Musical Monday


Musical Monday


I have a confession to make... I've been starting to "train" for 5ks again. I know I get bored pretty quickly with "work outs" so this is my new goal. I love treadmills, so I've been going in the morning before Adam goes to work and have been attempting at starting to run again. Gosh it's hard, and it's been a while, and mostly I just walk fast.

When I'm going MUSIC is my big motivator, well that and remembering how I looked 5 years ago when I got married compared to now...

So I figure I'll do a series for this month on what's on my MP3 player. I'll be the first to admit that I have an interesting range of work out worthy songs. I'd love to hear your work out must haves too! I need some new motivation!

This week's choice is in honor of the other places I've lived. It came up on my playlist and has a great speed for the treamill being around 5.3 or so. This song actually almost makes me cry with nostalgia. Especially the memory of Darby singing it on my voicemail the summer Adam and I spent back in Ohio.

Tomorrow Adam, Max and I leave on a roadtrip to spend the week in Dallas with great great great friends. You see it's been just under a year since we've moved and I've definitely missed it so much. Looking forward to friends, chubby babies and grown up kiddos, lots of good Mexican food (especially Chuy's!), not sitting in the second row at church, hearing Chaplain Bill play the horn at graduation, and being steeped in the tradition of DTS once again. Oh how I've missed it.

I visited to ask when I should start addressing things to Catherine St., but I was met w/ a song that made me misty-eyed!
Miss you, and I'll continue writing to Main St.?
Lots of love and health to you!
