16 years after releasing one of my favorite albums ever, Neutral Milk Hotel finally came to Detroit this week and I was able to go see them last night. One of the best concerts I've ever seen (right up there with lead singer Jeff Mangum's solo show I saw last winter). Photos and recordings were strictly prohibited so I have to settle for this video from a couple weeks ago on the same tour:
I used up my discount from the chambray Doyle pre-order on the steel blue tweed sportcoat and now fall cannot arrive fast enough. I'd love to see some trousers offered in the same fabrics, preferably in the Rudy fit...
9.6 miles this morning with two 3 mile intervals below 8 minutes/mile each. I ran past a massive 1920s Tudor house with about 5 acres of property and a gigantic stone wall all the way around the property and a gatehouse that looks larger than 2 of my houses combined and got curious as to who owns it. I looked it up in the public property tax records thinking maybe it was somebody I had heard of (locally famous lawyer or doctor, or maybe the head of some big company) but I...
5.4 slow, easy miles this morning. The temps were in the low 50s. After our epically long and cold winter, we have really been blessed with great running weather since then.
Doesn't Texas have some sort of program where if you graduate in the top 10% of your high school class, you are automatically admitted into any state school (so I guess UT or A&M)? If that's true, maybe that would be an incentive to sticking around in a less desirable district if, like many believe, more of her performance comes down to the family life and her support system. Of course, who knows what sort of admission standards they will have by the time she graduates...
8.8 miles this morning with 10 half mile intervals mixed in there.
I had 5 miles this morning and then a bunch of 20 second sprints. It was absolutely pouring on me the entire time I was out there. I don't mind the rain but it does sort of depress me when I look at the weather radar before I start running and the only place it's raining in about a 200 mile radius is my neighborhood. Sometimes, Mother Nature is a jerk.I've never been out to that part of country but the elevation profile for that 50k looks much more challenging than I would...
A bit under 10 miles this morning. I went looking for a Frank Lloyd Wright house in the dark in a slightyl unfamiliar neighborhood near me and ended up running about a quarter mile up a hilly, winding dirt road only to realize it wasn't a road at all but somebody's driveway, I decided, "in for a penny, in for a pound" so I continued up the driveway until I got to the house. When I got to the end of the driveway there was a new-ish looking Rolls Royce, Mercedes G-Wagon, and...
Today was supposed to be a rest day but the weather after work was too nice to not get out for a run. I got in a bit over 6 miles in temps in the high 60s with no humidity. You don't get many July evenings like that around here.
I have some casual NESC from a local retailer and from J. Press and they seem to be pretty consistent. Hmmm... Maybe I should use this as an excuse to buy some more from a third and fourth retailer to test this hypothesis.
