Running Night

Went for a short one tonight, a small jaunt through the northeast part of Normal. Crossed Veteran's Parkway on College, through a subdivision and a cornfield (?!) to the Four Seasons Fitness Center. A nice, non profit organization that has everything from yoga to spinning to basketball to free weights. I look forward to getting back in physical shape to play basketball again. My membership starts on Tuesday.
What I did tonight was run a song, walk a song, run a song, etc. It was my night to get into shape I guess.

Running songs
"I'll Take Care of You/It's A Man's, Man's Man's Man's World"-Van Morrison time 16:15
"Another Man Down"-Heartsfield time 10:15
"Samba De Sausalita"-Santana time 3:34
"The End"-The Doors time 11:46
"Reach Out I'll Be There"-Four Tops 3:06
"Inna Gadda Da Vida"-Iron Butterfly 17:10

Walking songs
"Factory"-Bruce Springsteen time 2:19
"The Air That I Breathe"-Hollies time 4:12
"You're All I Need To Get By"-Marvin Gaye 2:40
"And The Grass Wont Pay No Mind"-Neil Diamond 3:32
"All The Right Reasons"-Jayhawks 3:25
"Rhumba Girl"-Nicolette Larson 3:49
"I Need You"-Beatles 2:31

Well, you get the idea. It was an absolute perfect night to be outside, crisp and cool about 68 in B/N. It reminded me of walking home from the drive in theatre late in the summer. Lovely evening stroll.

Dude, excellent taste you have by including "And The Grass Won't Pay No Mind" on your iPod. Mark Lindsay of Paul Revere & The Raiders did a version of that song circa. 1970-71 that I just love--one of my favorite AM pop songs from the early '70s.

Look for a long-overdue Neil Diamond tribute on my blog very soon...
