Coming out from Hibernation

The warmth is finally here and I have started my early morning and late night runs.  Oh my it has been a while!  The first time out I thought I was going to die, but now 3 weeks in, I’m back into my regular rhythm.

I have never had a desire to train for a race, I’m a lone rider and love running when no one is about except the birds and the early morning rays of sunshine (I sometimes run like Phoebe and Rachel from Friends, so it’s a good thing for humanity that nobody can see me).

It feels so great to breathe in the cool air, run through sprinklers, smell the flowers, and get my body out of its long winter hibernation.  Sometimes I run in silence when I want some peace and just to enjoy the morning, but most the time I need to blast my ipod to get me going.

Here’s my quick 30 minute crazy-energizing/cheesy/gangsta mix that is guaranteed to make you move!

"baby" remix -justin Beiber/ludacris (i got the fever)
"imma be" -black eyed peas
"when i get you alone" -glee cast
"e.t." -katy perry/kayne west
"firework"-katy perry
"animal" -neon trees
"tonight"-enrique eglesias
"just can't get enough" -black eyed peas
"f'in perfect"-pink

the husband just warned me that I should preface that I buy the "clean" versions
...I am so naive!
