Gotta have my tunes
Some runners enjoy the sounds around them while they run--birds singing, water rushing by in a nearby stream, cars zooming by?? Others enjoy chatting with a running buddy for miles upon miles on that Saturday long run. But others need nothing more than an iPod loaded with a library of their favorite songs. Neither school of thought is wrong, and in fact, music can get you through a funky run, one where you fought to get yourself out the door, and the first mile sucked, and the next wasn't that much better. Crank up some U2, Eye of the Tiger, Elvis Costello, Donnie and Marie (just kidding about that last one), and you're finished with a long run before you know it. What is on your play list?
