Just like I choose a word for my year, I also like to choose a song. In 2011 my song was this. It felt right, I wanted to embrace happiness. In 2012 it was I Like How It Feels by Enrique Iglesias, mostly so I wouldn’t concentrate on how much I didn’t like how it felt in the middle of dryland training.
The moment I heard this song it was going to be my theme for 2013. These were the lyrics that captured me.
We all got problems, but we deal though
I’m tryin’ to do better now, find my inner peace
Learn my art form, and find my energy
When my backs on the wall, I don’t freeze up
Nah, I find my inner strength and I re-up
Here we go, I know I’ve never been the smartest or wisest
But I realize what it takes
Never dwell in the dark cause the sun always rises
But gotta make it to the next day
It’s a feeling that you get in your lungs when you run
Like you’re runnin’ outta air and your breath won’t come
And you (uh) wheezin’, gotta keep it movin’
Find that extra (uhn) and push your way through it
2013 is the year I’m going to embrace my Inner Ninja (I dare you not to sing along to this. I dare you).
What will your song be for 2013?
