Running Playlist

I am completely and utterly blown away at the response to my I Am A Runner post. Even as I wrote it, I could feel the adrenalin pumping, but I thought I was probably a little bit crazy. Then the comments started to pour in, and I was completely overwhelmed by how my post resonated with so many.  And I thought, maybe I’m not so crazy to be excited about this after all.

I went out running in my new shoes on Saturday, and they felt WONDERFUL. I can’t believe I was running in those worn out sneakers I picked up years ago at a discount shoe store.  I can’t wait to go out again, probably tomorrow.  Oh!  Oh!  I also downloaded a Pedometer app to my Palm Pre so now I can see exactly how far I’m going and how long I’m running and all that jazz.  How cool is THAT!?

Many of you have requested my playlist, so here goes. Now mind you, some of these lyrics are a bit um, questionable, but these are the tunes that pump me up and carry me through when I want. to. quit. so. bad. I’m also not going to bother with links and all that jazz. I have design work beating down my door, which is a GREAT thing, but I need to give that my full attention this afternoon. So without further ado…
