My Running Mix

I was asked about my running mix from a reader after my Half Marathon and I wanted to let everyone know what pumps me up on my runs. I love running to music, even though recently, I have been running technology free. Music pumps me up. It totally kept me going on miles 6+ during the half. I was rocking out to Britney Spears like nobody’s business! It just takes my mind off the mileage and gets me pumping along to the beat. I am a big believer in that if you listed to faster paced songs, you run faster. That’s why I fill my ‘Run’ playlist with some booty-shaking tunes:

  1. Got Money – Lil Wayne & T-Pain
  2. Feel Good Inc. – Gorillaz
  3. Hold Me Now – Polyphonic Spree
  4. Sugar, We’re Going Down – Fall Out Boy
  5. The Glamorous Life – Paul Oakenfold
  6. Lose My Breath – Destiny’s Child
  7. Breathe – Fabolous
  8. Workout Plan – Kanye West
  9. Hips Don’t Lie – Shakira
  10. Gimme More – Britney Spears
  11. Piece of Me – Britney Spears
  12. Circus – Britney Spears
  13. Kill the Lights – Britney Spears
  14. Shattered Glass – Britney Spears
  15. If You Seek Amy – Britney Spears
  16. Toxic- Britney Spears
  17. Stronger – Britney Spears
  18. I Got That Boom Boom – Britney Spears
  19. Damaged – Danity Kane
  20. Hollaback Girl – Gwen Stefani
  21. Rich Girl – Gwen Stefani
  22. Life’s What You Make It – Miley Cyrus
  23. Poker Face – Lady Gaga
  24. Just Dance – Lady Gaga
  25. Girl’s Night Out – Miley Cyrus
  26. Pop- N*Sync
  27. Push Up – Freestylers
  28. Freakum Dress – Beyonce
  29. Feedback – Janet Jackson
  30. Pull Over That Ass Too Fat – Trick Daddy
  31. Everytime We Touch – Cascada
  32. Boys of Summer – Ataris
  33. Call On Me – Eric Prydz

I also enjoy the GirlTalk mixes. They are perfect for my running music ADD, where I get bored of certain songs after a minute or two and need to switch it up a bit! Also, as previously mentioned, I heart Jay Blahnik. I love the Nike training runs by Serena Williams, All American Rejects and the Human Race specific ones. I try to do one or two of those a week, since they are speed training workouts. Love those!

What are your favorite running/workout songs?

My New Favorite Cocktail

Last night Mich and I were wiped out after a day full of shopping and a nice relaxing dinner, so we decided to hang out last night and watch a movie (or two). We started with Made of Honor, with Patrick Dempsey <swoon> and then watched Twilight, with Cam Gigandet <double swoon>. Mich had never seen either of those movies, so I was excited to see what she thought. Also, she has apparently been living under a rock, because other than ‘I think Twilight has something to do with Vampires,’ she had no background of the story. I kept my mouth shut throughout the movie because I wanted to see what she thought.

During our double feature movie night, we obviously had some snacks. I brought with me some Sonny & Joe’s Hot Enough Hummus. Remember when they sent me 7 different types of hummus? Yea, I am still working on those!

This hummus was H-O-T..HOT! And we totally loved it. I mixed around the hot peppers, with the rest of the hummus and it was totally a spicy fiesta in my mouth! Very fiery, but muy tasty! mas pics 934

Remember when Kashi sent me all those fun products to try? Yea, I am still working on those as well! I brought with me to the beach the TLC Fire-Roasted Vegetable crackers.

These crackers are made of red and green bell peppers, tomatoes, carrots, and onions all roasted together! Perfect pairing with the hummus. They were really good. I love the size of the cracker, they are great for dipping, and is packed with a lot of flavor!

On the way home from dinner last night, we stopped at the liquor store to pick up some drinks for movie night. They had a little tasting going on, so I decided to try out some new things. I have been reading a lot about the Sweet Tea Vodka, and I have been wanting to try it, and it was there to test at the tasting, so I am pretty sure it was meant to be!

I love sweet tea. Total southern girl thing. When I was looking at colleges, part of me REALLY wanted to go to school down south because they all were stocked with sweet tea. It may or may not have been on my pro/con list for schools that my dad made me write. Also on there, may have been Greek life and a football team! Hey, I knew what was important to me in deciding where I wanted to go to school.

Anywho, I loved this vodka. Firefly Sweet Tea totally hit the spot. When you drink it down, it tastes like sweet tea with a little aftertaste of vodka. They have tons of flavors, and you better believe I am going to be trying the Raspberry one too! I may make this my official birthday drink for next weekend!

Here are our drinks concoctions from last night. I had my Sweet Tea. I put half the vodka in the cup and half water with some ice. 70 proof baby! Mich had some plain vodka with cranberry and a splash of o.j. I think that is called something fancy, maybe a vodka sunrise?

It was a fun night with great snacks and fabulous cocktails! Yay for girls beach weekend!
