    I'm sure she thought nothing bad would ever happen to her. That is so tragic.  Thanks for the info.

    Well, my choice of music is different from most...99.9 percent comes from the Christian/gospel genre. I love running to David Crowder....some very upbeat songs in there.

    Though I'm not quite running much yet lol. More walking..and only been doing it a few weeks...and missed some days. But I guess that's what happens when you end up having major overtime at work. Sigh. It'll be done in a few weeks though. But for this entry, back to the music.

    I don't run with music, but I do have some favorite pre-run motivational tunes:

     

    Fallout Boy (anything upbeat)

    Hollaback Girl - Gwen Stefani

    Home - Daughtry

    Seriously, I thought it was a new "urban legend" until I googled it.  No one should be that unaware of their surroundings...  Common sense (look both ways before crossing any intersection) would have prevented this.

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

    I usually run on a busy street with my ipod.  I really don't think it is a big deal as long as you keep the volume at a level that allows you to hear what is going on around you.  I always hear cars, trucks, trains over the music playing. 

     

    As we used to say in the Army.  Stay alert, stay alive.

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

    Joe, why do ask that? I don't understand - would the iPod have an effect on the RR crossing mechanism? I don't see how she could have missed the warnings. Usually there are lights flashing and an arm goes down. Although I had a friend who ignored all that and drove her car straight into the path of a train. Idiot.

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

    sorry forgot the smiley faces denoting sarcasm.  exactly my point it's not the ipods fault she ignored the gate unless she was running on the train tracks themselves then that was just a dangerous thing to do with or without an ipod

    Re: favorite running song(s)?

    I think staying alert is the key.  More alert than you think is necessary.  While running this morning a semi-truck came up behind me on a road with little rolling hills and for some reason the hills blocked the sound.  It was within a 1/4 of a mile before I just happened to see its lights while turning my head to look at my friend.  Then it came out of the little dip it was in and I heard it loud and clear.  It was really loud and for the life of me I can't figure out why I could'nt hear it sooner.  So , obviously being extra alert is a good idea even when not listenening to any the great songs listed.

    Anybody else having trouble with the new site??

    I don't know what user name is coming up-I had to create a new account because it wouldn't log me in under the old one. Anyway, helen82 is now (supposed to be) runningfiend.

    Anyway, I've been trying all day to post this: The newspaper account that I read said the unfortunate woman who lost her legs WAS running on the tracks. Train tracks + loud music=very bad outcome.
