I’m Patti and Hannah is my co-worker and my gym “life partner” for over a year now. I do have to claim that the tri started as part of my year 30 meltdown and I’m good at recruiting (see Hannah’s first post -I’m #6). I’m thrilled that she has let me be a guest contributor to this awesome blog, a choice she may later regret, but until that day…here we go!
I was thinking the other day about how I need to start to wean myself of my iPod as they are no-no’s on most road races and definitely a no for the tri. As Hannie and I have discussed running for us is such a mental game. I’m sure I can always run more that I think- so the iPod is a must have.
So until I absolutely have to quit you IPod…I’ve got some new items for you. Since I love themes, I was working on “tri” songs – one somewhat workable mix starts with the following:
Cannonball – The Breeders (“crash on the last splash”)
Bicycle – Queen (“I love to ride my bicycle”)
Running on Empty – Jackson Browne (and well, there just may be nothing left when I get to this point)
So I want to hear from you, give me your best swim/bike/run song list or whatever your inspiration is for that last mile!
