My Strut Song

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?

Happy Tuesday!

Hi y'all! The name's Samantha. You can call me Sam if you like. I am a lover to a boy I met at Falls Creek in the summer of 2005, that is a student of Jesus, a Sooner born and Sooner bred and when I die I'll be Sooner dead, Democrat by party, blonde to the core, and oldies but goodies kind of girl.
