Because it is a matter of tremendous importance, I've decided to share with the world my iTunes play-list for the five-miler I'm going to "compete" in this Saturday morning.  Rock and roll music makes me run reeeeal good.

I  constantly assemble new MP3 playlists to listen to while running.  Now and then, a song from one of those playlists sounds absolutely perfect, to my ears, while I'm out there.  Those songs make the final cut of my Perfect Running Playlist.   This is one of those songs.  #DurlsPRP

The picture on the left is my driver's license photo from about five years ago and the picture on the right is a recent picture.  Sometimes when I have to show ID, people hand it back and ask me funny questions.  Not long ago a woman asked me with genuine concern if I was doing OK.  Sometimes people just say "What happened?"  A lot of the time I just get odd looks.  I've learned to answer briefly with the basic facts.  I say "160 pounds, male pattern baldness, and a few new wrinkles."  People laugh.  My driver's license expires next month.  I'm glad.  I'm tired of looking at the old me every time I open my wallet.

I was thinking about that today... about how I'm not Scott Jurek yet.  I thought, damn, what if if this is as close as I'm gonna get to being Scott Jurek.  2015 me says "Bummer."  2014 me would have said "Who the fuck is Scott Jurek?  And can you pass the butter for this popcorn?"  It's all perspective.

I appreciate the encouragement, +Quintin Kerby

A hiker has survived a black bear attack at the Virginia state park that is very close to my hometown. I grew up near this park and spend a lot of time hiking and running trails there to this day. This attack is somewhat unsettling, because the bear's behavior was atypically aggressive. If you're interested, my pics from the trail and overlook (taken last November) are here: https://goo.gl/muaw0T
A Midlothian woman survived a bear attack Saturday at Douthat State Park in Bath County that left her with 14 stitches in her back and 14 in her leg. An adult female black bear believed to be the attacker was tracked and killed early Sunday.

I would say the number one most dangerous things on the trail are other people.  I'll take my chances with bears, snakes and ticks.  I do not want to run into another person.

Funny, when I first heard the vocals I actually thought about the RHCPs. I'll definitely check out the whole album, that song really resonates with me.

Story
Tagline
I enjoy craft beer and trying to pursue activities that help me stay fairly fit. This dichotomy is as close as I get to having a complex and interesting personality.
Introduction
Formerly morbidly obese guy who, somehow, developed better habits after thirty years of self destruction.  Libertarian, optimist, cynic, humanist, believer, skeptic, deeply conflicted, profoundly alive, lucky, happy.  God or the Universe or whatever has deigned to allow me to meet the three best people I've ever even heard of, and they happen to be my brilliant son, my amazing girlfriend, and my sainted mother. I marvel every day that I get to share my goofy life with the these wonderful people.
Bragging rights
Sometimes I run 3.1 miles at a time without falling down. I also own more than seven DVDs.
