Izzy got the beat!

video
Getting ready for Sunday's Maine Coast Half-Marathon (and one lucky guy), I decided to tweak my playlist to give me the optimal beat to try for a sub-2hour half.

What is kinda funny to me, is that most of the music on this list is not music that I would normally pick to listen to. But for some reason, this popspolotion of tunage just makes me move.

Of course what I would really love is to have Izzy's medley pumping through the zune tomorrow.

But since I can't do that, here is the list...One last thing before the big reveal. There is something a bit odd about sharing these. I mean, whenever I am on the train, I see people with their earbuds in or that one guy with the really big BOSE headphones and think, "I wonder what they are listening to? Is it the news, or a book on tape, or music, what kind? Is the skater boi really listening to Debussy?  Or the suit that sits diagonal from me have Luda's Potion pumping through?"  It seems so private.  But here I am now exposing my list! So if you see me running, I probably have one of these earworms going through my head.  And if you are running near me, you might even hear me sing a few bars. *shudder*

Fank you very much! *taking an Izzy bow*

I always have the same thought on the train and every once in a while, I'll accidently see what the person next to me is listening to and feel both intrigued and like I violated them. Izzy and your playlist are going to keep you motivated to move fast. Good luck tomorrow!
