Six miles. Done and done.
Normally, I rock out to the Pitbull station on Pandora â€“ hey, what can I sayâ€¦. Iâ€™m from Miami â€“ but today, I tried something different. I listened to NPR on my iPhone. I took the one hour run to catch up on Weekend Edition and world news.
Did it make me slower? You bet. Thereâ€™s a lot of research that indicates that listening to fast-paced music makes you run faster (and slower music makes you go slower), so listening to talk radio really made my pace crawl. However, it was a nice change from the normal tunes. And I actually learned something. Hey, hey!
And now, I think Iâ€™m going to bake another pumpkin pie. Did I say I was looking forward to getting back to normal eating? Iâ€™ve changed my mind.
