Running Music Mix
A song is a powerful thing. It can bring you back to a time in your life that you’ve since tried to forget, wanted never to forget or didn’t know that you still longed to remember. A song can bring you back to the family vacations of your childhood, to the arms of your first love or in my case, back to college and straight into an embarrassing public display of cringe-inducing dance moves. Once upon a time, half of a wine cooler was enough to convince me that my life was one big music video. Two beats into an N’Sync song and I’m cowering in the corner screaming for someone to make it stop.
These days a song is sometimes what gets me through a particularly bad bout of having a millions reasons why I don’t want to train; or am already running and want to turn around and go home. The songs on this list are BAD ASS and make me feel like one when I need some extra pep in my step. (Click the song title for the iTunes link.)
*Here’s a sneak peek of one more for you that’s not available for download yet, but will get you in the mood to conquer the world. It’s called “Soldier” and I wrote it with my best friend/marathoner, Megan Conner. We hope it inspires you like it did us while we were writing it. Click on the link, crank your speakers and enjoy!
