I know what you are thinking, "Is Throwback Thursday just an excuse to share self-indulgent adorable pictures of yourself?" Yeah, maybe. Don't worry, as the weeks go on, I'm sure to stumble into my awkward years. Enjoy the cute ones while you have the chance. This might get scary. Middle school wasn't pretty and the hair got real big in high school.

If you read my blog, you may already know that I have an equal passion for running and music, and a slightly age-inappropriate love for Jack White (i.e. what married 38 year old woman is in love with a rock star?) I invite you to share my own brand of a rock 'n roll running playlist. If you like alternative rock, blues inspired rock, Jack White, or the White Stripes, I think
Click here to check out my Rock 'n Roll Running Playlist throwback post.
To be fair, this post was originally shared on December 5, 2011. I have certainly added some new songs to my playlist since then.
One of my favorite running songs now is "Burn it Down" by Awolnation. The lyrics are "Burn it down, baby, burn it, burn it, down. When I race, I change the lyrics (in my head) to "Run it home, baby, run it, run it, home." It works for me.
"Get up and Go" by the Dangits. Full disclosure: hubby is the drummer in this band. I'm possibly biased, but if this doesn't get you running fast, I don't know what will.
Then I like "My Body" by Young the Giant because I like the lyrics, "My body tells me no, but I won't quit 'cause I want more, 'cause I want more." Who knows what these lyrics really mean, but they fit nicely into endurance running.
I wouldn't be a successful fangirl if I didn't throw a Jack White song into the mix. Let's go with "Sixteen Saltines" by Jack White.
