An ALL Bruce (Springsteen, duh) Runner’s Dream Playlist

1 Comment

OK, so I realize that my playlist post was not as comprehensive as I would have liked.  I left some crucial songs out!  I tried to post on the go, sans iPod and I must make some additions so check that post soon for this…

So, In light of  honor of those amazing pictures of Bruce I saw on TMZ

Bruce Springsteen

(In case you needed a reminder) 😉

I had an all-Bruce playlist on my 5-miler today.  It was as follows:

Radio Nowhere

Badlands

No Retreat

Darlington County

Born to Run

Glory Days

Out on the Street

Hungry Heart

IT WAS AH-MAZING!

A runner’s dream playlist! JANUARY

3 Comments

Finally!  The post you all I have been waiting for!  Luckily, I heard three of my faves in a row in the car on the way to work which pumped me up for my run later…Do you Remember (Jay Sean), Hard (Rihanna), and ironically, Transform Ya (Chris Brown).  So, here are a few of my FAVE playlists!  By the way, I will be doing a new one each month that will feature new songs added to the “runner’s dream playlist” (not necessarily new on the radio, but new to “the mix”).

HIPPIE MUSIC

Marley- Three Little Birds

The Who- Baba O-Riley

ROCK

Bruce (Springsteen duh)– Radio Nowhere, Darlington County, Badlands

Rush- Working Man, Subdivisions

RAP/R&B

Chris Brown-Transform Ya

Rihanna- Hard

Beyonce- Single Ladies

Alicia Keys/Jay-Z- Empire State of Mind

Gaga- Bad Romance

Wyclef- Dollar Bill

Jay Sean- Do you Remember

HARDER MUSIC

Disturbed- Down with the Sickness, Violence Fettish

The Casting Out- For Tonight

OTHER

Owl city- Fireflies

Krishna Das (typically yoga music, but this song gets me going!  I have NO idea what he is saying but Oscar and I BOTH like ths song!- Township Krishna

Kris Allen- Live Like We’re Dyin’ (you KNOW I love this song!)

Darude- Sandstorm (lol- this does actually get me going!)

MIND GAMES I PLAY- So what I have been doing lately is playing a bit of “mind games” with myself.  I am the kind of person who gets OBSESSED with a particular song and I like to rock out to it at LEAST 3-4 times in a row (hey, it helps with the lyric-learning so I can belt along!). SO, I have been picking a “song-per-mile” and rocking out to that song on repeat until the next mile (and song) comes!  It seriously works to take your mind off of things and helps you achieve mileage goals…I think.  Try it- let me know what you think!  At least you can memorize lyrics so that you can belt it out with the best of them!

Hahah!

New YUMYUM and Noteworthy Song

1 Comment

Hi all!  Just HAD to tell you about this INCREDIBLE new find!  It is SUCH a yumyum!  I found these babies at Whole foods on SALE, mind you, and they are an AMAZING find!  This creamy mac and cheese is soooo delish, low in cals (210 for ENTIRE experience container!), organic, easy to find AND inexpensive!  You just add water (up to the line-no measuring!)  and micro for 3.5 minutes and voila!  An incredibly cheesey creamy mac and cheese meal.  And yes, it is filling.  People, I was skeptical at first too, but I’m telling you-TRY IT.

OK, so even though the Husband of COURSE made fun of me (he always does about my cheesey songs) I LOOOOVE Kris Allen’s song, “Live Like We’re Dying.”  I think it is soooo catchy and I LOVE the lyrics:

Sometimes we fall down and can’t get back up
we’re hiding behind skin that’s too tough
how come we don’t say I love you enough
till it’s to late, it’s not too late
Get the free MP3 at http://www.emp3world.com/mp3/119489/Kris%20Allen/Live%20Like%20We’re%20Dying

Our hearts are hungry for a food that won’t come
we could make a feast from these crumbs
and we’re all staring down the barrel of a gun
so if your life flashed before you
what would you wish you would’ve done

Yeah… gotta start
lookin at the hand of the time we’ve been given here
this is all we got and we gotta start pickin it
every second counts on a clock that’s tickin’
gotta live like we’re dying

We only got
86 400 seconds in a day to
turn it all around or to throw it all away
we gotta tell ’em that we love ’em
while we got the chance to say
gotta live like we’re dying

And if your plane fell out of the skies
who would you call with your last goodbyes
should be so careful who we live out our lives
so when we long for absolution
there’ll no one on the line

Yeah… gotta start
lookin at the hand of the time we’ve been given here
this is all we got and we gotta start pickin it
every second counts on a clock that’s tickin’
gotta live like we’re dying

We only got
86 400 seconds in a day to
turn it all around or throw it all away
we gotta tell ’em that we love ’em
while we got the chance to say
gotta live like we’re dying

LOVE IT!

PHANNNTASTIC Run and Another Public Apology!

2 Comments

Howdy!  Just had the best run ever!  I think part of it was that I used my husband’s awesome Bose earphones because mine were in the car and I am just plain lazy (even though I was prepping to hop on the treadmill!).  So, I don’t know what the problem was (hint:  it might be the big ears-love you, babe) but I could not get the stinkin’ things to stay in my ears, so…I licked them.  Yes, you heard right, I LICKED THE EAR PHONE.  Ew, I’m even making myself nautious reading that back.  Anyway, this is the reason for a second public apology to my hubs.  Sorry babe for the lickage.  Anyway, here was me with my battle/game face on:

This pic is bad a$$ (not in a good way) LOL

My playlist was PUMPING but so random that I have to share:

I’ve gotta feelin (Black Eyed Peas)

Empire State (Jay-Z) and of COURSE I subbed in Philly lyrics

Party in the USA (Miley Cyrus-I know, don’t even say it)

Say Hey (Michael Franti)

3 Little Birds (Marley, duh)

Vindicated (Dashboard Confessional)

Radio Nowhere (Bruce)

Working Man (Rush-shout out to the Husband)

OK, I know, random, but hey-whatever works, right?

SO now I am refueling with some Activia (love me some bifidus regularis) and strawberries.  Nursing a headache I am hoping is from dehydration(fixing now) rather than the beginning of the stinkin’ flu half of my students are out because of…only time will tell.

Gotta get revvvvvved up for the game!  Can’t wait!  Toodles!

GO PHILS!
