Run to it

Run to it

There are lots of songs out there that people love to run to because they have these really fast beats that fill you with the desire to make those miles your bitch. I’m pretty sure not many people would think to throw Blind Melon’s mellow, hippie dippy “No Rain” into that category. So maybe that … Continue reading

Playlist: We’re Gonna Go Far!

Okay, so I’ve mentioned that I am not immune to just enjoying a little early 2000s pop music. It’s been well documented that I’m actually a huge Decemberists fan. Re-listening to the Decemberists reminded me how 75% or more of their songs involve violence against women in the form of rape or murder. Robin Thicke … Continue reading

So, um, it’s cold. I’ve been out of Minnesota for two whole winters now so 29 degrees is back to being freaking freezing as opposed to positively balmy.

Before you ask, I don’t know a word of Korean and when a friend offered to translate I said “No, let’s keep the mystery alive.” It’s been stuck in my head ever since and I’ve added it to my running playlist.

Body Movin’

Music is an integral part of my long runs. Short runs. In-between runs. I know some people abhor the idea of listening to music (“but I love the sound of my feet rhythmically carrying me long distances!”) and others who will put on their headphones despite their inability to hear oncoming traffic and the obvious … Continue reading
