This morning Downtown D and I ran our 4 mile loop. It was nice not to have any pressure to be fast, or any pressure to be on time. We began our run around 6:55am...10 minutes late, but better late than never, right??? I love running with her. One of us always has something good to talk about...and there are very few moments of silence. And she doesn't have any aspirations to be super-fast...faster, yes...but super-fast...not in this lifetime. And for some strange reason, I was totally pumped to run this morning. I'm not sure if it was falling asleep on the couch last night (with my contacts in) or the fact that I realized this morning that I didn't drink one drop of water yesterday (insert a hint of sarcasm). Whatever it was, it made me totally siked (there's that word again) to run this morning. And that's not being sarcastic.

At any rate, I was on my way home. Listening to my XM. When it happened. I had to make what will probably be the single biggest decision I make all day. And at a moment's notice. I was torn. I was indecisive. I was totally confused. And I wished Troy was with me, so that he could be the one to make the decision. Here's how it went down.

My XM beeped to let me know that some song that I like was playing on another station. When I glanced down it was Ben Folds Five, Rockin' the Suburbs. Since BFF is very rarely played on XM (or at least when I'm in the car), I immediately switched the station.

And that's when it happened.

Immediately, it beeped again. This time signaling me that Barry White's Can't Get Enough was on channel 7. Crap! What a decision. BFF...since I never ever hear them...or Barry...who doesn't love Barry??? (okay, you don't have to reply to that).

It was a tough decision. I finally chose Barry. Only because I really can't get enough of him (I'm a dork).

Tomorrow is the Camp Little Shots 5k.

I'm shooting to finish. And eat Cracker Barrell after. Other than that I have no expectations about tomorrow.

Have a great weekend!

I love my XM, but have the same problem. With so much great music to hear, just how do you decide what to listen to.

Best of luck with your 5K. Looking forward to the race report and few pictures.
