Random thoughts, 4.22

Do any of you run? No, I don’t mean from your mom when she’s holding a stick and you’ve done something wrong. I mean, running outside. Jogging around a block or something.

Those of you who do, let me ask you this:
Do you listen to music when you run?

I’ve always thought it was interesting the way that people listen to music when they run. I mean, I’d rather be outside to listen to the quiet sounds of nature… or listen to cars passing you, depending on where you live and/or jog. I, personally, don’t listen to music when I ride my bike, because a) It’s a saftey hazard–a car could come up to me and hit me, and 2) I like to listen to the tranquil noises I can listen to after I pass the stoners’ house.  I enjoy listening to the sound of the bike wheel cruising along on the asphalt, riding past small businesses to see how they’re doing, escaping loose dogs, you know. Stuff like that.

Religion post still in the making. Still iffy about posting it, though. Got about 6 “go ahead”s and 1 “don’t go ahead.” You’ll see.

TTFN! Ta-ta for now!

  1. Well…how far do you run.
    For me, I like to zone out in my music rather than hear myself panting (which makes me more tired).
    Also, being distracted while running makes you even more tired.

  2. Well part of the idea is that the musical pumps you up, or gives you a steady beat to run along with. I agree with you sometimes, its nice to have quiet. But then sometimes its great to cruise along listening to music. But I too avoid listening to music on my bike for fear of death.
