Love Action's Friday Fix - 3.June.2011

Love Action's Friday Fix - Let's Run Away!


Summer is finally upon us, and we get to look forward to bank holidays, BBQs and just generally being outside more than usual. Brilliant. I have found lately
I've been spending much of this improved weather running the streets of Dublin, both for myself, and to train for the Women's Mini Marathon that takes place this Monday, the 6th of June. I'm running in support of a brilliant organization, BeLonG To Youth Services, who are a LGBT Youth Education organization that hope to set the groundwork for a more accepting and understanding world, as well as provide emotional support for young LGBT people, their friends, and family. If you can spare a few quid, you can sponsor me here! (yep that's me running with the cash!)

Either way, we all know music makes any activity that much more enjoyable, so I've compiled a fantastic "alternative workout mix". It makes a nice departure from the usual Euro techno they play in gyms anyways! Now, of course, you need not run, visit the gym or even go outside to enjoy these tracks, they're also great, really happy, upbeat songs which will hopefully get your Friday, and your month off to a... running start!
