Today's Fun Run Music
During the run, while moving across a grassy playing field: "The Color Green" by Rich Mullins
"Be praised for all Your tenderness by these works of Your hands
Suns that rise and rains that fall to bless and bring to life Your land
Look down upon this winter wheat and be glad that You have made
Blue for the sky and the color green that fills these fields with praise"
A good moment to thank God for legs, and running and grass and breathing and air.

From the sublime to the banal. On my cool-down walk around the block:
"Here I Go Again" by Whitesnake. Oh yeah, baby.
"Just another heart in need of rescue.
Never seem to find what I'm looking for.
Dear Lord I pray you give me strength to carry on.
Cause I know what it means
To walk along this lonely street of dreams! (enter crunchy guitar riff!)"
Other than the facts that I wasn't lonely, or on a street (Sage Creek Loop), or altogether dreamy, it really applied to my situation.

And, it also a gives me a smooth segue to send a shout out to my friend Dave Zimmerman, who writes a way cool blog over at IV Press, and who just quoted RATT to me in an email. That guy has got guts!
