Welcome rest day

I'm glad to have a rest day today ahead of tomorrow's 16 mile run. I've no idea where I'm going to run yet but wherever I run I know it's going to be stinkingly hot with the high set to hit 91 tomorrow here in Chicago. The hourly forecast at weather.com shows that even if I run at 5am it will still be 74 so it seems there is no sense in rushing out. I get to try out my sleeveless tech running shirt tomorrow too so I can see if that helps keep me cool. Needless to say I'll have my water bottle with me and should probably incorporate a couple of water fountain stops for refills.
On the music front I've just bought Gnarls Barkley's St. Elsewhere album so I'll be rocking along to that. What do you like to listen to when you run (if anything)? I'd be interested if any readers have good running mixes they can recommend.
