How cool am I? Well I’ll tell you. I’m so cool, that I first heard about Spotify from my MOTHER! haha! When I made the switch from the iPhone to the Galaxy, my biggest complaint was that I didn’t have access to itunes anymore through my phone. So, I resorted to listening to Pandora during my runs and prayed that it wouldn’t cut out on me. One day my mom told me about how she was planning on using Spotify to create a running playlist for a race she was doing. I signed up for it and instantly became a playlist making machine.
One of the topics that I was kind of “meh” about in reference to the marathon, was whether or not I should run with earbuds. I didn’t want to miss out on the whole experience. I’ve been a spectator at the marathon so I know what the crowd support is like there and with it being my first time, I wanted to take it all in. When I posted my dilemma on Facebook, a few of my fellow marathon runner friends suggested making a playlist and listening to music with just one earbud or listening to it very low. Crowd support will only get you so far, and there is a dead spot on the course where crowd support isn’t as lively as it is in Boystown-which by the way is when most of my Gaga & Britney will be played 🙂
Right now, what gets me going is Applause by Gaga, Work B!tch by Britney and Give it to U. What’s currently on your workout playlist? Do you prefer to run with music or just your thoughts? 🙂
