I am the type of person who insists on paying for music, which means I end up spending $10-15 each time I make a new race playlist. With my current half-marathon goal in full swing (I’ll be doing the Blue Gray Half in Gettysburg this coming weekend) and my ever changing music tastes, I was not looking forward to running to the same music every time but I also don’t want to pay money every time I want a new song.
Cue my new addiction: Spotify Premium. I don’t know why it took me so long to get into this, but there’s no turning back now. For $10/month, I can listen to ANY SONG I WANT ANYTIME I WANT IT. Insanity.
So far, it’s been well worth it. I was able to listen to all the songs from Glee from The Quarterback so I could easily cry myself to sleep after watching it (if you haven’t seen it yet, watch it alone….if you don’t, you will be judged for sobbing) and it was clutch during Saturday’s 10 mile run. Nothing makes me move quite as fast as Katy Perry’s “Roar.”
Speaking of, the 10 miler didn’t completely suck. While I’m still nervous about the half this weekend because of the hills, I’m 99.7% sure I won’t die.
As always, my race goals are as follows:
1. Don’t die.
2. Don’t finish last.
