Running Playlist

Hello lovely readers! My apologies for my absence of late. Between my actual vacation, my mom and my sister visiting for ten days, and my bit of a hectic return to work....well, No Disassemble Charlie No. 5 had to take a little time on the back burner. Never fear...we're back!!!!

Something's fun on the horizon: The Chestnut Hill Reservoir 5k will be here in a mere fifteen days. I'm pretty excited about this race! I can walk to it from my house, as it is at the reservoir where I always run. It's a absolutely GORGEOUS place to run!! That being said, I really don't LIKE to run. I am learning to LOVE to run though...if that makes any sense. I love when I get to the point when my mind goes blank, I love that I'm doing that LAST possible form of exercise I'd EVER thought I'd be doing. That being said, how do I bridge the gab from "like" to "love"? Very simple: MUSIC!

That's it folks!!! Does my list line up with any of yours? Is there anything awesome I'm missing? Anything you're stealing from me? Let me know in the comments!


  1. I have not been able to progress past hate to run and just wishing for it all to be over with yet. I have Titanium on my list. That is the first "pop" song I heard when we got here last summer- it was pretty popular and on constant replay on the radio. So, it reminds me of the excitement of arriving in a new country not sure what lay ahead. I forgot about Pour some Sugar On Me.. I think I will have to steal that one- good memories with that one. I have a lot of Zumba songs on my playlist because they make me want to dance, which distracts me from the running.

  2. I've always enjoyed "Because We Can" from the Moulin Rouge soundtrack. It's got a grat beat that gets me to ramp back up instead of slowing down!

  3. Not quite sure why I haven't seen before, your blog is amazing.
