When I run outside, I go music-free. I enjoy the silence, unless of course I can indulge in some adult conversation. At the gym, on the treadmill, despite there being TVs, I rarely watch, I usually just go and maybe do some people watching. Again, I will definitely forego the silence if there's some adult conversation to be had. But at home, when I'm stuck in my little room on my hamster wheel, for some reason I have a lot more trouble getting in the zone. I usually put in a movie while I run.

Today I had a shorter run planned... 4 miles, and again I decided to run at home. Paige was home but Lily went to school, so when Paige is alone, she's a lot less likely to stay put... so today, my treadmill entertainment was this:
So what do *you* do to keep yourself going while you run? Do you enjoy silence? Are you an iPod fan? Or do you watch NCIS every night (like TMB)?
