Just like fire

Good Monday Morning to you all.

Are you ready to run this morning. Dressed? Not yet? Had your tea? Motivated? 

I've got a song written especially for us today. 

It's by P!nk, and if you listen to the words, you KNOW she wrote it for us runners/walkers. Yes, yes, I know she wrote it for Alice, I can dream...

Clearly P!nk also has a problem getting up in the mornings without her tea. Watch this and tell me you don't smile when her man asks her if she's just going to hang around all day.

I'm going to let the lyrics do the encouraging today:

"We came here to run it, run it, run it
We came here to run it, run it, run it
Just like fire, burning up the way
If I can light the world up for just one day
Watch this madness, colorful charade
No one can be just like me any way
Just like magic, I'll be flying free
I'mma disappear when they come for me
I kick that ceiling, what you gonna say?
No one can be just like me any way
Just like fire, uh"

And then there's 

"Impossible? Please
Watch, I do it with ease
You just gotta believe
Come on, come on with me....
Running, running, running
Just like fire
Run it, run it, run it"

How can you not? And then for South Africans, there are all the beautiful colours around us. The cool blue crispness of the mornings, sun on our backs. Come on, don't you want to get out  there? It's gorgeous, and it's not going to be like this for much longer. Winter is approaching. Let's do this. Today.

Just like fire. Don't you think?

Last week's motivation - Time to Dance.

Happy running everyone.
