mouth breathing.

Two Fridays ago I had a mini-personal catastrophe.

A little background to this story woould be that I'm essentially "living" in two domiciles at the moment, the house I share with my BFFAEAEAE Kath, and Manfriend's. I always leave something somewhat vital to my existence at one place when I leave for the other. It's sad how disorganized I've become, really, considering how OCD I am about everything in my life.

Anyway, after work on that fateful Friday, I drove straight to the park to go for my run.

AND I didn't have my ipod.

I really, truly, almost had a meltdown. I just can't, CAN NOT listen to the sound of my own breathing when I run. I don't know how in the hell I made it through cross country and track in high school in the old days before people ran with ipods. I really don't. If I listen to myself breathe, I psyche myself out and start imagining how long it would be until someone found me if I collapsed where I am... etc. I have an active imagination.

It's really pretty sad how dependant I am on BEATZ to get me through my fitness practice unless I have someone running with me, but what can I say? I am hooked.

Anyway, I'm always looking for new songs to add to the mix, and if you are too, feel free to use any on the list below. AAAAAAAlso, please feel free to send some suggestions, my musical apptitude admittedly isn't what it once was.

BUT, I was never that cool, so what difference does it make?!?!!!

But, maybe don't judge me if you happen to spot a Hilary Duff song on the list below... please.

In other news, I just got a 130 point work in words with friends!!!!!! Boom.


  1. We have a bit of overlap in our workout mixes (agreed - nothing worse than forgetting the iPod) and I'm totally stealing some of yours to add to mine. Because my workout mixes start to annoy me after not too long (when I start associating them with hard work).

  2. Right? It's getting to the point that I can feel Run This Town in my abs everytime it comes on... time to switch it up a bit.
