Running my heart out …

I wasn’t planning to post today … so lucky for you … a bonus post!!

Yesterday I went for a morning run with a goal of 4 miles. I’m trying to ease myself back up to 6 miles for an upcoming 10K. With all the prep work for the Queen Bee Market at Snap!, I haven’t been in a very regular routine, but I’m hoping that changes this week.

Anyway, I decided I wanted to jazz up my running music and added several new songs to my playlist … several inspired by all the fun music at Snap!

Today’s playlist::

Rhythm of Love // Plain White T’s
SOS // Rihanna
Set Fire to the Rain // Adele
Single Ladies // Beyonce
Price Tag // Jessie J
Tonight Tonight // Hot Chelle Rae
Good Life // OneRepublic
Party Rock Anthem // LMFAO

** Pause**

Party Rock Anthem will really get you going. My heart was pounding and I’m pretty sure this is where I overdid it and started to fade … a little too fun {but a great ‘give it your all’ finish song}.
** Resume**
Your Hands // JJ Heller
**Pause**
I know, weird timing for this song in my list, but if the last one got my heart pounding, this one made my heart catch in my throat. This one spoke to my heart. My running slowed as I fought back tears.

I have unanswered prayers
I have trouble I wish wasn’t there
And I have asked a thousand ways
That you would take my pain away
You would take my pain away

I am trying to understand
How to walk this weary land
Make straight the paths that crooked lie
Oh Lord, before these feet of mine
Oh Lord, before these feet of mine

When my world is shaking, heaven stands
When my heart is breaking
I never leave your hands
When you walked upon the earth
You healed the broken, lost and hurt
I know you hate to see me cry
One day you will set all things right
Yeah, one day you will set all things right

When my world is shaking, heaven stands
When my heart is breaking
I never leave your hands

Your hands that shaped the world
Are holding me
They hold me still
Your hands that shaped the world
Are holding me
They hold me still

When my world is shaking, heaven stands
When my heart is breaking
I never leave you
When my world is shaking, heaven stands
When my heart is breaking
I never leave
I never leave your hands

I tried to finish out my 4 miles, but at 3.5 I had to walk and finished it out thinking on these words, praying and knowing I am always in His hands.
Now in full disclosure, I understand how random this playlist is … pop, rock and then some praise. A bit like me I suppose ;). Download the above songs at your own discretion … I won’t act like they are ‘nice’ songs and honestly I’m probably missing half of what they are saying … all I will say is that they are great to run to.

  1. That playlist is a hoot! You made me laugh :) Happy running! We are gearing up a color race in two weeks. It should be crazy fun.

  2. My playlists are pretty eclectic, too- but usually have some LMFAO or Lady Gaga. Which reminds me, I need to revamp mine for upcoming races- found a few songs that I NEVER want to listen to while running, even though I love them.
    Good luck in your 10K- Have fun!

  3. That song is amazing. Thank you do much for sharing it!!

  4. Love that you have such an eclectic mix!
    You should add “stronger” by Kelly Clarkson! It’s a good one!

  5. that song is amazing, isn’t it? thanks for sharing it and your play list… maybe i should get out there!!
