Happy National Running Day!

It’s National Running Day! It’s no secret that I L-O-V-E to run so it’s pretty much certain I’ll be celebrating this day.  So how am I going to celebrate?  I’ll definitely go for a run with the running group this evening. If you would like to help me celebrate National Running Day you can by donating to my Team Healthy Kids fundraising efforts.


A couple of years ago I posted why I run.  I can’t believe I can say a couple of years ago when talking about running.  Who would have thought this girl would be running?  I still haven’t really pulled into reality that five years ago I weighed 350+ pounds and now I’m running.  Anyway, my reasons pretty much haven’t changed so I didn’t think it would be cool to share the same post in different words again this year.

I want to share another reason why I run…so I can listen to music.

I don’t really listen to music in the car because I’m either listening to sports radio or NPR.  That’s it.  I’m a pretty boring person.  But running gives me a lot of time to listen to some tunes and not feel like I’m missing out on ALL the information in the world.  Today on National Running Day, I thought I would share some of my favorite running tunes with you.  These songs are great from any workout though so just don’t think of it as a running playlist.
