Don't blink. Just run.

Where training meets fandom. And everything in between.

Face The Music Friday #32

I’m not even going to summarize my workouts because the only thing that I did this week was the Newport 10 Miler on Sunday. Done.

There are a lot of things that went on this week at work, and will continue to for probably a few months, that are just frying my brain on a daily basis. I can’t really go into it because I’m not sure how confidential most of it is so I’ll just leave it at “very stressful”! My anxiety goes through the roof all day long and by the time I get home I want to do absolutely nothing and when I get up I just want to go right back to bed.

I have a busy weekend coming up that I plan on enjoying to it’s fullest. Tomorrow I run BoldrDash with my Unleashed teammates and couldn’t be more excited! I love training with these people and can’t wait to see them in their elite element. I, on the other hand, am so far from elite I should probably be banished from that gym. HAHA

Sunday I’ll be volunteering at the water stop for the Cox Rhode Races marathon and half. I know a couple of people I need to keep an eye out for, but if you’ll be there let me know so I can cheer for you!

Race season is upon me so suddenly, I feel like it snuck up on me. I’ve got 3 races this month (every other weekend), including goal #1 – Tough Mudder. I’m excited but nervous about all my races. Training hasn’t gone exactly as planned lately and I have no one to blame but myself so I just need to figure out how to get my head straight and move on.

Just a quick post today with the update and the song choice for the week. I should note, I listen to 90% alternative/rock music, however I will listen to almost anything and have quite the plethora of song styles in my iTunes. In junior high, I had a rap phase, but don’t really listen to much of it nowadays unless it’s on mainstream radio and I catch it. I picked this song because I do like it, but I was reminded of it when I saw a video of Jimmy Fallon and Emma Stone do a lip sync battle and that was one of the songs. So today, you get 3 videos – the original song video, the Jimmy/Emma video and the video that is what I think of when I hear this song (hint: it’s got JT in it).


All I Do Is Win – DJ Khaled (and guests) – Original


Lip Sync Battle w/ Jimmy and Emma


SNL video w/ JT – the song specifically is just before the 2:00 mark, but the whole thing is funny (sorry couldn’t find whole skit on YouTube so just click on the link to watch)
