There It is kids! (oh by the way, some of these are NOT kid friendly so please listen to it first before you jam it in the minivan full of kiddos).

You are looking at his list thinking, man she likes a lot of different stuff, it isn't all from the same genre.  You are right.  I can't listen to strictly hip hop for 2 1/2 hours or alternative for 2 1/2 hours. And some of them don't have the best beat but they have HUGE meaning to me.  For example:
  • Clouds by Zach Sobiech, this song always makes me think of my Cousin Abby. She past away a couple of years ago due to Kidney Cancer. But this song always makes me smile and think of her. This song WILL ALWAYS BE ON MY PLAY LIST!
  • Why Can't We Be Friends by Smash Mouth makes me think of my friend Emily from high school. Just good memories of us jamming out to this in her car.
  • Eye of the Tiger  by Survivor Eye of the Tiger makes me think of Rocky which makes me think of my Dad.  We have both seen that movie too many times to count. Good movie, Good song, Good memories. :)
  • One of These Days by FFH makes me think of TEC (Teens Encounter Christ).  I LOVE this song. and it makes me think of so many GREAT people. Those people helped shape me into the person I am today.
  • Pardon Me by Incubus makes me think of Jed. It was one of the first songs he told me I HAD TO DOWNLOAD in college.  He was right, it was my favorite song for a long time.
  • Levels a (Skrillex Remix) by Avicii  makes me think of Jed, he likes Skrillex and listens to them in the barn a lot.
  • 'Till I Collapse by Eminem & Nate Dogg The Eminem is just a good song to keep me going, one step at a time.
  • Fishin' In the Dark by Nitty Gritty Dirt Band was added because it is one of friends favorite songs. She knows I'm talking about her!! :)
Some of the meanings I am going to keep to myself. Just because. But I do want to say thank you to everyone who suggested something.  I was suggested "Let it go" which is from Frozen and I have to say it is a good song, but wasn't a good song to run to.  I haven't seen the movie so I am thinking after that I might feel differently. I was also recommended any song by Cannibal Corpse and that stuff is HARD CORE, BUT I found that it wasn't that bad.  In fact I found myself listening to it while I worked. ODD I KNOW! But I wasn't sure it would make a good running music, so I may have to experiment with it at a later date.

I feel like I learned a lot about some of you when asking you about songs. And I found some music that I didn't know about. So thank you! I do have some songs that I need to listen to that was suggested by sister in law that I know I will like , but I just haven't had the time to listen to them. So I might add some to this list. But I think I have about 3 hours worth of music and with that said, I BETTER NOT HEAR ALL OF THIS MUSIC. I should be done around the 2 1/2 hour mark.

I am starting to get butterflies in my stomach, but I'm also excited for tomorrow. I will have my phone on me and if you feel compelled to text me or call me during the race, PLEASE do so.  I can have Siri check my text messages while I have my headphones on or I can talk while I am running. The race starts at 7:00 AM CST (I think most of you are in KS, but just in case) and I should be done around 9:30 (let's hope). I am serious when I say, please contact me during the race because I have a feeling that any encouragement will HELP me cross that finish line.

If you follow me on Facebook or instagram I will do my best to post pictures before and after the race. Now I just need to hydrate and eat well until then. Which shouldn't be a problem because tomorrow is ALL I can think about!!

Have a good weekend folks. And wish me luck!
