It beats only for you.


Another Race Means Another Training Program

To You,

Okay, so maybe ‘training program’ is a slightly exaggerated term for how I am preparing for my next challenge. The lad and I have signed up for the 2013 Urbanathlon in Chicago on October 19th, and this one requires a 10-mile obstacle run through the downtown core of the windy city – yes, it sounds both awesomely epic and terrifying to me. The double digit distance has me a wee bit intimidated as the first challenge I conquered (this would be the second) was a mere 3-miles. But what could be more inspiring than running through and over obstacles – including cars, buses, stair climbs, etc. – in downtown Chicago?! I couldn’t resist, so I signed up.

And now I’m screwed.

No, no – I’m just joshin’! I’m in training mode again and to get started, the most crucial component to any workout plan was attacked: the playlist. I cannot listen to what can only be compared to as the equivalent of elevator music for fitness fanatics in the gym and so I need some beats. I also need entertainment (hence #5 and #6). This is my quickie list, round 1:

Holy Grail, Jay-Z feat. Justin Timberlake
Straight Out the Gate, Tech N9ne feat Serg Tankian & Krizz Kaliko

The Come Up, Twista

Give It to You, Robin Thicke feat. Kendrick Lamar

Diaper Money, The Lonely Island

Yolo, The Lonely Island feat. Adam Levine & Kendrick Lamar

Priorities, Tech N9ne feat. Game & Angel Davanport

Dwamn, Tech N9ne

Take it easy on me, Robin Thicke

Any beats you can toss my way? Post them! I’m down for suggestions 🙂
