Saturday morning, while DH and DD were still sleeping, I slipped out to run my 8.16 miles. In tow were my fully charged IPod shuffle, kitchen timer (I have almost saved enough to buy a heart rate watch), water bottle and granola bar (breakfast at 6am).

My final goal is to run a 10 minute mile on 13ish miles. Today I ran a 12:30 average mile (8 miles = 100 minutes)… want to know why? I killed my IPod! Have you ever tried running a gazillion miles without music? It is incredibly difficult, especially for a lolly-gagger (ME!).

I have no idea what I did, I have been having a bit of trouble with the USB connecting with the computer (well, the USB part of the IPod keeps getting pulled out from its home, HAHA). Maybe it was all the sweat? 8 miles is pretty ridiculous! Well, the IPod passed away at about 6.54 miles, I messed with the ding dang thing for .50 miles and then decided to sing to myself – Because there was NO way I was getting home by the time we had to leave for DD’s 10am YMCA picture’s if there was no music.

LUCKILY, the last song I heard on the music stick was my FAVORITE running song: Inside Out by Cadia. It is a 10 minute mile song, and it is SO motivating in all that is going on in my life… and everywhere else!

You’re not alone
You’re not the only one who’s going through
What it is that ties you up and won’t let go of you
Just look around at every face standing in the crowd
You’ll see exactly what I’m talking about
You use to say you’d rather fade into the background
This is a new day, look at what your heart found
With everything you’ve bottled up and buried down inside
It’s pushing up like springtime
Time to bring it to the light
Everything we try to hide
Are you with me, are you ready to shine
From the inside out
Who cares what it looks like,
Oh yeah, take your heart for a joy ride
Go ahead you know that its alright now
To let the inside out
Go right ahead, you can rub your eyes in disbelief
Pinch yourself, cause maybe this is not a dream
God loves you with a love that’s gonna stick around
You see exactly what
I’m talking about
Time to bring it to the light
Everything we try to hide
Are you with me, are you ready to shine
From the inside out
Who cares what it looks like,
Oh yeah, take your heart for a joy ride
Go ahead you know that its alright now
To let the inside out

Is this not the best song in the world to jam to? Well, I pray you are ready to shine today because this is your day!
Happy Monday!
