headphones

After completing my 9.5 mile run today, I feel very accomplished. Although my knees are still paying for it a bit, it's great to have done it.
I looked at the okc marathon website today because I hadn't officially registered for the half marathon yet. I started my registration and as I was reading the release form we have to agree to, I learned that headphones are not allowed.

Are. You. Kidding. Me.

I almost started crying. Running, in itself, is a huge feat for me and taking away my music is just unimaginable at this point. Do you realize that for me, as a new runner, my music is sometimes what gets me through my runs? Sorry to all of you legit-hardcore-natural-earthy runners, but I need electronics. I am still planning on doing some further investigation in this matter. However, with or without it, I WILL run this race, dang it.

And with all of that said.... good night.

  3. hahaha...I love what Danielle said! I just remembered that I have heard that...and sometimes I think it has to do with the fact that people let their music blare and it's distracting to others who are listening to music. So maybe if you really promise to keep it down they'll let you! But you can do it regardless! I believe in you!!!!
