A quick jaunt around the cemetery. I was running and chewing gum! Dangerous, perhaps - I didn't think about it, I had already set out and thought hey, I still have that bit of gum in my mouth. Went a long way to quench my thirst. And thought I looked cool, working that jaw.

That's quite an interesting playlist. Do you listen to music to inspire your, or just keep you entertained while you run?

Ooh - got to inspire, got to. So much of it has to do with pace, I don't think my lists are terribly eclectic. Lots of electronic music, not much rock - because rock generally isn't very fast.

Before you read the post, I had neglected to * the first two entries. That means that song was right in my sweet spot that day - or just above it and pushed me faster. La Femme d'Argent is kind of a dreamy, laid-back song, but its BPM is perfect for me.

Do you listen while running? What's your story?

'Run, Fatboy Run' is a fun movie. It has grown on me since I saw it last year. (I've only seen it the one time but I think about it a lot, so that means something right there.)
