I can be strong, out on this lonely run



Well, the taper has set in. I've run every other day this week: Mon/Weds/Fri, 15k/8k/6k. That's it. My legs are feeling light, the excitement is escalating and my life has become an extended pre-race dance party (what else would you do with all this pent up energy?!). I'm ready to RUN! Lady Gaga is playing host to most of my moves, so I thought it appropriate to share her most relevant pre-race pump up jam to get ya'll psyched for the big race. Works for me!



The marathon can be a lonely run. But I WILL be strong!

We can be strong
We can be strong
Out on this lonely run
On the road to love

We can be strong
We can be strong
Follow that unicorn
On the road to love

Run, run with her t-
Run, with-
Run, run with her top down
Baby she flies
Run, run with the fury of a
Saint in her eyes

Run, run, ha cha cha cha
Baby she goes
With blonde hair and a gun
Smokin' under her toes


Whoa ooh oh oh oh
Whoa ooh oh oh oh
Ride, ride, pony, ride, ride
Whoa ooh oh oh oh
Whoa ooh oh oh oh
Ride, ride, pony, tonight

We can be strong
We can be strong
Out on this lonely run
On the road to love

We can be strong
We can be strong
Follow that unicorn
On the road to love

I'm on the roa-oa-oa-oad
I'm on the road to love
I'm on the roa-oa-oa-oad
I'm on the road to love

She's just a CANADIAN
Ridin' a dream
And she's got rainbow syrup
In her heart that she bleeds
She don't care if your papers
Or your love is the law
She's a free soul burning roads
With a flag in her bra


Whoa ooh oh oh oh
Whoa ooh oh oh oh
Ride, ride, pony, ride, ride
Whoa ooh oh oh oh
Whoa ooh oh oh oh
Ride, ride, pony, tonight

We can be strong
We can be strong
Out on this lonely run
On the road to love
We can be strong
Follow that unicorn
On the road to love

I'm on the roa-oa-oa-oad
I'm on the road to love
I'm on the roa-oa-oa-oad
I'm on the road to love

Get your hot rods ready to rumble
'Cause were gonna fall in love tonight
Get your hot rods ready to rumble
'Cause we're gonna drink until we die


Get your hot rods ready to rumble
'Cause were gonna fall in love tonight
Get your hot rods ready to rumble
'Cause we're gonna drink until we die

Below is a video of my finish at Ottawa last year. I vow to finish strong enough such that I can outkick someone running DIRECTLY BESIDE ME. Oh wowie.
