Subway Commit to Fit Giveaway: iPod Shuffle and $10 iTunes gift card

In the spirit of giving away other people’s loot, it’s time for another Subway Commit to Fit giveaway. As I mentioned before, the Commit to Fit program is encouraging people to set their own fitness goals, like Jared Fogle aka Jared the Subway Guy who is training for the New York City Marathon. This time around, they’re giving away a green iPod shuffle and a $10 iTunes gift card. (For the tech geeks among us, this is the 4th generation 2BG iPod shuffle.)

iPod Shuffle

There is no doubt a good playlist can help you keep moving. When I ran a half-marathon, it was only a dance remix of Bryan Adams singing “Run to You” that got me through mile 10. Here are some of the songs I’ve been listening to on my walks recently. Links go to YouTube or iLike, and occasionally feature an anime fan video:

Catie Curtis – You Can Always Be Gone
Justice – D.A.N.C.E. (Not only a catchy song, but a good review of spelling.)
Seasun – Delorean
The Veils – Sit Down by the Fire
Carbon Leaf – The Boxer
Ahmet and Dweezil Zappa – Hit Me Baby One More Time
Glasvegas – Geraldine (Best song about a social worker that I’ve ever heard.)
Shout Out Louds – Tonight I Have to Leave it
Florence + the Machine – Dog Days are Over

This giveaway is open to residents of the United States only. To enter, leave a comment below listing one of your favorite songs to work out to. Contest closes at 11:59pm EST on Sunday, October 24, 2010. Winner will be chosen randomly. For more information about the Commit to Fit program and for a chance to win up to $26,200, visit the Subway Facebook page.

Disclosure: The prizes listed in this post were provided for free.

Jennette Fulda tells stories to the Internet about her life as a smartass, writer, weight-loss inspiration, chronic headache sufferer, and overall nice person (who is silently judging you). She does this at JenFul now, but you can still have fun perusing her past here.

Humans can sleep for days when living alone underground, experiments show - ScienceAlert
This is probably a sign that I've got problems, but the idea of sleeping for 30 hours sounds really appealing.

Justin Bieber chastised audience for clapping on the offbeat: The biggest challenge facing musicians at shows is audiences with bad rhythm.
I'm linking to this because of the video of Harry Connick Jr. at the bottom, who manages to throw in an extra beat in the middle of a song to get people to start clapping on the offbeat without them even realizing. Mad skillz!
