In two weeks I have to run a half marathon. Actually, it’s only 20km but that’s far enough as far as I am concerned. It will be my 5th appearance in the Klondike Road Relay from Skagway, AK to Whitehorse.
I used to sort of like running. I got a sense of accomplishment out of it and I often felt good after a run. These things do sometimes still happen but I spend more time not wanting to run than I do actually enjoying the after-effects.
I have been saying that this is my last year for the KRR. I’m guessing that my friend Julie will try and hold me to that.
In the meantime, I have rediscovered running with music and it seems to help. I need to put together 2 hours and 15 minutes of awesome running tunes together. Can you help? I’ve got a few core tunes I’d like to include and yeah, they’re of the pop variety. I’m definitely not into mellow yoga music while running (Ben is – isn’t that cah-rayzee?!). So a couple of Lady Gaga’s tunes (Bad Romance is my fave), some Jay-Z (Empire State of Mind) and Jessie J (Price Tag). Don’t Judge! Music along the lines of The Be Good Tanyas (Light Enough to Travel) or The Killers (All These Things that I’ve Done) might also do the trick. Can you help me come up with more. Please?
