Today's Tuesdays on The Run link up is about music and running music, and of course, I love to talk about music, maybe a little too much. So, linking up with Patty, Erika, and Marcia to talk about my favorite songs to run to.
By the way, last night, as I walked into Zumba with Susan, guess what song she was doing for warm up? That dreadful Justin Timberlake song! Ugh! I can't wait away from it! I took my sweet time putting on my sneakers, to delay dancing to the song. I guess I can't stop the feeling.... but I do wish I could stop that song!
I use my MP3 player for training and for long runs, like anything over 6 miles. This MP3 player has over 2,000 songs including Christmas songs. And lucky for me, my MP3 also plays the radio, so NPR is always available too!
Here are a few random songs that get me moving.
Quien Me Ha Robado Tu Corazon- Liberacion
When I was a teenager, my older sister loved this song. I wanted to be a rebel to I told her that it was an awful song and she had bad taste. Fastforward 20 years later, and this bring me memories of spending time with my sister, and it keeps me moving when running up the hills. It's cheesy, it's old, and perfect for a slow mile.
Sergio Mendes - Magalenha
This song is the perfect samba song! It starts out slow, and moves up the beat and keeps it steady to the end. I love this song in Zumba and when running. And if you think that I won't sing this song, because it's in Portuguese, you would be wrong!
What Up- Hector Guerra
This is my feel good song! The mix of Banda music and hip hop is perfect.
By The Way - The Red Hot Chilli Peppers
Now that I think of it, most of this songs I use for hill training.
I know some people listen to Podcast too, and in that note, here are a few podcast I'm loving too
Another Mother Runner- they talk a lot about running, so if you are not a mother, don't be intimidated by the tittle.
Invisibilia- New Season
Reveal - Their last podcast on corrupt agents in the Border Patrol had me on the edge of my toes... because I was running when I heard it.
