What's in your mix? Oh WOW! cool tunes!

Funny how things spark a a topic. 
Today I was riding in the car with my daughter and still not attempting to drive after my surgery we were browsing through the tunes on the radio when I came along one of my favorite running songs on my playlist. It took me back to the first time I heard it on Pandora.

 I was training for my first half marathon. While my daughter had hours of softball practice for high school EVERY night during the week for months, I would run the track. Sometimes it was hot out sometimes cold. Weather in Florida during the winter can be unpredictable. My favorite time of the year was when it was so cold out at night and the smell of a fire burned in the air. The sky was so black that the stars looked like shiny diamonds sparkling back at me. It was beautiful!

Running around that track was my therapy from a long day of clients, chauffeuring kids, phone calls, and the news of the crazy world we live in. I would change into my running clothes in the school bathroom, grab my water bottle, and plug myself in to some good tunes and RUN!

I love how a good song can make your run so fun! The rhythm of the song, the words, maybe even the meaning of it. 

If a criminal stole my iPhone and the cops said "Give it back to the person in the line up that matched the songs in the playlists"....you would never guess me! LOL.
