OH MY WORD! I was a music major and know the power of music but I was astounded this morning. I have a new mp3 player that I got from Tash. She and her husband had ipods drop into their laps (literally) so she gave me her old mp3.

I made a running mix, which was hard because you have to get the tempo just right and I even used my metronome and still, some of the songs were too fast or too slow. ANYWAY...I ran for 1.5 miles WITHOUT stopping because of the music! I haven't done that in over a year I think! The music made it go by so fast and I didn't concentrate of the fact that I felt tired or whatever.

The beach boys and Ricki Martin had the best songs for my pace. It was so cool! I usually just turn on the tv, get on the treadmill and suffer through it. This time, I felt like I was on a high the whole time. It was great fun! Ya'll have to try it!

More news. I had to go in for a blood test yesterday to make sure my numbers are going down with the miscarriage I am going through. Well, the numbers went up 1000 points. It has the doctor worried that I could be having a tubal after all, although I have no pain there. I may need a D&C. who knows. They can't do another shot so even though the miscarriage is progressing (and that is all I'll say without embarrassing myself). I still may need the surgery. I hate this. What a gross time to have a vaginal ultra sound which is what the doc is planning on doing. UGGG.

Yay for your great run and the power of music. I'm glad you found joy in it this day.

I'm sorry to hear about the miscarriage, I didn't know. You will be in my thoughts and prays. Lets hope there is no surgery required. :(

My sister had 2 miscarriages between each of her last two children...She had a D&C done after the second misc. and she was pregnant two months later...She swears it helps "clean" you out, and makes it easier for conception...

I CANNOT run without my music! It totally allows for an escape!!

Love ya!
