What Have I Gotten Myself Into – The Peachtree Edition

"Run Scott run!"

Have you ever had one of those moments where you said you would do something and in hindsight you look back and say to yourself, “What was I thinking?!” I am experiencing one of those moments right now. Back in March I signed up for the Peachtree Road Race thinking I would do plenty of training and be ready for it this year. (Insert major laugh and “YEAH RIGHT!” right about here.) I did the race last year and in 2008 – last year I did it in about 90 minutes and in 2008 I was just happy I finished it still on my feet. You could easily say that I’m a glutton for punishment, but I paid the money and I’m a man of my word, so I’m going to stick to it and earn that t-shirt (the one I’ve already paid for by entering the race). This year I’ll probably end up walking at least 75% of the race, if not all of it.

The thought of running/walking 6.2 miles in the morning heat on July 4 just isn’t too exciting right now, so I’ve created a playlist on my iPod to help me make it through. Any of my friends out there reading this, if you’re in the area…feel free to come and cheer me on if you’d like – I could easily use the encouragement! Here are the songs I’ve used to create my Peachtree Road Race 2011 playlist (and no laughing or judging on my choice of music…I like a mixture of styles, but mainly went with upbeat Top 40 songs to keep me moving – I also have two nieces and two nephews that listen to my iPod when I see them so some of these songs reflect that as well).
