Running with Celebrities

I got a pocket, a pocket full of sunshine--take me away. A SWEET ESCAPE! So, I've been running with the Black Eyed Peas. It pretty much rocks. My feet have been getting Stronger with Kayne West and his motivational speeches remind me that "that which does not kill me only makes me stronger". Fergie reminds me constantly that Big Girls Don't Cry even when it hurts. It's personal and I've got to get a move on with my life.
There's one runner who keeps talking about a black horse and a cherry tree, but I have no idea who she is. She gets me running fast but then ditches me telling me that I'm not the running mate for her. She's weird.
One of my favorite friends is Daniel from Canada. He can turn any bad day into an awesome run. He reminds me in the mornings, that if I can run 3 miles before breakfast, then I can basically do anything else the day has to throw at me. John Marz and Taylor Swift miss me during my runs--they are good company during warm-ups or steep hills though. The Lifehouse boys can't keep up with us, but they're always there watching and waiting to stretch with me after my run. You and Me and all of the people with nothing to do, nothing to prove but --- wait, we've got lots to do and lots to prove so let's go running!!
I CAN'T BELIEVE THAT I USED TO RUN WITHOUT MUSIC!! What on earth was I thinking??


  1. I beg to differ...The Lifehouse Boys can run with anybody!!! Have you seen Jason Wade???? Holy cow!! JK....I am so glad you are loving running so much!! You are very inspiring. I can't believe you never ran with music before??!! That's nuts!! You'll be runnin' a full marathon by May...Music makes all the difference!! Love you Shan!!

  2. what a creative post! I love it. I used to not run with music either.. oh my word.. it sucks!! I need to come and run with you so I have some motivation.

  3. I ran without music in Malaysia because I didn't want to get attacked and get my iPhone stolen. I ran without music at the gym because I watched the TV monitor instead. Running in my own room with my music blasting through the huge treadmill speakers really pushes me. My girls love it too. Emerson is up to 1.3 miles with a little help from Taylor Swift and that Cyrus chick. Kamryn, well, Kamryn goes for about a quarter of a mile. She loves The Climb from the Hannah Montana movie soundtrack.

  4. KT Tunstall sings Black Horse and a Cherry Tree -
    Some of her other songs are really good. What I like about her, it that everything is her - she records over herself for the background singers etc. ^_^ Also I am very proud of you for running! And I love your blog! xoxo
