The other morning I had to be at work for my 5:45 AM client and I was SUPER tired, due to only sleeping like four hours the night before. Why I do that to myself sometimes I don't know? I was really tired trying my best to be as awake and positive as I could be when One of my favorite 80's songs came on. I was like a new person. Magic I tell you. Magic.
I can remember when I ran the Salt Lake marathon a couple years ago, and I was on mile 25. They changed the course so the finish was different than what I had thought it was. The last mile was uphill, which after 25 miles is a little disheartening if you aren't expecting it. It was right at that moment that Eminem's "Lose Yourself," came on my beloved Ipod. (What would I do w/out that thing???) You can laugh at me, but that is one of my favorite running songs. It ALWAYS pumps me up, no matter what. I got a huge second wind, and I was able to pick up my pace and bust it through to the end. It was awesome.
I have had this experience several times, I start to feel tired and then a new song gives me a boost of energy! It's amazing how music has the power to do that. I actually get excited to get to the gym and workout when I have a bunch of new music. This months mix has some super fun songs that I'm loving right now.
