Thursday's Triathlon Workout (2/17/05)

The Windy City is living up to its name today and the sunshine is remarkably deceptive. It's a cold, raw, perfect day for a 45-minute Zone 1-2 run. Nothing special; just one of those slow, aerobic runs that ya gotta do to work on form and build a base for the longer runs to come.

A reader of an earlier post commented on hearing Lil Ed & the Blues Imperials at the New Orleans JazzFest. Lil Ed's scorching slide guiter is legendary on the Chicago blues scene. Add the Blues Imperials, one of the fiercest backing bands in blues history, and you're set for an incendiary evening. Several years ago, Lil Ed played a street festival a block from my house. Imagine heading out of your driveway, turning right and coming face to face with a blues legend. It doesn't get any better...

Man, I gotta go find those Lil Ed cd's and get 'em loaded on the iPod. Thanks for the reminder!
