Running Tunes

I am happy to report today’s conference was much better than yesterday! No exciting store openings though. Though I fear being boring, I was so exhausted that I turned to the freezer for dinner.

I pulled out my favorite standby Lean Cuisine: Tortilla Crusted Fish with Mexican rice.

And some corn nuggets on the side. That’s the last of them – no more freaky nugget-fied veggies 🙂

That didn’t quite cut it for me, so I snacked on some Frosted Mini-Wheats cereal with milk for “dessert”. (I might have broken into the husband’s cereal stash….)



It’s playlist time!!! I’m getting to make a playlist for my half marathon so I don’t have to worry about switching through songs I don’t like. Or super slow sad ones.

Some frequent players from training:

“Welcome Home” Coheed & Cambria

“Get Outta My Way” Carolina Rain

“Glamorous” Fergie

“Here it Goes Again” Ok Go

“Face Down” The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus

“Snow (Hey Oh)” Red Hot Chili Peppers

“You Give Love a Bad Name” Bon Jovi

“I Stand Alone” Godsmack



I have trouble picking songs to run to because I get caught up in listening to the music instead of picking good, upbeat, motivating songs.


What’s your favorite running song?! Ready go…

    I don’t actually listen to music when I run . Don’t want to risk dropping my Iphone! Need to invest in some sort of cheap mp3 now I guess 😦

    My rule of thumb is that if it makes me want to dance like an idiot, then it is good to go for the playlist 🙂

    Guilty pleasures include Britney Spears, Lady Gaga, Rhiana, Miley Cyrus, and Michael Jackson.

    1. That is one of my fave lean cuisine too!

    2. My latest favorites include lots of Black Eyed Peas, Lady Gaga and ummmm… Metallica!

    Good luck in your race 🙂

    I heard this song on The Real World and am obsessed with it while I”m running – Through Telescopes by Colour Academy.

    Britney Spears – 3 and CALL ON ME – the dance version. I cannot tell you how many times I hit repeat on my ipod during my half marathon – I think I listened to it 4 times.

    Oh I love a lot of those songs!!!

    Britney Spears and Lady Gaga are my running buddies… their songs are awesome to run to. You can pick any song on Lady Gaga’s latest CD and it will be perfect for running 🙂

    I like one of Jordan Sparks songs, but I can’t remember the title…all I remember is “how do you expect me to just breathe?” I always thought it was appropriate for the hard workouts and somehow it kept me going. 😉

    For some reason, Paperthin Hymn by Anberlin gets me pretty pumped while running. Probably the nice rhythm and beat and the fact that it plays louder than all of the other songs on my shuffle.

    I do need more variety in my music though.

    Anything with a hard beat and something that you can run in pace with is usually something I approve of. 😀

    that was my problem with picking out running music too. i’m always like “i love this song” rather than “this song will get me through some tough miles”
