One Mom’s Journey from Fat to Skinny to Confident


My Zooma Half Marathon Running Mix

21 Comments 2321 views

I’m gearing up for my trip to Annapolis. Mom’s here with the family so I’ll have a nice cheering section for the race. My nervousness is turning into anticipation. I’m totally ready to run! :)

Here’s the mix I decided on…

Alright I need to get ready. I’ll be computer-less until Sunday but I’ll try to send updates via twitter on my cell. Wish me luck! :)

P.S. I’ll be #48 in the race!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    For the Local H song try searching for Copasetic. I think that might be the same song.

    I love Peter Bjorn and John and Vampire Weekend! Awesome mix! Good luck tomorrow! :)

    There are too many songs on there I don’t know, but all the luck tomorrow!

    have fun and enjoy it. when I ran the race every Km was 10lbs that I had lost. It kept me going. Have you ever done that before?

    Best of luck to you Roni!

    Any list that includes the Backyardigans is a good list to me… even though my personal fave is Secret Agents :)

    Run strong! You will kick some serious butt :)

    Thanks for the list

    Roni Good Luck! You will do great!
    I love your playlist, I especially love the Backyardigans pick!
    I need to add this one to my playlist, it would make my kids proud!

    Please post a full list comprised of everyone’s responses. My next half is in August (yeah, in Texas!!) and my iPod inspiration is TIRED. iTunes has some recommendations as does NikePlus, but they don’t really suit my needs. Everyone has a song that gets em movin, I’d love to see what everyone else’s are.

    Have a great race. Hope to see you there!

    (I’ll be wearing a blue and white print skirt and a white “Annapolis Running Shop” shirt that says “Kick ARS” on the back … though, there will probably be quite a few of us in those tanks!)

    good Luck!!!

    Good luck today! (I’m in Australia and it’s sunday here already) I’m an aspiring runner (I’m only at 3km at the moment) and I think it’s pretty amazing that you’ve gone from not running to doing a half marathon!


    May 30, 2009

    Thanks for posting your list, I’m always looking for some new stuff to listen to! GOOD LUCK ON YOUR RACE!


    May 30, 2009

    Roni, I live in Annapolis and just found out about the Zooma organization the other day. Wondering if you have any thoughts on the 10K vs. the half marathon – besides the obvious mileage difference do you think one’s better than the other for a “new to running and not all that good at it” runner. Thanks for the help. Alana

    The routes were almost identical except at the 10k mid-way point the half runners kept going. lol Honestly, I wasn’t too too impressed with that race. It was hard to get to, parking was a pain, and they were really rude to my family when my son tried to get a bottle of water. However, I did like that run because it was part road and then went into a paved trail in the woods. Very scenic.
