Today is a holiday in Canada. I have no idea why but for some people it’s a STAT day, some others it is not. I have today off with pay (my boss is da man – woot woot). I may have mentioned previously in a post that I’m a runner. I’m not a fast runner, nor am I a seasoned runner but I run. In the spring I trained for a half marathon and I completed it. Tough, I hung my shoes up and took a sabbatical until today. Bad idea.
My Run Lila Run Playlist was out-of-date. THE HORROR!!!!!!!!! While my feet may have picked up speed when Queen’s Fat Bottomed Girls came on, and I tried to keep my ‘feet off the ground’ for Gambit it just seemed a little forced and if I’m going to keep running I need a new playlist to boot. If I’m being honest, this running gig is a bit more about vanity than anything. I have set a goal to drop 10 pounds (plus the few I put on during my sabbatical) and yes, sure it’s for the health of it, but I have a tripped to Cuba, a wonderful cruise around the island booked in December.
So here I am hoping that Betty and maybe some other quiet but friendly blog readers out there will suggest a tune or two for my playlist. I’ve also seen the wonders of iTunes Genius playlists, but my good I’d have to dedicated a week or two to sort and fix my iTunes library, everything needs to be categorized! I wish I had the time, as the Genius feature is well….genius.
Here’s my start:
- Juliette & The Licks – Hot Kiss
- RHCP – Taste The Pain (staple on my run)
- Hesta Prynn – You Winding Me Up
- Ryan Star – Start a Fire (power song)
- Florence + The Machine – Dogs Days are Over
- Shake it Out – Manchester Orchestra
- Company of Thieves – Death of Communication
- Marlena Shaw – California Soul
- The Naked & Famous – Young Bloods
Thanks in advance for your input, here is a taste of my new fave song and one that I hope will be great to run to next time I’m out. I’m still waiting for iTunes Canada to pick up this album, in the meantime I’ve ordered a hard copy. Enjoy!
