Cool Runnings
Wednesday, February 25, 2009
Lately I've been trying to exercise more, and often find myself on the treadmill. Which is weird, because I hate running. Running is boring. But I need to work on my cardio - so I culled some of the fastest, most upbeat songs from my iTunes and put them on a running-specific playlist. I just throw my iPod into shuffle mode and get moving - which is ironic because when I "run," I mostly just shuffle. Maybe someday I'll be a speedy gazelle just like Prefontaine himself. Ahem.

Until then, here it is, in all its bizarre glory.

Feel free to chime in (via the comment board) if you feel there's something missing.

That is, unless you're going to mention the total lack of AC/DC, to which point I would say, YES you are right! I need to remember to borrow Sean's CDs so I can get some tracks into my computer, but until then, there won't be any AC/DC on my playlist. Because the band refuses to put their music on iTunes, choosing instead to sell out exclusive distribution rights to Wal*Mart and the like. So I am forced to run without Thunderstruck, my favorite AC/DC song. Which would be PERFECT for running.
