I always wonder what other people are listening to on a run. While my selection is mainly Rock to help dull the pain, I have a few unique tracks which always make me smile and sometimes bring goosebumps to my appendages.
I like to call it the “Soundtrack of my life” and this is how it goes:
The Killers remind me of jumping around at Mercury (this is considered training too), singing on the top of my lungs with Andrea, Vanessa, Jeanene, Nix and the rest of the girls
Modest Mouse reminds me of driving to work in the snow with Jonathon
Barenaked Ladies and Travis remind me of Ky and Trine, Kings Cutlery and Scotland
“Honky tonk ba-dunk-a-dunk” (don’t ask if you aren’t interested in American country music) reminds me of my travel buddy Tessa and living in Pleasant Street, USA.
The Foo Fighters and Violent Femmes remind me of road tripping and Andre
“Ninety-nine Quiet Bitter Beginnings” by CKY reminds me of Tomasin and the car phone
“Swing Life Away” by Rise Against and “Instant pleasure” by Rufus Wainright reminds me of life at the Pemi and skiing (in snow)
The Red Hot Chilly Peppers is Europe and Dispatch is America
I will be starting the Comrades to the prescribed Chariots of Fire and I will be ending it with PM’s Love Theme from the movie “Love Actually”.
All this music helps melt the kilometers away, what are your favorites??
