I had lots of time to listen to music on my ipod yesterday during the Gasparilla Half Marathon...2 hours and 14 minutes to be exact. (Look for a full race post later in the week.) I had to skip some of the songs because I just wasn't in the mood for them. I love running with music but sometimes in a race when I'm running at an uncomfortable pace
Does anyone else ever feel that way?
One of the songs that played (that I didn't skip) while I was running was Madonna's Lucky Star. This song brings back childhood memories of dance routines with my sisters in our front room and a star ornament pinned to the ceiling. We wore old slip dresses, bounced on a small trampoline and even did some breakdance spins in our routines. It was the early-mid 80s!
Another song that brings back memories for my youngest son and I is Welcome to the Black Parade by My Chemical Romance. Everyday on the way home from preschool he requested this song and a couple of others. It got to the point that I had to create a special "Dylan" playlist with his 5 favorite songs. I'd start the playlist, put the windows down and blast the music. He loved it (and so did the kids in our carpool)! We would all go crazy at about 1:48 when the song's tempo picked up.
