My running music.
I have an iPOD shuffle clip-on. This is my best little running buddy. We are very attached, I'm not sure I could run without it. Even when I am with a group I have my music. I don't mean to appear rude or anything, but it really keeps me going. I keep the volume low-ish so I can talk to others as we pass.
I have roughly 150 songs loaded. The music varies from rock, pop, alternative, and some hip/hop. If I am running in an event I listen to the play list, if I'm just running/exercising I use shuffle. Before a race I like to add a couple of new tunes or rearrange things a bit. Hey, anything to help distract my mind from what my body is trying to do!
