This month Fitness magazine includes workout playlists from two star athletes: Olympic gold medalist skier, Lindsey Vonn and distance runner, Shalane Flanagan, who placed second in last year’s New York City Marathon (holy crap).
It’s been a while since a straight up Tadpole Audio Mixtape, but over this past winter break I found myself inspired as I rode the chairlift at Stratton Mountain in Vermont. My dad and I were discussing listening to music while skiing – he’s done it before, I worry that I will either not hear an incoming snowboarder, or somehow accidentally crush the device – when I began to think about what I would want to listen to out there in the snow. I’m not a particularly aggressive skier; I used to race in high school, but that was quite a few years ago. Now, the only times I hit the slopes are Christmas’s with my family.
