An Updated Playlist

Now that I am back on the running wagon, I am updating my playlist. I always like to get ideas from what other people are listening to, so it's only fair that I share mine:

If U Seek Amy - Britney
Last Name - Carrie Underwood (old favorites die hard)
Keeps Gettin' Better - Christina Aguilera
If I Ever Leave This World Alive - Flogging Molly
My Life Would Suck Without You - Kelly Clarkson (she's back, baby!)
Supermassive Black Hole - Muse
I Dare You - Shinedown
Love Story - Taylor Swift
You Oughta Know - Alanis Morissette
Don't Let Me Stop You - Kelly Clarkson
4 Minutes - Justin Timberlake

I'm baaaack....

Yes, I am still alive. Believe it or not.

I took a break from running and, accordingly, my running blog, after a particularly rough 5k on Valentine's Day. During that race I managed to get lost on the poorly marked course, have my Nike+ bite the dust, and lose my favorite headband. I hated every minute of that race, and I decided to take a break from running to evaluate whether I wanted to keep at it.

During that time I tried to stay in shape. I picked up hour long spinning classes at my gym and bought the 30 Day Shred workout DVD (which kicks my ass, by the way). All this was (and is) fine and dandy, but I've started to miss my runs - especially the long runs on Sunday afternoons.

So...I'm baaaack.

And I signed up for my first half-marathon. (July 12th!)
