Tonight, I’m going to download ten new running songs from iTunes for my birthday (Thank you for the gift card, Joe & Rhonda!):
- Roll To Me by Del Amitri
- Two Princes by Spin Doctors
- Yes I Will by Bebo Norman and Joy Williams
- Material Girl by Madonna
- Suds In The Bucket by Sara Evans
- Suddenly I See by KT Tunstall
- Should’ve Said No by Taylor Swift
- Slide by Goo Goo Dolls
- There Is No Arizona by Jamie O’Neal
- Kiss Me by Sixpence None the Richer
Don’t laugh at my eclectic mix of tunes. I chose them because they’re upbeat and singalongable…and will likely keep me energized as I run my 1.5 mile course. Yes, I said 1.5…not 15 or 20…like the amazing Kelly of According to Kelly. She was just tweeting yesterday about her marathon-training pursuits…so inspiring!
I’ve written pretty extensively about how I want to be a fit and active mom (read: 7 Things I Do to Get Motivated to Exercise and I Never Considered Myself To Be A Runner). Exercise has too many benefits to ignore…and I want to show my girls that it’s important to prioritize their health.
Although I’m pretty committed to putting one foot in front of other by running a few times per week, I’d like to be even more fit. It’s a goal that is constantly in the forefront of my mind. I want to be fitter, toner, stronger.
