Running with crazies

Ozzy.

Black Sabbath.

Favorite running music. I mean seriously who doesn't love when someone is screaming crazies in your ear for 30 minutes straight?!??! It is the best! It makes me run harder and faster. But the best part is I don't realize I am even running. For that 30 minutes of listening to constant screaming, my mind shuts off from the world. I have no interaction with anyone. I just run my little heart out! Sweat my little butt off!

I think running is my new favorite cardio. I cannot believe I am actually admitting that to the world, but seriously...I am in love. Yesterday, I ran and ran and before I knew it I hit 3 miles. Yes!!! I ran 3 miles in 36 minutes, and I was so darn proud of myself. I pushed myself. I stepped it up a few notches and it felt great!! I think I am totally addicted now!
{3 miles + biceps and triceps. totally proud of myself!!}

That feeling when you're done.
When your lungs are so clear.
And your body feels so weightless.

There is nothing like it.

That my friends is truly the best!!

Now go out there and run. or walk. But do it with your whole heart and mind in it. You must be focused. Don't let the worldly distractions get in the way. Don't let technology get in the way. Be alone for for 30 minutes or whatever time you choose. It will give you a rush. It will make you proud of yourself. Honest.
And be sure to run with the crazies screaming in your ears.

Exercise is so good for clearing my mind - feels so good! Are your shoes Brooks? Aren't they amazing? I have a purple pair!

you go girl! i've recently developed a love for running and yes, the music has to be fast paced and beating to help me stay motivated. the feeling afterward is worth the determination it takes to get there!!

I run to Linken Park or Eminem. I don't listen to them otherwise but I turn it up as loud as I can take it and run. It great to tune everything completely out!
