Good afternoon run, meet ipod.

The first few years of running I listened to an ipod. I wasn’t very fast and was always running solo on the team. There were both people far in front of me and people far behind me. I think¬† I mainly used the ipod to drown out the sound of my breathing. I didn’t like to hear how tired I was.

Here in Cape I will have someone to run with daily but I do like my runs by myself sometimes. It’s nice to run at your pace and just worry about yourself. A few days ago I made a large playlist full of upbeat music. I think I will bring back running with an ipod for my longer solo runs and see how I like it. I always ran faster when listening to an ipod containing fast songs. If anything it will keep me entertained.

Do you like running with music?

hello

The Biggest Loser is soo good! I just love it so much!

Ran 3.7 miles today. Did about a half mile warm up and then a 3.2 run.

Mile 1: 9:02
Mile 2: 9:12
Mile 3: 8:25
.21: 1:48

As you can tell I stopped talking at mile 3. I also get a new burst of energy after completing multiple miles. That’s why 5ks I feel are too short for me.

This weekend I’m doing the extreme cross country race in columbia. It’s got mud pits, things to climb over, things to jump and I think things to crawl under. It says its a 4+ mile run, so we’ll see. I’m real excited! You’re also supposed to dress in a costume, but I have no idea!!!

If anyone has any ideas let me know!
