I definitely feel more energetic once the right song comes on. I really need to find my iPod and make a kick ass playlist. I love Pandora because it's easy and free, but sometimes I find myself skipping a ton of songs to find a good one and then they throw in a commercial because I skipped too many.
And you're right, I know if I stick with it I can build up to it. Thanks for the tips! At one point I couldn't have run for 30 seconds and at least I can go a minute and a half now, so that's something.
