Balls to the Walls! 15K Here I Come!

Posted Nov 04 2011 11:31pm

What’s your one characteristic that could classify as the employee-interview-what-could-you-improve-on-question that you want to turn from a negative question to a positive question? You all know what I’m talking about here. Mine is that I run at 100 miles an hour. I am a balls-to-the-walls, if I’m going to do it, I’m going to do it ALL out! 100%. No looking back! And I choose to take on a lot. This often leads to me running in a million directions at 100 miles per hour on a regular basis. There are worse things right? Better to be over motivated than under-motivated in my opinion! Winking smile

What better way to kick off a balls to the walls fitness filled holiday season with a 15K run tomorrow morning!? Couldn’t think of any better way! I am taking part in the 15K Hot Chocolate Run through downtown Chicago! I am so psyched. And by the way my VBL’ers, you are all awesome at guessing. Either that or I’m not as mysterious as I thought! Smile with tongue out A bunch of you guessed I’d be taking part in a race, run, or triathalon of some sort. One of you even guessed the Hot Chocolate Race specifically – Go girl! Although she also guessed I’d be taking part in the after race hot chocolate treat – which I will not. No sugar for this girl. I’ll be bringing my wonderful chocolate protein shake instead. Kill joy? Maybe in some eyes – but for me, it’s just what my little heart desires! Open-mouthed smile

I got myself an-I’m-still-cool-fanny pack runner’s pack to put my protein powder, BCAA chews, keys, money, chapstick, extra hair ties, and all that good stuff in. I also updated my playlist and added it to my phone so I don’t have to have my phone AND my mp3 player on me.

Here are some songs and artists that made the cut!

  • Katy Perry
  • Skrillex Remixes
  • Natasha Bedingfield
  • Flo Rida
  • Freestyle
  • Buckcherry
  • Manian – Ravers in the UK – Thanks Julie!
  • Taio Cruz – Dynamite
  • Fall out boy – Sugar we’re goin’ down
  • Gonna make you sweat
  • Justin Timberlake
  • DJ Laz
  • Rev Theory
  • La Roux – Bulletproof
  • Jason Aldean
  • Darius Rucker

I know – MAJOR music diversification huh!? Smile with tongue out

Still haven’t decided if I’ll run with or sans (I’m thinking sans…) music, but better prepared with a super fun new playlist just in case!

So pumped to run! (And to see one of my best friends I’ll be running with – my ultramarathoner friend Ewelina that I introduced to you after the air and water show at the end of the summer!) I will see you on the other side of the finish line! Can’t wait to give you all a recap! Open-mouthed smile
