Have y'all read Erin from BlueEyedBride? Well if not, you're missing out!
Tonight on her blog she asked, What’s your strut song?
She explained the strut song like this:
"You know the one. You’re walking through the grocery store, with your baby in the buggy and you can hear a rhythm in your head. It puts a bounce in your step.
Or you’re walking into a day of work and think, 'This would be so much more fun if when I entered the building, my theme song would come on and I could strut across the room.'"
Hands down, my strut song is Girl on Fire by Alicia Keys.
With the weight loss and running milestones, I often get stuck in the grind of it all. You know I get into staying focused and accomplishing the task in front of me. As a result, I don't come up for air or let myself celebrate. This song does that for me. It empowers me.
And without fail, I always want to belt out the chorus and I walk a little taller after hearing it. (Walking taller is a big deal when you're 5'4'' on a good day people.)
An honorable mention and the reason why I want to run to oldies and classic rock for my half marathon this summer is Long Cool Woman (In A Black Dress) by The Hollies.
This song makes me think that I actually look cool when I air-guitar it in the car. It also just pumps me up when I'm on a run.
So come on party people, what is your strut song?
