I know many times, I have stated not to run with music, but it is so tempting to take the ipod. I found myself taking more with me than the times I do not. I hate the feeling of having to rely on something when I go out for a run. I will try to only take it on about half my runs.
The music really changes things up for me and I have some more fun when I am out. Plus, since I have a new ipod, there is only about 100 songs on it. I use the shuffle feature and have a different playlist each time.
Do you rely on music when you run?
