I am on week 6 of the Couch to 5K program.
Instead of using my handy go-to "running" playlist on my iPod, I decided to dare the unknown and head down the "shuffle" path. This is dangerous for me. I have roughly 2700 songs on it. Some of which I like, some of which I have to keep giving myself mental reminders to delete that one. Regardless, I have a lot of music on it.
So, I'm into the 2nd leg of my run and I happened upon a song that I truly don't think I've heard in years. In fact, I don't think this song even has a title. In my iPod it's listed as "September 11th Tribute". Not a good song to run too, but I heard it out. And then I cried.
I don't even think I can call it a song. It's basically kind of a song, but mainly has voice overs in it-most of George W. Some of interviews with people. It's pretty heavy.
I'm not sure why I didn't just hit the little arrow button on the right to move onto the next song. I just felt a need to listen to it.
The part that hit me was when I heard the George W. voice over give this quote: "Whether we bring our enemies to justice or bring justice to our enemies, justice will be done."
I don't know-I guess in light of the recent news of Osama's death, I just felt this overwhelming feeling of....I don't know what. I can't explain it. All I know is that I cried while I was running. It was odd. But okay in some weird way.
After the song was done, I wiped my eyes and moved on. And then I put a smile on my face because the next song was...well, here you go:
Hope you're smiling!
PS-I actually saw them in concert. July 5th, 1989.
