#1. best days of your life- kellie pickler
every time i hear this song it brings me back to my very first race ever. the ll bean 4th of july 10k. it was the first song to play on my ipod and it was the best day of my life...kinda:) i was pretty proud of myself for being there that day.
#2. amazing grace- dropkick murphys
this was the first song on my ipod at the 2009 beach 2 beacon 10k. don't ask me why i remember, but i do. and now whenever i hear it, it brings me back to the starting line with the other 5,999 people that were there. getting to the top of that first hill and looking behind you at the sea of runners is pretty cool!
#3 poker face- lady gaga
mile 10 of my first half marathon.
this was at the starting line of the mdi marathon & relay. this was my first race back from being preggo and i was pretty nervous. i had the first leg of the relay 8.x miles. once this played i got pumped up!! i'm going to request they play it again next year when i will be running my first full marathon!
#5 somebody to love- cast of glee
this played around mile 4 of mdi. i remember we had just climbed a massive hill (duh! it's mdi, what do you expect) and we were on a nice downhill stretch. i was feeling surprisingly good and was proud of myself for making it up the hill. i decided to bless the rest of the runners with my lovely voice, pretended i was on american idol and sang the song out loud. my friend kate that was running with me loved every minute of my
#6 airplanes- b.o.b featuring hayley williams
for a while when i was training for mdi my ipod was set to play the playlist alphabetically and of course this was the first song that played every time i went out for a run. so naturally it reminds me of my mdi training.
#7 hey, soul sister- train
i love this song and i have since it came out. it will always remind me of 2010. sam also loves this song and he used to tweet a lot about how he and his wife loved listening to it. now when i hear it, it reminds me of him. sam is THE reason why i have started a train 4 autism chapter in maine and why i am running my first marathon. he indirectly gave me the ass kicking that i needed at a time when i really needed it. not sure he knows that...oh well, he does now!:-) fun fact: this song came on my ipod just as i was crossing the finish line for the operation jack 6.1 mile satellite run. weird.
#8 i do not hook up- kelly clarkson
this is for my dear, amazing, funny, fantastic, thoughtful, inspirational, beautiful, best friend danielle. we attended this concert together. i'm pretty sure we were the oldest peeps there. that's ok, at least we could buy beer...and we did, lots of it!!! xoxo d.
#9 sweet caroline- neil diamond
what red sox fan doesn't have this on their playlist?? it's fun when im running with my husband and randomly shout out "so good! so good! so good!". of course it's better singing it at fenway!
#10 o holy night- nsync
haha, yup! you read that right! i love acapella music, i have since i was in middle school and we had a group come sing at our school. D put this on a cd she made me a few years ago and it's now on my running mix. there is nothing like christmas in july!
so there you have it, 10 songs from my ipod. every time i hear each of these it brings me back somewhere!
what's on your playlist???
