List #12 My 5K Playlist

Okay, so no Five Senses Friday today because really it would be all food, or the lack thereof. Feeling – hungry, tasting – lemon juice/maple syrup and cinnamon gum, hearing – the crunch of potato chips that I can’t eat, smelling – oh so many wonderful food smells, seeing – candy bars everywhere I look! Okay, never mind. A short & sweet Five Senses! :) I’m not normally a salty person but I have been craving a lot more salt lately. Probably to offset the maple syrup sweet. If you were to place a bowl of chips next to a bowl of M&Ms, 9 times out of 10 I go for the M&Ms. Unless of course I was at Azul and the chips were accompanied by some roasted corn avocado dip. Yum!! Or Chuy’s with some creamy jalapeno sauce. Oh, Chuy’s, I miss you! Where was I? Oh, yes so if the rest of the cleanse goes as the last one did, while I’m still craving not as healthy things on the cleanse, once I’m off, I usually do much better! For awhile anyway....

Am I the only one super excited for Kona on Saturday?! I am in awe of the Ironman athletes. While I would one day love to do a half Ironman, I am pretty realistic about the fact I will never, ever, ever in a million years do a full. (Exaggerate much? Yes, yes I do.) A full would require a marathon and I have also sworn to never do a marathon (the guy died when he reached Marathon after all!). I will be checking in on the progress of the race throughout the day.

I'm still aiming to make my goal of running 12 5K's, or one 5K a month.  I was really hoping to do the Dawg Dash in October but I'll be out of town. Darn. But I think I now have a few viable 5K options for October. November has been harder because I'll be out of town for most of the Turkey Trots. I'm still looking though.

All these 5Ks have me thinking - one of these days I am going to run a 5K sans iPod.  You know what? I think I'm going to have to put that on my 34 Things list!  But until then, when my feet hit the pavement (or treadmill as the case may be) I will be accompanied by my iPod.  But what tunes have been motivating me through these 5Ks?  I think it’s time for a list!

Of all in that list, only #15 do we have in common! I'm shocked!

Ha! Take some teeny-bopper pop, throw in some brit-pop, and some other random dance songs and a few other random songs and you have me! :)
