I am not done changing
Out on the run, changing
Sometimes I wonder if she'll be the one
When I am done changing
- John Mayer

Long workweek in Boston but I did get outside for a two mile run tonight.

Good morning

I lied to you. I lied to you.
I lied to your face in the summer
You had long hair then
I'm coming back from the dead
- Bleachers

I ran a 5k on this beautiful morning in 38:40 or around 12:20 min miles. According to the website though, it was 11:20 so I'm going with that. I did the mountain yesterday for the first time this fall and brought fat dog along so I could carry her. But not. She's just not up for the long hikes anymore and she needed many breaks. But also it was rather warm. On thurs I did 3.5 around the lake, 3 on Tues and 2 on Monday. I always do better when I'm busy and what with having decided to sell my house last Friday and selling it Thursday and buying a new house yesterday, I've been rather busy. So excited I'm finally going to see It with baby girl today.

When the heat gets hot

So I've been too anxious to get out on the lake route after work- so I did it this week. 3 miles at 5pm on Tues at 108 degrees. Yeah it was kinda miserable but wonderful at the same time. There's always a little breeze blowing around the lake. Yesterday I did 3.5 at 6p, walked the last 1.5, and went over two bridges and was rewarded with this view. And it was only 103 and in the shade.

Lord knows I still ain't rich
And I wear the same old jeans
But the rocks that they keep throwing are the ones that build my dreams
- Life of Dillon

Two god awful miles on the treadmill tonight.

It counts goddamn you

Tonight after two margaritas I went for a 5 mile power walk around a lake under the Texas moon.

I don't recommend running

After Texas BBQ. Just something to keep in mind based on my experience tonight. It would be a blessing if farts actually worked as propulsion.

Every time you're feelin empty
You better thank your lucky stars
Cause if you ever felt one breaking
You'd never want a heart ❤️

Flowers keep on flowerin
- Roger Clyne

Three more today and I was quite a bit more tires than the last two days but I picked some beautiful sunflowers and now I'm going fishing with my new rod and bait!

Lake song. Again.

Now we arise
To curse these these young suburban villains and their ill-begotten children from the lawn
- Decemberists, Lake Song

This line always makes me laugh and this is one of my most favorite songs, particularly apropos this weekend as I run around the lake. 3 yesterday and 3 today. Feeling stronger baby.

Come to me now
And on the station wagon window set the ghosts of your two footprints that they might
Haunt me when you're gone
And when the light grew dawn
You were forever gone

The drowned

Tell me now, tell me this
A forest's son, a river's daughter
Our ghosts will wander all of the water
- Decemberists

Gym again tonight at 8pm and 2.5 on tready. I'll take it.

Precious bones

If you call, then let me pass
You may render me a wreck when I come back
So calm your waves, and slow the churn
And you may have my precious bones on my return
- Decemberists, Annan Water

This is the only band I've listened to since Travelers' Rest several weeks ago (note the apostrophe). It's kind of an obsession. I so love his vocabulary. So tonight is the second night in a row I've actually gone to the gym. I'm feeling good about that. The treadmill isn't so bad when I've had a good suck on my inhaler. I can get my heart rate up to 160 and still get all the air I want, like gulping great mouthfuls of cold water. So 2.5 tonight at inclines.
