I've still never run outside so the race will be my first time. eeek!
I did my very best on the treadmill and I had to walk more than I had hoped.
I'm counting on what everyone seems to say: that the crowd & the live bands will move me farther, faster than I go on the treadmill alone in the gym.
Here's my tried & true running playlist.
You can listen to it on Spotify here.
*Disclosure: not the best lyrics, but the best beats for getting (& keeping) my booty moving.
Waka Waka is so fun; it's hard not to sing out loud.
(Have you ever heard anyone sing out loud at the gym?) God, I'd just love if everyone broke into a routine; I pictured it often when I first started. Hey, treadmill running is booooring.
And Stronger is a sure-fire "push me when I want to stop" pick.
You can listen to my warm up/cool down playlist here on Spotify. I use it for walking at any pace & stretching so it's quite a tempo mix. I'm going to trust you not to warm up with Fix You.
I was hoping to find a movie with a female runner girl to inspire me tonight, but I haven't thought of a good one. Think: The Devil Wears Prada, swap running for fashion.
The most notable running scene I've seen lately is George Clooney running in boat shoes in The Descendants. Perfectly hilarious & pathetic all at the same time. He talks about how it came to be here.
how did you push yourself past your comfort zone
& are now so glad you did?
