I’ve decided today will have a theme, I think everyone needs more themes in their life. Is that even a word, it looks funny to me. Kind of like when you say a word over and over and over again it eventually sounds like a made up word. No? That’s just me? OK, moving on.
Today’s theme is soundtracks of the cheesy and kid friendly variety. I realize not every runner is fortunate enough to have the joy of sitting through hours and hours of Disney and Pixar movies, which is why I bring you my two new favorite songs.
First up, from Brave, is “Touch The Sky” by Julie Fowlis. This song fits ME perfectly, because when I’m running and everything falls into place, I feel like I am about touching the sky, it’s pure joy. I usually have this on my racing playlist and it provides an extra nudge I need to pick it up a notch and give everything I have.
Next is from Secretariat, “It’s Who You Are” by AJ Michalka. When I listen to this song, all my doubts about myself and my running seem so much smaller and insignificant. Every lyric in this song makes me think of running and training, and enjoying the journey.
It’s never the glory
It’s never the score
It’s not about seeing about who’s less and who’s more
Cuz when you find out how fast and how far
You’ll know it’s not how much you have
It’s who you are
I mean, come ON, is that not perfect for us as runners?
Now, if I force you to pick a Disney-ish song, what would you choose? Or are you fortunate enough to have zero contact with the force that is kid’s movies?
Next week I will share with you the song that shames me the most on my playlist! FUN times for everyone.
