New Jams in time for the holidays!

Well, well, well, ever since I got my Christmas tree my cold black heart has been filled with jolly thoughts and Christmas joy. All I can think about is candy canes dancing in my head, presents under the tree, peppermint schapps  and a kiss under the mistletoe. Okay, I might have had too much coffee this morning for that last line and all that gushy stuff is way too much for me. Anyways, in my holly, jolly spirit, I’ve been digging up some freakin’ sweet new jams for working out. It seems I have a small obsession with Gucci Mane, and his new CD doesn’t disappoint at all. Then yesterday I found out my hero, Gucci Mane is in jail… I don’t know how I feel about that, his music is still good, so meh!

But without further ado, I’ve linked to the you tube videos, which I must put in my warning for. Obviously, there are some rap songs. Rappers like girls scantily dressed and there may be some grabbing of the junk. So just an FYI. I don’t ‘endorse’ these videos, or anything in them, but I do laugh at them and enjoy them. For me, the more cussing while running the merrier, yet every now and then I have one that is just a random little gem, so that’s why Lady Antebellum and my personal favorite, Vitamin String Quartet, is on the list as well. If you haven’t ever heard of Vitamin String Quartet, I advise you to youtube them and listen to their stuff. It’s EPIC covers of great songs. I listen to it at work all the time.

    quick question for you…how long would you estimate that I will have to repeat to myself “it is fun to run, it is fun to run’ before I can magically levitate off the couch and hit the bricks? Just kidding! I run vicariously through you! Luckily, I skip the ice baths! BBBBBRRRRRR!
