This Morning's Playlist

It's darker out at 5:45 a.m. than I remember.  When did I officially become a night runner? (That should NOT be confused with Knight Rider, though I would love a car that could drive me places while I took a nap.)  Thankfully I didn't have a night like Carrie Underwood in Last Name.

Yes car, I see you and hear you honking, even with Pump It (Black Eyed Peas) in the background.  If three cars can fit on this street, I'm pretty sure there's room for you and me, especially since I am now running on the grass next to the actual road.

Not Afraid (Eminem) might have to become an opening song if it's going to stay on my iPod.  I love Eminem, and he pumps me up mentally, but my legs just aren't feeling it.  Running in the morning without eating is a whole different animal than running after a full day's worth of fueling and pent-up frustrations.

Why hello there legs!  Footloose (Kenny Loggins) does it every time.

Having Like a G6 (Far East Movement) play immediately after Footloose either shows that I'm not quite as old as I feel some days or that I am exactly that old and need to stop watching Gossip Girl.

Unlike the last two songs, Gold Digger (Kanye West, featuring Jaime Foxx) slows me down, which isn't a good thing when facing that annoying hill three-quarters into my run.

Thank goodness I'm Shipping Up to Boston (Dropkick Murphys) -  is short.  I'm getting tired.

When I mentally tell myself I have one more song to get home, is it cheating when that song is a behemouth like The Rockafeller Skank (Fatboy Slim)?  Thankfully, it only took about a quarter of the song to make it back to my house or it would have been the slowest three blocks ever recorded.

I had a planned post in my head, and this wasn't it.  But last night, Ryan and I celebrated my birthday by lazing on the couch and watching Valentine's Day instead of studying (him) or writing (me).  There's nothing like a movie with Jennifer Garner, Jessica Biel, Anne Hathaway, and Jessica Alba to motivate me to get out of bed to run.  (No offense intended to Shirley MacLaine).

    Oh, I am definitely a morning runner. I was thinking the same thing at 5:30 this morning...it's really dark out! I love Black Eyed Peas, especially when I'm running.
    P.S. I watch Valentine's Day for the men...Patrick Dempsey especially XO

    This is a great motivating post to get me back into my exercise routine! Happy Belated Birthday by the way, spending time with the hubs is always good:)

    Love the look of your blog, looks fantastic!

    Wow, girl- that is motivation! I hate getting up early like that!

    Yes, but if I get up early, I have more time at night to write and watch So You Think You Can Dance :)

    Thanks Melissa (for the birthday wish & the compliment about the blog!)

    I've been running at night, but I need to get back into the mornings.  I make better choices all day when I run in the morning.

    I have such weird taste in music, but...

    ...wait...what was I talking about...Eric Dane...um what?

    I was a morning runner forever, and then the kids were getting up so early that I gradually switched to night.  I need to get back to my mornings, though!

    Eric Dane's my fave, but I'll take a little McDreamy on the side :)

    Ha! Too funny! From Knight Rider to Gold Digger... to your sleeping and not-so-sleeping children. This was a fun post :) OK, off to copy your music mix into my iPod! LOL.

    Thanks Kate!  It was NOT a planned post, but my brain goes all goofy when I run, so I came home and rushed it off :)

    There is no way I could get up that early to run! You sure do have a variety of songs on there! ;)

    I wish I was disciplined enough to get up and run that early! Love that shot of Abby.

    My iPod is a mish mash of so much stuff.  It's probably ridiculous for anyone else to attempt to listen to it :)

    She's so goofy.

    I wish I could do it every day; I like it so much better than going to the gym and running on the treadmill at 10:00 at night.  If only I could manage to get off the computer and get to bed before 1:00 a.m...
