SO just a quick update here. It’s race day! Again. hah. Yes, at this point I’m running 25 (probably more) races this year, so it seems like every other weekend is race day! TODAY is a fun one –

Pace To A Pint! This’ll just be a quick update (quick compared to some of my other posts…) about what’s been going on, why I haven’t been writing much, and how CRAZY life is about to get.

So THIS is new ground…
Considering I only started running at the end of last March, and my first 5K ever was last May…I’ve obviously never run a St. Patrick’s day race before! This should be interesting! I’ll give more details in the post-race recap (probably tomorrow) but for basics, it’s a 5K race right at the Plymouth, MA waterfront! The race starts and ends right near Plymouth Rock, so there should be some great scenery along Plymouth’s historic downtown area and waterfront. After the race there’s a big post-race party – 9 pubs are participating! They really know how to get down with the get down at this race! Each runner gets a ticket for one free Harpoon beer, to be used at their choice of bar (figures they’re not giving away tons of freebies on a St. Pat’s race, huh?). more on that later.

I’ve been a busy little bee lately…

And as such, my posting has suffered! Life is crazy – volunteering for my college fraternity (Delta Chi), work, running, wedding planning…lions and tigers and bears OH MY! So, naturally, things fall by the wayside…including, unfortunately, my posting. That should be changing soon – and it simply HAS to…because I have lots of BIG updates to share!

Oh, and a playlist update!

So, I’ve updated my running playlist – I’d like to repeat my disclaimer: Just because it’s on my running playlist DOES NOT mean I actually listen to it in real life. I’m sure you’ll figure out which songs I mean. As has been the case before, everything 146 BPM and faster is also on a special “sprint” playlist for 5K’s and maybe 10K’s. Check out the additions and let me know what you think! Some of them might not stick…just kinda tryin’ it out. We shall see. You can see the full, updated playlist sorted by BPM here.

110 BPM – The All-American Rejects – Night Drive
126 BPM – Demi Lovato – Neon Lights
127 BPM – Nicki Minaj – Va Va Voom
128 BPM – Martin Garrix – Animals (Original Mix) 
128 BPM – Avicii – Hey Brother (Syn Cole Remix)
136 BPM – Vengaboys – Boom, Boom, Boom, Boom!! 
136 BPM – Vengaboys – We Like To Party
138 BPM – Miley Cyrus – See You Again 
139 BPM – The Killers – Somebody Told Me 
140 BPM – 3OH!3 ft. Katy Perry – Starstrukk 
140 BPM – Cascada – Just Like A Pill 
140 BPM – Crazy Frog – Axel F
142 BPM – System Of A Down – Violent Pornography 
148 BPM – Basshunter – Now You’re Gone

So that’s all for now.
