I did the Vail Hill Climb. It hurt like hell, harder than Mt Evans in a way because it's steeper shorter and faster. 7.6 miles with 2,400 ft of elevation gain. 8:35 pace, 1st in age. Good bench mark because men's masters an women's overall champs from Mt. Washington were there and I held my own.
The coyote - doesn't play nicely

Coyote, wow!!

Six days after a grueling trail half marathon, I dipped my toes back into sprint workouts with 6 x 150m repeats at the track, @ 80% top speed (after 20 mins plot warmups).  Some young locals (in their 30s and 40s) have been trash talking at our Wednesday all-comers track meets, so this old guy needs to put them in their place.
Summer sucks.

Lately, the music feed over the PA at the gym has been SiriusXM's "Pop Rocks"

https://www.siriusxm.com/PopRocks

Quote
Rock songs from the 90s and 2000s that became big pop hits.

Artists You'll Hear
The Killers, Coldplay, Sheryl Crow, Third Eye Blind, Goo Goo Dolls, Train, No Doubt, Dave Matthews Band, Weezer, Green Day


D'Wife & I were both in the weights area [I was half-watching the Russia/Croatia match, knowing at although they were behind 2-1, Russia would eventually tie, then win on the shootout, because it was all fixed]. She came over to tell me something so we both took our headphones out

In mid-sentence, she said "Oh I like this song" She's kinda like Dory from Finding Nemo in that way

I listened for a second and identified the tune as

Soul Asylum - Runaway Train


"This is one of his best songs, I think" she continued

I wasn't familiar with any solo career by Dave Pimer, and in the moment, I couldn't even think of another Soul Asylum tune

"Well, it's really a 'them'" I corrected

"Yeah, yeah yeah, I know" D'Wife gruffed, "Why do you always have to correct me?"

As I was trying to respond tactfully, she added the missing piece of the "Name that Tune" puzzle

"Anyway, other than 'Freefallin' ..."

I had to stop her right there

"Wait, wait, wait!!!" the brakes skidded "You think this is ... Tom Petty?"

"It's not?"

"It's Soul Asylum. 1990-something. '92, maybe?"

"Ohhhhhh," I could see her flipping back to some old MTV memory, and realizing, 'Yep. He's right. As always'

"Well, fuck you, Mr. Jeopardy!"
