I just wanted to share with you what an ipod looks like after you wash and dry it...please take my word for it and don't try this at home! As I pressed the buttons with a prayer in my heart and my fingers crossed...nothing happened! The next thought that crossed my mind as I was crying out loud and saying things like "I can't ever have anything!" I thought how hard running my long run on Saturday was going to be without my tunes! I mean 9 miles people...no tunes!!! So as Saturday is here and I decided to run on the mill and not the roads, because it's icy, I have to say that I was ok with the blue wall and I found some tunes on CMT. Now most of the country music that was on the tube wasn't fast pace but that's ok as I was only doing 5 MPH (which is a 12 minute mile) it only took 1:42:35 to do the 9 miles! So if I stay the same and don't improve any I should be able to run the half marathon well under 3 hours! I mean 13.1 miles is really looking doable right now.
We watched "Ultra-marathon Man 50 marathons, 50 states, 50 days" last night (I know, bless my husbands heart!) and I gotta tell ya, I'm just not that crazy yet! However, it was pretty crazy to rent the thing and watch it! I noticed that Ultra-marathon man didn't run with an ipod, so maybe I'm going to be alright without one. Naaaa! I get motivated with music and know myself well enough to know I need something. I have a Boombox but don't think my time or shoulder would be at it's best with that monster sitting on me!
