Retro Runners – Country and Places New Release

Yesterday was my record breaking run… It’s not quite Usain standard, nor is it Mo Farah standard, but it is my Personal Best standard, I did my first ever sub 30 minutes, 5 km.

And I did it to this playlist, the Retro Runners Country and Places Playlist, loosely based on song titles or artistes who have a ‘country/place’ linkage. Some are a bit corny and punny, but they are fun.
