I am working on my race recap, promise, I just haven’t felt great so my attention span has been even shorter than usual. 😛 A week ago, I accidentally put my iPod on shuffle all. Oops. But wait, I kind of love it. It’s been like a walk down memory lane meets a trivia challenge all in one- name that tune/artist in 20 seconds!
There has been a lot of what the hell was I thinking?! I’ve had to Shazaam some of my own music! There are more than a few “unknown artists” on my iPod thanks to a less than stellar computer switch a years ago. On the upside, I finally found my missing 30 Seconds to Mar album that had mysteriously “disappeared”.
Anyways, an old running favorite of mine came on today while I was driving home. I almost skipped it- I listened to it on every run or race back when I was in awesome shape and throwing down my best times at every race. It’s been a long and bumpy road since then and I didn’t feel worthy of the song.
Who thinks like that?! So in a fit of rebellion against myself and all my doubts, I cranked up the volume and shouted along. Off key but whatever. 😎
Avery Watts- A Cut Above
Heads up- I’d never seen the video of this song before so when I pulled it up on YouTube I was a little confused- 7 minutes long? It starts like an inspirational Nike commercial, who knew? The song starts around 4 minutes in. The beginning is a little shout-y odd so if you want to skip it, click on the second video. 😛
Who knew you could start a video at at certain point?!
I did warn you my music taste was a little over the place. The next song was Shania Twain.
