The Day the Music Died…

My MP3 player died today in the middle of my run!!!!!!  Ahhh….  If you’re a runner who needs music to run, you understand the horrible feeling of helplessness when you don’t have access to your music.

Please don’t judge me, if you don’t listen to music or think it’s an awful habit (cause you think real runners don’t need music) I apologize.  I realize it’s not everyone’s cup of tea and it can cause potentially dangerous situations.  However, I don’t play it too loud and am always aware of my surroundings, and I can’t help it… 😦

I’m very thankful to whoever created Best Buy and inexpensive mp3 players! 🙂  I was able to go to Best Buy and return my broken one (seeing as how it was less than 2 months old).  I was so excited to create another playlist!!  Ah, the simple joys of life 😉  Who knew creating a running playlist could make a person’s day?!   My excitement was short lived when the new mp3 player didn’t work either!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!   Back to Best Buy I went…  Third times a charm 🙂

So in celebration of getting a new mp3 player and creating a new playlist I went for another 4+ mile run!  I think I’m getting a little too into running, especially when I ran twice in 1 day just to listen to my music… 🙂

On a side note: I have to say I am incredibly proud of myself (and the hubby).  I’ve been a running fool!!  And he’s been lifting a lot and adding some cardio in there.  I never thought I’d see the day when running 8 miles was a quick and fun thing to do… or the other day I ran 12.5 miles and there was no finish line or medal waiting for me (first time I’ve ran that far without either of those things).  It was just another day 🙂  It has become second nature and I am loving it!!!!!!!!!!!  I’m feeling really good about my upcoming races, training is going better than I thought it would… I’m hoping it stays this way! 🙂

What do you ask is my music of choice???  Here’s my playlist (in no special order):
