power to the…

people

WOMEN.

Today marks the halfway point of my half marathon training, and let me just say that my body is t-i-r-e-d, TIRED. But, in a moment of sheer brilliance and complete thoughtless stamina, my parter in crime Kelly and I made it to the 8 mile mark. Mind you, running was a completely foreign concept to me approximately 5.5 weeks ago. Now, I feel strong, empowered, and quite literally invincible. I do owe a large handful of the credit to music, and its ability to keep my mind at ease while my body is facing the biggest challenge I’ve ever thrown at it… which is why I am dedicating this playlist to all of my favorite female vocalists.

equally strong, equally courageous, and vulnerable, these women and the emotions that sneak through their cleverly crafted lyrics serve as my inspiration — running or not.

enjoy!
