My Favorite Things (Read 133 times)

    Yeah, my mind tends to wander on recovery jogs.

     

    New pairs of Asics with gold and black laces

    Going on long runs and training for races

    Putting old race bibs in binders with rings

    These are a few of my favorite things

     

    Tempos and intervals, sore muscle rollers

    Watching that guy beat me pushing a stroller

    Suffering pain that a marathon brings

    These are a few of my favorite things

     

    Lining up next to those fast age group aces

    Hanging my medals in prominent places

    Soaking in sweat that the hot summer brings

    These are a few of my favorite things

     

    When the boss barks

    When the kids scream

    When I'm feeling sad

    I simply remember my favorite things

    And then I don't feeeeeeeeeeellllllll

    So bad

      Just B.S.


        One of my favorite songs of all time with new lyrics!!

        I used to sing it to my kids all the time.Smile

        But now it has been reworked and it's even better.

         

        Love it!

         

        P.S. I was in the musical in high school and each song has been forever seared into my memory

         

        Question: How do you solve a problem like Braaaad???

         

        Sorry LTH, couldnt help myself.

          That's pretty great.

                          I love it - singing along...

                          Marathons are habit-forming...
