I rarely run with music. Outside, I'm concerned about safety. I am quite capable of almost getting killed by cars and cyclists even when I don't have music blaring in my ears. The bigger problem, though is the earbuds. For some reason, the Apple earbuds fall out very easily, and I've been too cheap to investigate other solutions. Last week, two things happened to change this. First, I bought a pair of "in ear" buds that don't fall out, and second, the snow storm kept me trapped on a treadmill all week. This has allowed me (1) to start catching up on Serial, and (2) to renew my appreciation for the Allman Brothers as workout music. In particular, Jessica may be the perfect song to run to. It's seven minutes long, upbeat, and the tempo is quick and steady. I think I will download an extended live version for good measure. Ramblin' Man and Melissa are also pretty awesome. Whipping Post, not so much (too slow) . . .
