Don't Judge Me...

or my music just enjoy us both! There is usually a reason I like a particular song, whether it be the beat, the lyrics or who is singing it. Some of these songs help me relax on a long run, some help me keep a pace and some get me pumped up. I can promise some WILL make your legs move faster...even if for only a second! If a few songs seem slow--they are-- I put them there because on half-marathons, and I'm pretty sure it will be similar for the marathon, its very easy to get all pumped up and start off too fast. I learned my first time around that is a BIG the slower paced songs I purposely put on in the beginning.
