In which I break my new phone

Death and All of His Friends

About a tenth of a mile after the five mile mark, I tripped on a crack in the sidewalk and went flying. I was able to break my fall with my brand new iPhone 5, which now has a little gouge on its top left corner.

Nothing gold can stay.

Here are the tracks I heard on my run:
Holiday – Green Day
Airplanes Pt 2 (featuring Hayley Williams & Eminem) – B.O.B.
Celebrity Skin – Hole
What’d I Say – Ray Charles
Death and All His Friends – Coldplay
I’ve Been Everywhere – Johnny Cash
99 Problems – Jay-Z
Magdalena – Brandon Flowers
Goodbye In Gasoline – Less Than Jake
Light of Day (live) – Bruce Springsteen
Surrender – Cheap Trick
