Playlist Friday??

So, you probably were wondering what happened to this week's Playlist Wednesday? WELL, yesterday was my mom's birthday so I was hanging out with my family all evening when I got home from work so the post never made it up and work has been wearing me out this week! But good news, this week's playlist is here now! GET EXCITED! This week's playlist is inspired by my half marathon PR this past Sunday and here are my favorite 13 songs from my Divas Half Marathon playlist!

  • I Do Not Hook Up- Kelly Clarkson
    • Clearly I love this song for so many reasons! Kelly Clarkson's song just make me feel so empowered haha, I love it!
  • Independent Women Part 1- Destiny's Child
    • Again, this song makes me feel invincible! I loved hearing this during my race and gave me that extra pick-me-up after the dreaded nosebleed that slowed me down so much!
  • Come Clean- Hilary Duff
    • OK every time I hear this song I think of everyone's favorite MTV show of the early 2000s (any Laguna Beach lovers like me??!) and I always sing it out loud! My half marathon was no exception! 
  • Let's Go (feat. Ne-Yo)- Calvin Harris
    • Again, anything Calvin Harris always makes me speed up in my running intervals and this song seriously helped me so much during my HM.  I was hoping to hear the Elie Goulding& Calvin Harris song but if you can imagine, that song never came on during my run! UGH why did I add so many songs to my playlist??!
  • Fighter- Christina Aguilera
    • This song always got me going when I was in law school and before finals so I thought this would be a great addition to my HM playlist and it was! What a great life decision adding this song was! It made me literally fight through the pain of blisters on the bottoms of my feet and keep going to the finish!
  • Dirrty- Christina Aguilera feat. Redman
    • Haha, I have no words for this song other than unlike my other rap songs, this video needs you to verify your age before it will let you watch haahah
  • Encore- Eminem
    • Eminem is hands down the best for any running playlist!
  • Cupid Chokehold- Gym Class Heroes
    • I was OBSESSED with this song back in 2006 and I love that I remembered to add it to my playlist!
  • Your Body- Christina Aguilera 
    • Now, this is a new one of hers. Relatively new- came out about 6-7 mos ago but it's so freaking catchy and Christina is sounding AMAZING again!
  • What's Luv- Fat Joe ft Ashanti
    • What ever happened to Fat Joe? Didn't he lose a lot of weight?? I love Ashanti in this one- and I love how sassy she is in Army Wives this season!
  • Tik Tok- Ke$ha
    • Ke$ha Ke$ha Ke$ha, what a hot mess. And I love it. Who wouldn't love hearing &subsequently singing all the nonsensical lyrics??! "Woke up feeling like p.diddy.." haha amazing.
  • Dirty Dancing- NKOTB
    • OK, I just have to say 2 things: DONNIE. WAHLBERG. Please do yourself a favor and click on the link, watch the video, and oogle at that beautiful old man that I love.  I will always remember him as my first crush EVER in LIFE when I was tiny and I never forgot him.  He's like been the backbone of getting NKOTB back together in 2008 for one of the best cds ever (The Block-- this song was on that cd) and even now with their new cd and all of it's amazingness. And he's so beautiful even for an old man. Love him.
  • One Moment in Time- Whitney Houston
    • Last but not least, I just feel the need to share how much I love this song.  I find it so inspirational when I run even though it's not super upbeat. Listen to the lyrics (it was written/performed for the 1988 Summer Olympics)- it really does help me during my races and forces me to realize that this is my time to run the best time possible and to give everything I have for that race!
