Hey sports fans, this runner is starting to make some progress! I know most of my posts regarding my running have been kind of meh, but I've pushed through the injuries and self-doubt and feel pretty good about my chances of survival on August 25. I feel so good apparently, that I've agreed to run a leg of the Akron marathon for my brother-in-law come late September (Yikes!). I've been running on the road, on treadmills, on trails, and I'm up to 2-3 miles. Albeit they are only 9-10 minute miles, but, I'm pretty proud of the fact that I didn't give up back when I was barely running half a mile, and my body was falling apart.
I've had fun rediscovering some old running music. Some of the stuff I was listening to, I've found, doesn't set a very good pace. Some songs that work with my pace are: The Presidents of the United States of America "Lump" & "Peaches" and Nirvanna "Molly's Lips" & "Son of a Gun". What are some other upbeat songs for a child of the 90s with a runner's time signature?
