Oh wow, I must be official. I added a running category. Hmm...I feel all strong and like I need to pick a race to run with Rachel somewhere near the ocean. Oh my! Did I just type that out loud?!
I do, after all, have new running shoes. And the Nike + iPod thing that now tracks my time, distance, and pace. It is so cool. Knowing I have a computer chip thing in my shoe that talks to the iPod in my hand makes me feel kinda like the Bionic Woman.
(Aren't they pretty? All silver and red?)
I even have new running duds. New running pants and running shorts to go with the tee-shirt that Toben hunted down for me. (You can't find them anywhere, but he did. I got the last one in Arizona.)
What I listen to while I run depends on how I feel, and so I have a bunch of different running mixes on my iPod.
Here's some of what's on them:
The mixes that Toben has made for me don't have track names on them. One is filled with great 80s music, the other with more recent hip/hop. And, of course, there's always the soundtracks from Glee. And just picking an artist like Kirk Franklin and taking him for a run.
Oh, and I love country music too.
I mix it up quite a bit. And I mix up the mixes on my way out the door, adding and subtracting songs depending on what I want to hear. From time to time, I do listen to sermons, but I like it LOUD so I can't hear myself breathe. And then it feels like whoever is preaching is just yelling at me.
My favorite from this morning's run? Sweet Home Alabama.
