Until this breath is over.

Hiya, Harvey.
First long run in a long time. Glorious sunrise trek down through Lakeview Cemetery and up through Little Italy. Dust In The Wind played as I passed Garfield Monument. Good morning, sir.

Temperature: 42° → 52°
Distance: 8.16 miles
Avg Pace: 8.21*

*Remember - that includes running up Mayfield Road through Little Italy. I am a machine.

Baseline: 178.5 lbs.
Today: 165.5 lbs. (-2.0)
Goal: 170 lbs.
Ideal: 165 lbs.

Eight more runs before the 2015 Playlist. Now fielding suggestions. Songs must be released in 2015 or they may have been released earlier if they only entered heavy rotation after January 1st.

Yes, there will be the Uptown Funk.

2006 Playlist - or -
Gabriel & Dresden (Continuous Mix) - Gabriel & Dresden
  1. Let Go
  2. Eleven
  3. Enemy
  4. Dust In The Wind
  5. Mass Repeat
  6. Closer
  7. Not Enough/Amsterdam Interlude
  8. New Path
  9. Sydney
  10. Dangerous Power
  11. Tracking Treasure Down 
Following my first marathon, I found it challenging to resume running. This album was a major motivating factor. I had picked up Tracking Treasure Down during the 2006 training period, and was encouraged to "complete my album".

While the download features 11 individual tracks, it also includes a twelfth, the entire album as one complete mix. With the exception of the bogged-down, Pink Floyd-inspired,, slow, trippy and dull-as-shit Not Enough/Amsterdam Interlude, the entire album kicks ass from start to finish. The last three tracks are particularly awe-inducing.
