Happy 2015 Rob! Really enjoying the variety of music this afternoon. You still running these days? Went out and ran this morning. I can always count on T.I.E. to provide good, inspiring running music.

Hey there Shelly Ann! Glad you're enjoying the tunes. I haven't been running in a few weeks. For some reason I'm finding the weather too daunting this winter. I was thinking I should have gone this morning. You're tougher than I am!

No, not really--I've signed up for the Winterman 10K on Feb 15--better get at it! Also, my friends that run with me wouldn't like it if I bailed. the T.I.E. music is great for staying inspired indoors on a treadmill. LOVED the Eno-Hyde song from last week--Slow Down, Sit Down and Breathe. Can't wait to hear the one of theirs that I see on the playlist.

Winterman! Good for you! You"ll recall the Eno-Hyde I'm gonna play from Peter B's recent 2014 wrap-up, as I think he alos played it along with "Slow Down...". It's a great track. Possibly my favorite from last year.

Yup, lots of overlap. Also played "Time To Waste It" last week plus DakhaBrakha "Sukhyl Dub", some tracks from The Master, Ondar "Taiga" ... Great minds think alike? Or should i just be worried. ;^)

...or fools seldom differ! I was aware that you and I shared a few favorites last year, but I'm always happy to give the good stuff a little extra airtime!
