Race the Music

The one where I share my awful taste in music!!!

Sometimes, not always, I like to listen to music when I’m running.  My lovely husband bought me some Aftershokz bone conduction headphones for Christmas which are great for when I’m out on a run as I can still hear what’s going on around me.

One of the reasons for writing this blog is so that some time in the future I can look back and see how I got on, or show my girls how tough but enjoyable training was.  But the purpose of this post is to remind me of the songs I ran to!

I much prefer making my own playlist than listening to a mix CD prepared by someone else.  I’m not sure there are any other mixes out there that include the theme tunes to The Fall Guy and Baywatch, some 70’s disco, 90’s pop and recent chart hits!  I love the different beats and speeds of the songs and sometimes find myself belting out Mr Blue Sky or I am What I Am!!!

But maybe there is a good reason no one else has put all these songs together!!!!

  1. My kind of list 🙂 One glaring omission though, where’s your s club 7??? Reach up for the stars is essential every five miles. Then the last time you hear it you’ll be nearly at the end …
