently I have been waking at roughly 3 AM to be just barely awake. The wife notices I fidget, but then so do I. It's not alcohol, because I have not been drinking any. It's just whatever is rolling around my head.
1. Breakfast on Richmond with Peter GabrielTemperature: 39º
2. Gust of wind on Green Rd. knocked one of my feet against the other in an intersection, almost wiped out.
3. Pre-occupied by world affairs on Belvoir, almost hit by a speeding car.
4. Charging into wind on Cedar only made me smile, knowing it would be to my back on Euclid and Monticello.
5. Stopped to seriously tighten my laces. Goodness, my shoes were loose, no wonder I have foot problems.
6. Original plan was to run through Lakeview Cemetery, but I arrived about five minutes before the opened the gate. I know this because the Euclid Avenue entrance was open by the time I passed there.
A. THINGS THAT TROUBLE ME ON LONG RUNS:
Wind, runny nose, cold hands.
B. THINGS THAT DO NOT TROUBLE ME ON LONG RUNS:
Energy, strength, hydration, because I take care of these things.
Climate: cool, dry w/gusts of wind
Weight: 165.5 lbs.
Snack: banana, cereal bar & fruit leather
The last several days I have eaten a lot of cookies.
