I ran with the new ipod today. I’m still loading music and haven’t had time to set up a running playlist yet, so I just set it on shuffle. It started off good with a peppy Ace of Base song, but the next song up was Air Supply. While I like Air Supply, it’s not a good choice for running LOL. I skipped that one and oddly, all the rest of the songs were Wilco, Son Volt, and Uncle Tupelo (who are all sort of the same band). The run was fine, but I’m not sure I liked it. Even with the volume fairly low, I felt a little disconnected from my surroundings. I may bring it along on long runs, but I doubt I’ll start running every run with it any time soon.
