I’ve previously published a post on this blog about the weird things I do while running.
Well, after today’s beach run, I think I can officially add another one to the list.
I intensely lip sync to powerful songs from musicals or fantastic singers like Whitney Houston whenever they come on my iPod.
I really, really wish I had an amazing singing voice because I love to sing, but lip syncing and pretending I’m singing like Celine Dion or Christina Aguilera is just about as close to amazing as I am going to get. I always find myself lip syncing obnoxiously to songs when I run outside and have to remind myself to reel it in when I run past people so they don’t think I’m some kind of a looney.
Today’s lip syncing song of choice: River Deep, Mountain High
"Do I love you,
My oh my,
River deep, mountain high"
I love every version of the song (Tina Turner, Celine Dion), but the most recent version of the song by the cast of Glee makes me want to jump around and dance. It’s a winner.
And speaking of getting a little too into the music on my iPod, when the song “Club Can’t Handle Me” came on, I had one mile to go in my planned five mile run. I was losing steam and was apparently a little delirious because I started singing, “The beach can’t even handle me right now” instead of the “club” and found this way too amusing. It made me dig deep and run faster though, so I guess it worked!
Five miles done!
Breakfast today started with a freshly brewed cup of coffee, sipped while chatting away with my grandma.
And then I proceeded to snack my way through my morning meal…
Love the blueberry bliss Luna bar! It reminds me of blueberry coffee cake.
Blueberries + Nuts (x3)
And I had about three spoonfuls of almond butter.
Note to self: Assemble a plate with an actual breakfast tomorrow. I’m satisfied, but I much prefer sitting down to an actual meal to snacking my way through breakfast.
Question of the Morning
- Do you do anything particularly unusual when you workout or run?
