Run to the Music 9

Big Sur Edition 🙂

Oh, for crying out loud, I haven’t shared a music post since June 21??? How the flip did that happen?  Also, I started these posts when I was training for San Francisco in 2016 and I am only on 9? Slacker.

Well, it’s a good thing I have 2 songs today then.

Shinedown- Devil

I went to grab this video for this post and fell down a YouTube hole watching ALL the Shinedown videos.   I could spend a long time there.

Ok, back to the post- I love this band, this band has got me through training and with be with me on race day and if I have my way, I will see them in concert in August. 🤞 I’ve been a fan for years and can find a song to fit any purpose.  If you follow me on Instagram, then you may have seen me reference them in a #tbt post last week.  And FYI, they have the best cover of Simple Man from Lynyrd Skynyrd ever, actually it might be the best version ever.  Yes, I said that.

I loved this song when it first came out just because it was awesome, seriously, I’m hard pressed to think of one of their songs I don’t like- but then I watched a behind the scenes about the meaning of the song.   The “devil” being referred to is the thing that scares you whatever that may be.  So for me right now that could be the miles, the hills, my leg, my side- I have so many options!   So, yeah, I will playing this when things are getting heavy… like my legs.  😛

  • Side note- love the band, love the song but the video is a little odd.  I could have done with the baby bird moment.  Chew your own damn food.🤣

Papa Roach- Born for Greatness

On the other hand, this video is awesome if you stick around to the end.   I’ve shared this song before actually- last April with only a lyric video- but it hasn’t left ANY of my playlists since.  In fact it spawned my motto for the year- Sound the Alarm.  However I never hit publish on that post so surprise!   This song reminds me that we can be better and do better if we only wake up.     And I try not to whine too much when I think about the fact that they are on tour in CA this year but it either doesn’t fit my schedule or is in a town I won’t go to at night.  😢

I have another song that helps get me up hills these days but I’ll save that for another day.

What’s in your ear these days?

    Great bands and songs! Those will get you up some hills, for sure. I’m sorry to read that you’re having these troubles, Fallon. Is it related to your hamstrings maybe? My doc got me to start physical therapy. The exercises hurt (because I’m so inflexible) but they help, especially with the tightness. How is the ab region pain going?

    1. So many hills! I guess it could be my hamstrings, it seems to pull more down from my lower stomach area to the leg though. I have been doing my PT exercises that doctor gave me for my back in January to see if that helps any. My side pain is manageable, it’s sad that I’ve just kind of adjusted to living with it. I had a really bad day last week but it eased the following day. I see that doctor in the middle of May so fingers crossed for some answers.

        crossing my fingers for you. Also, I know what you mean about pain you just learn to live with. I hope you have some answers (and real solutions!) soon!

    I’ll have to check them out as I haven’t heard of either and could use a new song in the running lineup
