Got some CDs in the mail from wordsephemeral today, very pleased. Thank you C, I’m glad I saved my run for later—these are all coming with me! I’m in the process of putting together an appropriate mix for you ;)

Anyone else want to swap mix tapes? If you’re skittish about mailings, grooveshark.com is a great way to put together playlists and share them with others. I’m always on the lookout for something new to listen to; I’ve been doing a lot of cross-state driving lately, to see my ill grandmother, so long playlists are especially appreciated.

Tumblr Crushes:

Some of them don’t know I exist and it’s unrequited, one sided love.

love your blog!! you're amazing, i started doing yoga only because of you hahaha! my question: i love to run. but i always run in the evenings. but i just can't run in the morning, it seems like i don't have any endurance at all. i get up at like 5.30 am, have a little breakfast (toast, fruit, something like that), wait for at least half an hour after meal and then i try to run but i'm soooo bad at it in the mornings. what can i do? i have more time in the morning so it's a pity i can't run then

Hi anon!

(1) Thanks, (2) Thanks, (3) That’s spectacular!!

And…

(4) Whenever you have time to run is the best time to run :)

(5) I used to be terrible at running in the mornings. Actually, I wouldn’t call it running. More like stumbling around like I forgot to put my glasses on and had a hangover. Running in the morning is a lot different than running any other time of the day, ‘cause you’re not warmed up physically or mentally. (On a side note, doing yoga in the morning is also different than at any other time of the day.) You’ll initially have to focus on different aspects of the running, like breathing and where you’re placing your feet, rather than time and distance. I mean, you can’t expect to have the same level of fitness just climbing out of bed as later in the day, if you’ve always been training later in the day, eh?

I’m sure Chris would have more to say about this subject? (He’s a real BA runner… He can knock out 20 miles in one go, and I can hardly run 20 miles in a week! And I imagine he must run early in the morning…)

But not a fruitless run; you covered the whole distance one way or another. Pat yourself on the back about that. And then forget your disappointment, okay? :-) It’s done and you’re still alive and haven’t put on 50 pounds.

*pat*pat* :D It was supposed to be 8 miles today :D I’m proud just thinking I can achieve that distance!

Yeah, that’s pretty annoying isn’t it? I just read a book until it goes away.
