Peaceful Jog

Most days I get up and go on a quick jog before really starting my day. I don’t think I move fast or far enough to call what I’m doing running so I’ll stick with calling it a jog. I started jogging for the health benefits years ago, but now do it more to clear my head than anything else. Normally while jogging I have something creep into my consciousness. Usually it’s whatever’s the most prominent thing on my mind, like my most recent event and any calls made or not made, an upcoming meeting, or a recent interaction with someone. I’ve noticed the more at peace I am with myself the more trivial my thoughts when jogging.

Recently my jogging thoughts were about out of bounds at Worlds. Given I care about out of bounds none as little as possible without offending my bosses, life must be good. I hope it stays this way.

UCA College Nationals 2015

Last weekend I went to UCA College Nationals. Alabama had a great performance and won. Kentucky didn’t and finished 3rd. Kentucky’s dance team also finished 3rd which I believe is one of their highest finishes.

Earphones

I need new earphones. I’ve gone through several sets in the past couple of years ranging from the 2 different ones that have come with iPhones, to Bose, to Klipsch, to Yurbuds, to Shure, with only the Shure making it over 15 months. I’m looking for something that is comfortable enough to leave in my ears for 12 hours at a time, will stay in my ears while running, and has iPhone controls. If you have any suggestions please let me know.
