Last of the Lost Miles: Ryan Bingham, Cash, Todd Snider, Marshall Crenshaw, Dixie Chicks, Stones

Song For The Soundtrack:
Dylan's Hard Rain
Do 32 runs, 100.56 miles and 27 albums in seven months count as a "regular training program?"

Well, only as much as 4.6 runs and 14.36 miles a month register or about one 3-mile run a week since running the 2014 Columbus Marathon 1/2 Marathon in October.

They may be "Lost Miles," but the music from all 27 albums remains memorable.
