“Something Beautiful” by The Newsboys

2012 May 21

I have a LOVE-hate relationship with my spinning class.

I hate how hard it works my body, especially on Monday mornings.

But I LOVE the instructor, the sweat, the calorie burn, the challenge, the leg muscles and the music.

During a ride last week, I heard a song I definitely needed to add to my running playlist. If a song makes me cycle harder and almost want to go running, it’s gotta be on there.

    Rock on Emily. I’m glad you found the song (since I dropped the ball on finishing those texts. I’m pretty sure I was practicing life scarring parenting at the moment I was responding). I just wanted to add that when I was reading your Mothers Day cards, at first I thought George said “You are a RAMBO!” And I thought, . . . you totally are. You are a Rambo chick on a bike! Roar!
    Then I realized it was “rainbow” not Rambo. So sweet.
    You are awesome. I will miss teaching you so much.

    Sincerely,
    Your happily torturing spinning instructor.

    If anyone is Rambo in spinning class, it’s you. We are going to miss you terribly when you leave. I’m so sad I can hardly think about it. But I am excited for your new adventure. Of course, who’s going to torture us now?!?

    Cool! I certainly need more songs like this to motivate me to run. You and I have the same love/hate relationship with spinning AND running.

    When are we going to start cycling together? I think it’s nearly warm enough to go and I need a buddy to get me going.

    Well?
