The elephant is dead

I started subscribing to Rhapsody’s “To Go” service recently (which I had to buy a fancy new MP3 player in order to use — a review of that coming eventually). Suffice it to say that I love the service. For fifteen bucks a month I can download to my player 95% of the tracks on Rhapsody. Whee!

Anyway, in addition to music they also offer comedy downloads. I downloaded a couple of albums by the late, great Bill Hicks and came across this gem this morning. Although it was recorded after the 1992 presidential elections, it’s strangely resonant of what’s happened over the past couple of days. Made me laugh, anyway.

Faster easy runs

Woo hoo! I’ve been tracking my pace for various different training runs. Since I started tracking things in April, my easy run pace has finally averaged well below 10:00 per mile. It’s at 9:50 now, down from 10:50 last month.

Again, woo hoo!
