Let the cool goddess rust away.
Question: If every single time I go running I listen to the Clap Your Hands Say Yeah album, will I eventually get sick of it and associate it with sweating/soreness/tired lungs/etc, or will I continue to be a tiny (and I mean tiny) bit excited about going for a run, because then I get to listen to CYHSY's album in its entirety? (The only time I ever unshuffle my iPod is for running and plane rides when I'm trying to relax/sleep. Running music is CYHSY; before I got that cd it was the New Radicals. Plane music is the Notwist or Beth Orton. Please add "predictable" to your adjectives-that-describe-Kate list.)
Anyway, you may hear more about this "running" thing in coming weeks, because I am now officially signed up for the half marathon. At this point, I have no idea how training for that distance is going to happen. The CYHSY album is about 40 minutes long. That gives you an indication of where I am in my training (ie, a long way from 13.1 miles)...
At least I get a trip to Vancouver out of the deal.
