So, I’m embarrassed about my iPod.  Dan, a true music lover, is even more embarrassed about it than I am.  I’ve owned it for a few years and I’ve added to/changed the music on there exactly 2 times.

Yes, I’m serious.

I like what I like and when I work out I want music on there that gets my heart pumping and that I can sing every word to at the top of my lungs (as I did on the trail this weekend just as a gaggle of cyclists passed in time to hear my version of No Doubt’s Just a Girl.  Awesome.  Thanks for that, headphones).

So you see that I’m in for some trouble as I prepare for our 100km bike ride in a couple of weeks.  Apparently the ride will take around 5+ hours.  I don’t need 5+ hours of music, but I do need to change it up and take it up a level.  I need motivation.  I need music to get me moving.

Can you help?  What are your go-to songs when you work out?  Slow songs need not apply.

And as always, if you want to support either Dan or I, click the links below.  We are so close to our goal but we still need your help. (Oh, and for the record, I am winning the competition.  By a lot.  Are you going to let me kick his butt like this?  Come check out our numbers…)

Another good thing to do is find your songs that you love, rock or whatever, and try and find a remix. Remixes are awesome and usually faster.
