Is it good or bad that I’m not nervous about tomorrow’s 18? I don’t even know if I’m running it with anyone yet as Zoë and I have yet to connect via text this week.
In fact, more than anything I’m excited for 18 miles. I’m gonna conquer it and then I’m going to come home, T Junior will draw my ice bath (hehehe), I’ll put the Active Wrap (review to come) I received to test on my left shin, and then Mr. T says he’s smoking ribs for dinner. Yum! I’ll add to that some cornbread because I can pretty much eat whatever I want after 18 miles. Beer. What else should I have with this meal?
Tomorrow’s forecast is not good, however, and that’s the one thing I’ve got in the back of my mind: 45 degrees with 80 percent chance of rain and wind at about 13 mph. Boo. I still won’t be testing my running skirt on a long run. But I will be testing my playlist.

Nice playlist! I have a lot of those songs on my shuffle too – good running tunes. Yeah, I'm a little bummed that it's not going to be nice tomorrow, but running schedules don't pause because of weather, right? We fight through it! Good luck!
Good luck on 18 tomorrow!! :oD
Good luck on the 18 miler! I need to update my playlist too. I'm going to check out some of the songs on your list!
Hope it went well….so proud you! Thanks for the playlist…I am going to steal a few!!
Nice play list!I totally psyched myself out yesterday/this morning. I felt like sht this morning when I started. I wanted to cry, vomit, use the bathroom, walk, curl up in a ball. I really FELT bad but I kept thinking it must be mostly mental. If I hadn't been meeting Sally at mile 4, I would have ran back to my car and crawled back in bed. Once I met Sally, though, it melted away! It made a HUGE difference to pull my head out of myself and visit with someone. Phew! Anyway – Don't let your mind run away with your body. You can totally do this thing. You have SO much preparation behind you and you are going to rock this thing come rain or shine. Enjoy those ribs!
Good luck w/ the 18! And you should have dessert after dinner, too. :^)
Excellent playlist! I just bought Run Run Run and Firework for my own running mix.Have a great 18-miler! I'll be working my way through 4. 🙂
Glad I'm not the only one who likes music from legally blonde the musical haha. Those songs are so catchy! Great playlist! good luck on 18!
I love the breakdown of your playlist – BTW, totally stealing some song ideas. Good luck with the 18!
Nice playlist! Good luck with your 18!
good luck tomorrow – I am hitting 11 and thinking it will be a wet run!
Loving the tunes…I see a lot of overlap on my list! :)How did it go? So nice that you and Zoe could run together! I think I missed your twitter update about it so I can check that too! 🙂

Dig the playlist! More than 3/4 of it is already on my list and I plan on using some of the rest of yours, thank you very much.
