Someday I'm going to:
complete my 5th half marathon by: A4S4L4
I have completed three half marathons with Team SuperSibs! in Chicago and one half marathon in NYC. This year I want to train to run as much of the race as I can...instead of walking most of it like I`ve ultimately ended up doing the last four times.
This is my plan | 100%

topher(1887 Days ago)I haven`t quite decided whether I enjoy running with music, or whether it just messes up my rhythm, but I think it makes it more interesting.

Those are some top song! Especially "Gonna Make You Sweat"!

A4S4L4(1887 Days ago)Yeah, I have some friends who can`t run with music, but I don`t think I could ever run *without* music. But I also can see how it could mess with your rhythm because I`m actually a dancer, not a runner, so my body is trained to move in time with rhythms...it`s probably pretty humorous to watch me try and run now that I think about it.

That`s funny that you mention the C+C songI have such an attachment to it because my "boyfriend" in 5th grade gave me that CD for my 11th birthday. It was my first CD and I LOVED that song. Still do. And it`s had a sudden resurgence in my life thanks to Michael Scott`s "cafe disco" on "The Office."
Also, I just joined twitter, and I wrote this one, right when I got your comment:

topher(1885 Days ago)I tried running with music last night and I actually made my best time! I don`t know whether it was because of the music or not. It`s nice to be distracted though by music, I realised how much it takes your mind off the constant rhythm of running, which is what I usually think about.

On the downside, I got very frustrated with my head phones! They kept falling out my ears! I think I`m going to try some bigger ones next time so they actually stay in my eyes and hopefully it`ll be a smoother run.

What is mySomeday.com Close
mySomeday is designed to help you achieve those goals and dreams you’ve always said you’d get to ‘Someday’. It was born from a universal truth; everyone has ‘somedays’ they want to realize. It was designed to address a universal reality; life, laziness or lack of know-how makes achievement elusive. ‘Plans’ are meant to address this gap between truth and reality. Whether you build your own original Plan or copy and customize an existing Expert or Community Plan, this detailed roadmap is meant to get you from start to finish. With a Plan, you can track your progress, set reminders and deadlines, get feedback from the community and much more. In addition to Plans, we hope that all of the elements of the site and the social connections that spring up will take people from idea, to plan, to partnership, and, ultimately, to achievement.
