This song is about hard work and a deep, satisfying fatigue. Rebecca and I wen't down to DC over the weekend to run the annual Cherry Blossom 10 Miler with her sisters. The popular road race was attended by thousands and thousands of runners of all skill levels out to treat themselves to a workout amidst the capitol's famous cherry blossoms at the peak of their bloom. While 10 miles is routine for some runners (like Rebecca's impressive marathoning sisters), this race was out of our comfort zone, and we'd been training for months. We were treated to an absolutely perfect day for an absolutely awesome run. The blossoms were like nothing I've ever seen, and the scent of rebirth on the spring breeze was an inspiration. We ran faster than we thought we would, and finished with wide grins on our faces. This song is a quiet reflection on the hard work we did, and the sore muscles we earned. After you listen to it, get outside, because spring is in the air.


Working hard
On a crowded street
Took a deep deep breath
Now you're digging deep

Lay down
Off your weary feet
In a bright spot
Darling next to me

Chase the sun
And the work redeemed
And a place you earned
And a perfect dream

Lay down
Off your weary feet
In a bright spot
Darling next to me


released April 13, 2015
