We Are Strong

Pat Benatar's Love Is A Battlefield is one of my favourite songs to run too. Yes I was a teenager in the 80s, and I am in the veterans age category in France.  Hey I think that makes me sound tough, not old!   Anyway the song has got a BPM of 90, which works perfectly for a 180 strides per minute run cadence and I find the lyrics motivating...
