Special thanks to running gal and college buddy Elena for the tip on jog.fm. Have any of you tried it yet? It's pretty much 'da bomb if you need a little extra pep in your step (or if you're sick in tired of EVERYTHING on your ipod like yours truly).
Basically, you type in your mile time, and it finds the best music to match your pace (it works for cycling/spinning too). As jog.fm puts it...
You know the feeling...
When that pump-up song comes on right as you're thinking of quitting.
Suddenly your second-wind kicks in.
When the song matches perfectly to your pace.
It almost feels like you're not even exercising.
[Ha! Clearly I took this directly from the website and this is not my own description]
That's what jog.fm is all about.
Check it out and report back!
