Guess what I did today? I emptied my iPod shuffle. That’s right.I decided to load it only with songs that provoke my legs to run faster. It went from 6 hours of music to over an hour.

Of course it will have songs added to it fairly soon, but I figured if I plan on running my heart out tomorrow at the Hit the Road Jack 10k, I better have some tunes to get feet moving. Since I am shooting for around 52 mins. (which is around 9 min. miles) then I really don’t need very many songs on there. Although, according to all of you on facebook, I need to haul ass and finish under 50 mins. I’ll do my best, — but that would put me at under 8 min. miles. Will my playlist bring that to fruition?

Here are my “must run faster” songs:

No One – Alicia Keys
Single Ladies (Put a Ring on it) – Beyonce
Boom Boom Pow – Black Eyed Peas
Viva La Vida – Coldplay
Universal Mind Control – Common
Get Buck in Here – DJ Felli Fel
Lose Yourself – Eminem
Tambourine – Eve
Echo – Gorilla Zoe
I Want You Back – Jackson 5
Blame It – Jamie Foxx
Champion – Kanye West
Heartless – Kanye West
Let it Rock – Kevin Rudolf
Mr. Brightside – The Killers
Here It Goes Again – OK Go
So What – Pink
Sober – Pink
Fuego – Pitbull
Sexy Can I – Ray J
Nessaja – Scooter (for my Florida Speeters)
Bring Em Out – T.I.
The Way I Are – Timbaland
Shut Up and Let Me Go – The Ting Tings
Untouched – The Veronicas
Shake – Ying Yang Twins

That puts total play time at 1.6 hours, which is over my limit, but sometimes a song that you think is going to get you going (or normally does) just doesn’t work at times; so I loaded it with some extras so I can skip forward if I’m not feeling it.

Alright, there it is. I’ll try my best to make you all proud.
