Day 311

By my (admittedly) rough estimate I’ve walked some 933 miles so far this year, but it’s not too late to post what may be my all-time favorite walking song, The Proclaimers’ – I’m Gonna Be (500 Miles).

Driving down to the beach with Melissa I made her crazy listening to it 3 times in succession — “No, Melissa, you were talking! We have to start it over!” —  and while you may think that says more about me than about the music, I challenge you to load it onto your iPod, go out walking, and listen to it just once!

(A note: heaver is a Scotch word for “talking rubbish.” In the context of the song — some drinking is mentioned —  I always thought they were talking about puking. I like the song even more now that’s been clarified!)
