Eyes be closed
My mini-break was good. I got plenty of rest and ate enough treats to fatten me up. This week is all about running in the trails and feeling fresh, no workouts, no extra stuff. The real grind starts Monday morning with our first workout, 14 weeks out from race day on October 16th. This year it seems as though the hype is much bigger than it was at this time last year. Having 6+ guys chase the Olympic standard from Canada will do that, especially since we proved last year that we can actually hit the standard. And of course, once again, there is speculation on breaking Jerome Drayton’s long standing (1975) record of 2:10:08.
I’ve been glued to the TV, watching Le Tour every morning (and no, I didn’t plan for my first marathon workout to be on a rest day, just a nice coincidence). One of the commercials that I’ve seen a lot is for HTC phones and they use the same song (Lovely Allen by Holy F) that I used when screwing around with some running footage from Kenya a couple months back. Seeing the commercial inspired me to publish the clip. I can’t take credit for discovering the song though, I first saw it in my friend’s skate video (Flatspot promo) a couple of years back (the song later got removed for not being authorized).
Here’s my next pick for a song to be used in a commercial. Eyes be Closed by Washed Out (released two days ago on iTunes).
