Music And My First GIVEAWAY!!! CLOSED

Today am appreciating music! I ran without my iPod today. I ran with a friend, and we chatted instead! Or I should say tried to chat....this run was harder then the usual.  I'm blaming it on not having my iPod :)  So I totally appreciate having music in my ears to tune out my breathing, and keep me movin!!!
Or it could have been the fact that I ran in this weather!!! It was cold, my ears were stinging, and I had a hard time breathing. I powered through it though and our run stats ended up at
Distance:  3.03 mi
Time:  39:05
Avg Pace:  12:53/mi
Avg. Speed:  4.7 mph
Max Speed:  8.7 mph
Thanks to Julies awesome garmin!!!
I so need one of those. My birthday is in June and that is on the top of my list :)

Now on to the GIVEAWAY :)
Because I talked about music today, I wanted to host a  giveaway that will keep you motivated. $15 iTunes gift card!!!!! I know that when my iPod has fresh new music it totally keeps me motivated and moving :)

Love it! :) Great idea for a giveaway :)
My fave song to run to right now is 'Soul Sister' by Train, it's such a refreshing song. I try to time it right in the middle of my run, helps me to breath and focus.

I love to run to Miley Cyrus- Party in the USA :)

Julie said...

Satellite by Dave Matthews. I love it. I missed my iPod today too--maybe we're going to have to have one-ear iPod runs so we can talk when we want and get into rhythm with our music too. Music is SO motivating!!!

Oh, to pick a fave song is sooo difficult...I'll go with Fighter by Christina Aguilera...sort of a theme song for me! Oh and I've run without my iPod before and it's been a disaster. I hate listening to my breathing.

Suzanne Lancaster said...

Fergalicious baby! "Fergalicious definition make them boys go LOCO"! I'll sing it to you on your next run - no ipod needed :) I like dancing while I run too - it might even give you a BETTER workout!

I don't usually run with music, but when I'm having a bad run, Tubthumping by Chumbawumba helps me pick up the pace every time.

My favorite running song would be Roll It by Shontelle. I'm a huge fan of little known singers and it's a fantastic song to run to. You should check it out.
