My Bridge to Brisbane 2011 Playlist

Mr Tchotchke and I woke up before sunrise this morning to take part in the Bridge to Brisbane fun run. I'm not much of a fun-runner, I'm not much of a fun-exerciser-of-any-kind to be honest, but I remembered the rush of satisfaction I got completing the 10km last year and I was tempted into giving it another shot.

I'd only done a few jogs around the neighbourhood in preparation over the past few weeks so I pretty happy with how I went this morning. 

Here I am grimacing at the finish line. I was careful to have a good stretch this time since last year I really struggled with sore legs all week.

Mr T is much fitter than me and great for encouragement - but what really helps me along is my ipod. There's something about a great up tempo song that can keep you bouncing along when your legs just want to give up. I love looking at other people's playlists - so in that spirit I thought I'd post my own. I think its a pretty good mix - and yes I know there are some pretty embarrassing songs on there so lay off the Britney jabs :) I love her.

  1. You know what's more embarrassing? The fact that I hardly know any of those songs! I'm such a dag.
    Good on you for doing the run. I could never understand why they are called "fun" runs. I'm not sure what's fun about it!
