I really loved the music at the closing ceremonies for the Olympics, didn't you?   It inspired me to make a British, artist only playlist.  When I started looking through my 1330 artist on iTunes I realized that most of the music I own is from the UK.   I narrowed down my "God Save the Queen" playlist to 47 songs and it was tough to decide which ones I should delete.   I started with The Beatles and ended with The XX.  I covered everything from classic rock, to punk, new wave, ska, pop, and electronica.  Download the app 8tracks on your smart phone; you can check it out here.  
Enjoy the music and let me know how you like it.

I'm getting ready for my road trip so I created a few new playlist for the 2,300 miles we will be driving.  My Blue Skies & Deep Beats playlist is the perfect mix for enjoying our time on the road.  Download the 8tracks app, plug your phone into your car and enjoy the music.

Run the World (Girls)

Ok, I know it's June already.  I did promise myself that I would get back to my exercise routine before summer and swimsuit season started!  Well, I decided today that I would do something, anything, no matter what.  

So I put on my running shoes and clicked on my favorite running app, Nike+GPS, and off I went!  Now first let me tell you why I love the Nike+ app.  The app tells me how far, how fast and where I run.  It also tells me how many calories I burned, which I know is not accurate, but I still like to see it.  Then it stores all this info on my iPhone and on the Nike+ website so I can see my progress.  For those of you who need a little motivation, you can send your run info to your Facebook page and your friends can cheer you on.  

I also like that I can listen to all the songs on my iPhone or one of the playlist I make.  Oh, and if I'm feeling sluggish I can press the "power song" button and the power song I picked will play.  Right now it's Beyonce's "Run the World (Girls)" I feel like I can kick some serious butt when that song comes on!

Here's my running playlist, I hope it inspires you to get out there and run, walk or just get moving!  What motivates you to work out?

1. Another One Bites the Dust - Queen
2. Everybody Got Their Something - Nikka Costa
3. Empire State of Mind (feat. Alicia Keys) - Jay Z
