Ipod Runner

For years now I have always run with my Ipod.  If for some reason I left it at home or the battery was dead that run would be awful.  Lately though I have been leaving it at home more and more often and the thing is, is that I am enjoying my runs more and since I am actively thinking about my run I am pushing myself to run faster than usual.

So, do you run with or without an Ipod?

I usually run without an ipod, but days when I need extra motivation, I pull it out. Also any long runs over miles (not that I've done that lately!) and always on the treadmill.

I'm working with HealthRally, a new software company focused on health motivation. I found you via your tweets, so I'm assuming you are health-oriented, tech savvy and like to try new things.

We'd like you to try HealthRally and give us feedback before we bring it to the public. We think you would be a great fit.

HealthRally.com is a private social network where you choose a health goal like losing weight, pick a reward that could motivate you, and then invite your close friends and family to cheer you on and motivate you to succeed with pledges toward your reward.

It's a new approach, and we are seeing our first group of users achieve their goals and have a bunch of fun in the process.

Can I send you a link to sign in and try?

Just send me a note at justine@healthrally.com

I haven't decided which I prefer. Music is motivating and fun, but I also like running in the silence (gives me time to reflect & pray).

I'd also like to try listening to books while I run (have you tried that?).
