5 Miles to Start the Week

Some brief rain came through this afternoon, so it helped cool off the area some, and when I set out for my evening run, it was still warm and muggy, but it was much better than the last few days. Thus, I was able to put in my scheduled 5 miles.

Nothing much to note about 'em: they went smoothly and that's the best I can ask for. However, I am enjoying a few new tunes on the mp3 that make the miles that much easier and more enjoyable:

"Girlfriend" Avril Lavigne (I lurv the part where she sings, "And hell, yeah, I'm the motherfuckin princess!" I know that Avril is the pop version of girl angst, but still, I like a little grrrr from my girls; plus, this tune is just plain catchy.)

"Helena" My Chemical Romance

"I Bet You'd Look Good on the Dance Floor" Arctic Monkeys

"I Write Sins, not Tradgedies" Panic! At the Disco (These guys are growing on me -- I like several of their songs; also, it's just awesome to have an exclamation point in your band's name. Seems exciting.)

"Joker and the Thief" Wolfmother

"Thanks for the Memories" Fall Out Boy (Had this song on the computer since about, oh, Christmas, but just recently added it to the running playlist and it works quite nicely with the family of tunes.)

For the 5 miler this evening, I got to hear most of these since the playlist went from "F" for "Faint" by Lincoln Park to "L" for "Lit Up" by Buckcherry. Is it lame to listen to my songs in ABC order?

My daughters love Avril and "Girlfriend." The song is very catchy and I let them listen to it even with the swearing. Bad daddy!

Listening to your songs in ABC order is quite "unique."

"also, it's just awesome to have an exclamation point in your band's name. Seems exciting." LOL. i love exclamation points more than the next guy so i think i might like this group too.

No, not lame.

I can't wait until you download a podrunner podcast from DJSteveboy.

You'll rock that run for sure.

I don't think it is lame, but I always hated that I could determine how long/far I'd been running by what song I was listening to.

That is pretty unique, not too strange though. I will only listen to a cd straight through once as the artist intended. After that it is random/shuffle every time. Likewise for the mp3 player.

I don't think it is lame to listen to things in aBC order - I have just recently started listening to all the albums in my ipod in ABC order by the artists! So I guess I'm lame too. Nice job on the 5 mile run.
