Ipod Shuffle, 15 laps w/ track cat

I added a lap last night and was tailed by a cat I'll call Nike The Track Cat. One guy did intense sprints on the field and was a blur of elbows and knees, shadow-boxing in the endzone at the end of each. A trio of large ladies were walking and talking. And an enormous oblong nectarine moon rose above the ridge during Daniel Lanois' song "Todos Santos." Dropped me down a level to a desert floor under the local water table. And later it occurred to me, I'm running three 5 K's a week, why not run a real one? The Beatles "It's All Too Much" kicked things off--a song of a certain kind of melodic noisiness that is very low-fi, not that different from a Swell Maps number. One of my favorites, a real freak out.
