And she'll take what you give her, as long as it's free

Yesterday I ran the Staten Island Half-Marathon.  I didn't run good time, but it was a huge personal victory for me since I came into 2008 ten pounds heavier, smoking, and with a hamstring injury that I thought would never heal.
On the race course, some kid decided to aim his speakers out his bedroom window to provide music to the runners.  I heard him changing the radio station until he came across "She's Always a Woman" by Billy Joel.  Then he clapped as we ran by. 
I'm sure he meant well, but that song isn't going to make its way on to my running playlist anytime soon.
