She's mine, all mine...



I broke down!! I had to have her! My son let me borrow his fancier ipod for my 10 mile run on Saturday. He has a special playlist on it just for me, but he will be moving to his own place next week. So I just had to get my own.....and it comes in RED!!!! Even the armband is red! My most favorite color in the world!! It's all about passion, isn't it??

Running with music is such a treat for me. And as I may be running alone on my long runs for awhile to come, I'm really excited to have "company".

I'm building up mileage. I've stopped running to my favorite ravine because the hill workout there is too much with the increased mileage. I'll increase on flatland, then worry about speedwork. Meanwhile, I continue doing my weight training. I"m devoting 2007 all for the Ultras I hope to be able to do. I've been reading lots at www.ultrunr.com So much to learn, I love it!!! I'm maintaining my weight loss, which is my goal thru the new year.

I move to my new condo on Tuesday. I have two weeks off to get everything organized. Lots going on, but it's all good.

People swear by running with I-Pods looks like something to add to the list.

How fun! I couldn't run without my Nano. You'll have fun with the playlists to! You deserve it. Get moved in and on to better things...like running!

You will LOVE your ipod! I never used to run to music; now whenver I am running asphalt or treadmill, I use it. Enjoy!!

Neese said...

Rose said...

Love your new Ipod - red rocks. I really enjoy having the music along for longer runs. Good job on maintaining the weight - that is no easy task at this time of the year.

Jack said...

Hmmm, that's a pretty sexy looking running companion!

She's beautiful! I have enjoyed running with my i-pod as well. I normally use it on shorter runs, but I have taken it along for longer ones as well.

I ran with the iPod for the first time the last spring. Now I cannot run anymore without him/her (?????) except when I race and when I am not alone.

Jessica Deline said...

Oooo she's pretty!!

Mike said...

Be careful Lora- so easy to get addicted to the Nano...especially a really pretty red one! ;-)
Glad to hear everything is going well for you....Re the pic in the last post, You are "disappearing" girly!! I could use those biceps! Awesome awesome work there- keep it rolling!

Your 2007 sounds exciting: music, ultras, passion, fresh surroundings.

RR said...

Lora,

First of all the picture in your previous post I have one word for ya....smokin'!

It's cool to hear your focused on ultras next year. Stay confident in your ability to succeed and train smart. Remember run quality miles and not garbage miles. If your body says stop then listen to it. I can assure you that in the end you'll be better prepared for any race you train for.

I'm gonna ask Santa for one of those cute little things!
