I have finally found the right music to run with today. It was so obvious that it did not cross my mind. I have tried techno music to pump me up, but it wasn’t doing it for me. I tried Christian music but I felt like I had to preach soon. I even tried love songs to think about Christina to inspire me, but to no avail.
The right music for running that worked for me was “Chariots of Fire” by Vangelis. Pretty obvious huh? For some reason Christina was talking about it this morning and then I decided to run with it and then it just worked – I am under 12 minutes per mile now. Still not where I want to be but much better than 2 weeks ago.
The classic quote by Eric Liddell: “I believe God made me for a purpose, but he also made me fast. And when I run I feel His pleasure.”
