Running Music (aka Nikki's infinite playlist)

Posted Nov 30 2008 12:21pm
Although I'm quite happy to run without music these days, there's something undeniable about the effect of running to some great tunes.

I pretty much like to run to all kinds of music - fast, slow and everything in between. I admit I listen to some pretty tacky stuff when I run, but it's all about the beat. And sometimes I find that slow songs can be the best, I just run at double time instead.

Tonight however, I won't be running with music, as I'm going to hit the pavement with a friend of mine. Nothing fancy, just a quick 5.5km before I head out to grab sushi to ring in my husband's 30th birthday. Boys are so easy - sushi, Prison Break and Gossip Girl - my husband's idea of a great celebration. And sadly yes, Gossip Girl is HIS show.
