Thank you Beyoncé

I have Beyoncé to thank for my run tonight.

While trucking along on the treadmill, I decided that “Run the World (Girls)” might just be the best song ever to listen to while running. Admittedly, maybe not for everyone — the dudes out there might not feel me — but the ladies must. I mean think about it…if these lyrics can’t keep a lady running, what can?

This is pretty much what was happening in my head tonight:

B: Who run the world? GIRLS

Me: Running stinks

B: Who run this mutha?

Me: When will this run be over?

B: This goes out to all my girls that’s in the club rocking the latest

Me: I just want to go home, sit on the couch and watch the latest episode of Smash

B: I remind you I’m so hood with this

Me: Um, seriously…when is this going to be over? Should I stop now?

B: I’m reppin’ for the girls who taking over the world, help me raise a glass for the college grads

Me: Remind me why I’m doing this…oh my wedding dress, yes, yes of course

B: Strong enough to bear the children

Me: Hey, you’re actually doing pretty good

B: Who run the world? GIRLS...

Me: All done — nice work!

I can’t say that I’m a person who loves running (unfortunately). To be quite honest, most of the time I don’t want to go to the gym and run, but I force myself to and about 99.9% of the time I feel good about myself when I’m done. Some days it’s hard to just get myself to the gym, and some days I get to the gym okay, but it’s hard to physically get myself through a workout. Tonight I remembered why music really helps me get through a workout. I haven’t been bringing my iPod lately while I run (for whatever reason…not quite sure), but I needed an extra pick-me-up today, so I created a playlist and thankfully the music really kept me running. Without it I feel like I would have been very tempted to give up after five minutes, but Beyoncé worked like a charm. So, thank you. ;)

My playlist from tonight’s run:

  • Countdown
  • Run the World (Girls)
  • Love on Top
  • Check On It
  • Get Me Bodied
  • Upgrade U
  • Ego
  • Ring the Alarm

What gets you through a workout?
