Reminder: Run without your iPod
Yeah, an iPod is cool, but hearing yourself sucking for air after a long hill or when you've just pictured yourself passing that Kenyan during the last 800 meters of your long run is a great way to build confidence in your run. Music has its place, but running with it won't let you experience what the rest of your body is being subjected to. When you run in silence, your mind starts shouting at you to stop, and once again you need to listen to your stride and let it all out.
