Running in the Rain

This morning (read afternoon) I awoke to a lethargic beginning (read middle) of the day. Watching the end of the unexpectedly sloppy and exciting Steelers-Vikings game brought an exciting beginning to the day. The two cheese bagels that followed were something of a downer (greasy stuff man!).

So to the shower! Almost convinced myself to forgo a run in favor of a nice warm shower and afternoon of relaxation. Mental toughness prevailed and I ran 3 miles, and was promptly rewarded with this trio of uplifting sings to charge my progress:

  1. The Who - Baba O'riley
  2. Flight of the Conchords - If that's what you're into
  3. Bob Dylan - Like a Rolling Stone
That was a most epic beginning to my run and a welcome substitute to attempting to run on the strength of singing in my head, and somewhat more sane feeling.

A weekend of victory, one of many lately......

10/24/09 - Beermat vs CD

Recovery day today, hence the homebody picture. But an enjoyable evening out at the Sounders regular season finale (not pictured). A 2-1 home win puts them in a good position in the playoff shake up and a continuation of winning ways gives hope.

10/23/09 - Showbox SoDo

A good night out, watched a friend of a friends band - the Invisible Giants. They were pretty good and the random and enjoyable night out before, during and after was a welcome exercise in excellence.

10/22/09 - Security?

Saw these two shifty looking high-vis vest wearers today on 3rd near the bus tunnel entrance.....needless to say they warped the world around them while I snapped a covert pic.

Muse of the Run: How awesome is it that someone figured out how to record sounds onto a cassette tape............yeah there's a simple explanation sure, but thinking about it in terms of your voice on a strip of material feeding through reels...brilliant!

10/18/09 - Haloween ON!

Sweet pumpkins carved by myself and Pete!!

10/09 - Hotel Seattle Library

You can checkout any time you like, but you can never leave....

Thus ends my pretence of doing this daily. I'll still do it, but I feel less and less compelled to do it every day.

10/5/09 - Morning Commute

The ethereal beauty of the fall morning. The moon hasn't been chased from the scene and the sun is not quite en situe.....brilliant!

10/4/09 - Re-Flect-OR!

Hey, my faucet looked kinda shiny this evening. This keeps me ticking along nicely ;)

10/3/09 - Self Portrait

Is this arrogant or desperate*??? Who can say....I thought it looked funny enough.

*probably both

10/02/09 - Water Standpipe....

I thought these looked stylish, and there was an odd one out.

10/1/09 - The Courthouse (Now with vacant block adjacent!!)

One of the cooler looking buildings in downtown Seattle.....I kind of wish they'd do something with this empty lot.....but times are hard or something?

9/30/09 - Keyboard

Has unexpectedly become the linchpin of so many peoples lives.....

9/29/09 - Reflective Coffee Table

The title tells the story really...and its not the cleanest, but was making a neat effect.

9/28/09 - Time Passes On

And leaves behind those things that cannot last. They fall as the detritus of the universe. Into obscurity.

9/27/09 - Blue Sky...Reprise

Its becoming less and less common, but managed to grab a snap of blue sky!
