A Very Odd Place for a Shrine
Can you guess what this is? I went on a real photo expedition for the first time in too long today. More to come from this.
As for the running business, I did it today for the first time since the marathon. I was beginning to get a little twitchy with no physical activity all week. And that was deliberate, to rest from Sunday's punishment. I could feel today the reason for that. My joints hurt! But nothing worrisome I think.
A friend inquired about my marathon playlist, and I figured I'd post it here in case anyone cared. I listen to full albums generally, and when I run long distance it gives me chapters to pass the time and divide things up into chunks. So here are the full albums I listened to during the marathon:
Beirut - Gulag Orkestar - This is becoming my traditional race starting music. It's appropriately dramatic.
The Rural Alberta Advantage - Hometowns
Of Montreal - Hissing Fauna, Are You The Destroyer?
Devin Davis - Lonely People of the World, Unite!
Yeah Yeah Yeahs - It's Blitz!
Heartless Bastards - The Mountain - I skipped through some songs at the very end to get to the last song on this album for the final 100 yards or so. Also quite dramatic.
They Might Be Giants - Flood - I actually only heard a bit of this after the finish line as I stumbled with the crowds. It was there in case I was still running and needed some lighthearted high-energy silliness.
