because when I joined RW there was already a Tommygunn so I decided that I would just add the 2.

I think the other Tommygunn is on fetch more than on here.

As simple as that I'm afraid.

I much prefer running with music - I just find it helps me tune into my running quicker and block out all other intrusions buzzing around my head!  That said I can run fine without music and sometimes choose to do so; it really is just a preference not a reliance thing!  Makes me laugh that people think we become ignorant  when listening to I pods - I still smile and chat to other runners if I see them and feel fully in tune with my body so guess we all different.  Go with what works best for you!

Just do whatever works for YOU matey. I cant tell you what you like. If it gets you out running - then good for the ipod. Sometimes I run with mine (if i can find the bugger) and often I run without. Doesnt make much difference to me other than I can catch up with the archers whilst running.

I have mixed feelings on this.

 I used to do a lot of running with an mp3 player....

 Personally though, as I never race with one, I'd sooner do all my training closer to 'race conditions'. The other thing is you become a lot more in tune with what your body is doing... running too hard, injuries etc. if you are running with no music. It's a good distraction from the pain of hard exercise.... haha.. but sometimes you need to be 'feeling' and 'hearing' what your body is doing and the effects of the run.
