Social Run & Mumford & Sons Concert

Last night was pretty epic.  The Mumford & Sons concert was amazing.  We had lawn seats to this sold out show, which is nice cause I could wander around (and dance around).  I couldn’t believe how many friends I ran into at the show.  Sooo many, and many of which I hadn’t seen in months or years.  My sis came to town for it, my mystery brother made a rare appearance, and even the ‘rents were there (thanks to them for driving, btw).  Here’s a few of the pics:

It was a beautiful night with beautiful people.  Funny thing is that when I went to the gym today, I was pretty dang sore.  I don’t know if it was the combination of a week’s worth of workouts, all the dancing, staying up past my bed time, the tailgate chips and brews, or a combo of all of em.  My whole body was pretty achy breaky.  I’m hoping it goes away at tonight’s social run.  A bunch of friends will be at the social run too, and I hope to run with them and shake out the soreness.  If I can do that, guess what the next day is…Rest Day, what what!

Anyways, the show really was amazing.  The crowd stood up the entire concert.  Nobody sat down.  The band even did a few songs acoustically with one mic, and the whole audience had to shush to hear them…and guess what…they actually did shush!  I couldn’t believe out of all those thousands and thousands of people who were drinking funny things and smoking funny things, nobody was jerking it up by making a bunch of noise during that set.

Of course, they ended the final encore with The Cave, which I still sing in my head when I run sometimes, it really gets me going.

Check em out if you get a chance!

Peace out internet!

Morning Crud Run & Mumford & Sons

I don’t know what happened on my run this morning.  Was to be an easy 5 miles, but man did I feel like crud.  I was sore and tired all over.  So weird how you can change like that from day to day.  Yesterday I felt decent on my run.  Today not decent.  Here’s hoping I’ll be back to decent tomorrow.  Oh well, I still pushed through and got it done, that’s what counts right?  Per uge, I was dripping with sweat and covered in gnats by the end.  I’m still waiting for those fall temps to come!

Anyways, I’m glad I got it done because tonight we’re going to the Mumford and Sons concert.  Twas supposed to be a few months back but they had to cancel the day of the concert due to one of the band members undergoing emergency brain surgery.  Luckily he’s all better now and so the band is making up the dates they missed.

This will be the second time I’ve seen them.  First was a couple years ago.  I knew their music myself, but since I don’t usually listen to pop radio, I had no idea that lots of other people like them too.  I assumed they were a small indie band that not many people knew – I learned otherwise when I went to buy tix and they were completely sold out!  Luckily luckily luckily my friend is a radio DJ here in Dallas and she was able to hook me up with a free pair the day of the show – score!

Admission: $0.00

Now they’re back, and in an even bigger venue that sold out within minutes.  It should be a blast.  My sis came to town for it, and we’ve got a lot of other friends and families going to the show.  BTW, if you haven’t seen their latest video, it is High Larious!  Check it below.

BTW, I’ve pretty much given up listening to music when I run, but when I did, I could always count on “The Cave” to pick up my pace!
