2014-05-11 - Music Everywhere with Stephanie

~19 miles @ ~14.5 min/mi

Coney Count = 2 (unique rabbits, not double-counting the one that was spotted twice) as we trek at ultra race pace on tired legs around her favorite neighborhood loops. A lady pushing a stroller passes us in the first mile, as do countless runners along Rock Creek and the Bethesda Trolley Trail. Dr Fonda listens patiently as Dr ^z lectures interminably on neuroscience, Fourier analysis, Fordyce's angiokeratoma, the meaning of Shakespeare's Sonnet XVI, etc., with naughty confessional asides and a bonus pause to photograph a flattened snake. Stephanie recommends slow training to avoid "shredding" one's body. "Do I want to get shredded or ripped?" I ask faux-naïvely. We take turns observing "Music Everywhere", adapting Dr Kristin's mantra ("Notice the Music!") to the sounds of the day's journey. Runkeeper and Garmin tell the tale of route and pace.
