Last night while driving home from a much needed girls night out (a few friends invited me for sushi and gelato) the song Blackened by Metallica came on the radio. I was immediately transformed back to the 13 year old version of myself dressed in head to toe black with a my staple patched up jean jacket, long hair and bangs. As I jammed out listening louder then any self respecting 30-something mom should I thought… "YES! I need a new running mix"
So I came home, hit iTunes and put together the most awesome mix ever! Seriously this was exactly what i needed to attempt 15 miles. And even though it wasn’t long enough for my 2 hour 53 minute run this morning the fast angry beats kept me going.
Oh yeah did I tell ya.. I RAN 15 MILES THIS MORNING!
Well I didn’t run the whole thing. I broke to walk about every 3 miles but I swear that gave me WAY more energy and stamina through the whole run. The marathon is only 4 short weeks away and even though I’m not as ready as I wanted to be I’m excited. I’ve been looking at the course map and mentally preparing for it. I’m planning a special running mix and you can bet most if not all of these songs will be on it!
So here’s the mix. Let me warn you now, it’s very explicit. If you are easily offended don’t even read the titles. I’ve always been a fan of this style of music but I realize it’s not for everyone.
I feel compelled to end this post with a ROCK ON! so I will.
