Music to run to :)

I am to that point that I am running farther that if I do it on my own I need something to do besides just the view (scenery lasts only so much). I was thinking about gathering some great tunes to listen to when I run and below are a list of my favorites. As you can see I have a wide variety of styles

Low Fidelity All Stars – Battleflag

Clean version Low Fidelity All Stars – Battleflag(I like both)

AWOLNation – Sail

Katy Perry Feat. Kayne West – E.T

Salt-n-Pepa – Push It (this is from when I was in 8th grade track if that tells you anything lol)

Guns n Roses – Sweet Child O’ Mine

Foster The People – Pumped Up Kicks

Dropkick Murphys – I’m Shipping Up To Boston – Forest used to be my #1 in the UFC

The Darkness – I Believe In A Thing Called Love

I will probably add to the list as I think of more as just a handful of songs will not do it, if you have any great running tunes please comment below as well :)

Some Inspirational Sayings I Like

Here are some sayings that I really like. I want to keep them close so I can be inspired and motivated by them.
Sore or sorry!

Tragus piercing anyone??

I am super excited! I have been wanting to do this for a long time and finally got the courage to go get my tragus pierced. What’s that you ask? The tragus is part of ear that projects immediately in front of the ear canal.

The piercing didn’t hurt and was made with a small gauge hollow piercing needle, and a captive bead earring inserted. Right now it is somewhat uncomfortable to sleep on that side but I expect that to get better as it heals.

Here’s a pic the day it was done

I went to Inkwell Tattoos to get it done and they were super nice. Only bad thing was that i wanted a gold one and i had to wait forever for it to come in. Some crazy piercing convention in Vegas delayed it :P
