Music On…World Off!

I have always loved listening to music.  It can change my mood in an instant; pump me up for the day, or mellow me out after a long day at work. I can completely tune out everything while listening to music. When it comes to running,  I have to listen to music. PERIOD! It can get me through a mile when I didn’t think I could make it any further, and it gives me a boost to run a bit faster.  When we ran the half, it was pouring rain.  Obviously, my phone stayed in the car.  I thought I was going to struggle the entire time.  I have never run without it!  I seriously was stressing out a bit before the race began.  I vaguely remember telling my trainer to sing to me at one point but the scenery was fantastic so we just talked the entire time.  The race took you through a state park and the leaves were beautiful!  So I really didn’t miss my music…surprisingly.  I still can’t train without my music.  I need that motivation.  If I run with my trainer, Lou, we usually talk…but if I am by myself, forget it!  Music is cranked!

I have added a some songs in the last year, but to be honest, I am starting to get sick of some of them.  I need some new music!  I am the product of the 80’s  but have a variety of music on my playlist.  Below is my running playlist…Feel free to comment and tell me some of your favs!  I have a long training schedule in front of me…I need some new motivation and clearly this list won’t get me through 26.2 miles!

Until next time…so long!
