I’ll give it all I’ve got

13 May 2011

When I die, when I die
I’ll rot
But when I live, when I live
I’ll give it all I’ve got

I went to see Sufjan Stevens at the Royal Festival Hall last night (excellent review of it here) which simultaneously ruined, and made, my run this morning. Ruined because it was so gloriously long I didn’t get home until midnight, and made because my plodding steps were soundtracked by all of last night’s lyrics recurring in my brain like so many mantras.

It’s a long life, only one last chance
Couldn’t get much better, do you wanna dance?

It was a pretty dire run, to be honest, but my mood is still so elevated from the concert that it counts as ‘ho-hum’ rather than bad. I am not going to disclose how many times I stopped to walk. Instead, here’s a lovely photo of the playing field I ran past at about 6.45am.

if I was crying
in the van, with my friend
it was for freedom
from myself and from the land

    Sounds like a great place to be during a long run. Hope to be in that zone tomorrow morning.
