So, recently I’ve been getting off on spontaneously creating mini-playlists. Themed ones. (Essentially like what I did that one time.) I love distance running, so naturally that came up as a theme in my mind today.
I’m also feeling inspired by Julia Chase-Brand (pictured above in 1961), the first woman to compete in a major running event, even though race officials denied her entrance on multiple occasions. Pretty much as radical feminist and politically rebellious as the running world gets. Anyway, enough prattle, give me the running songs:
This by-no-means-in-my-top-20-but-still-good Talking Heads song also reminds me of running. But mainly, you ought to look up and listen to songs 1, 4, 7 and 8 from the mini-playlist. Oh, and if you’re going to run, obviously you should be wearing Joy Division-themed New Balances. Just saying.
