Tuesday Tunes - Boston Marathon Edition

Yesterday was a horrific day in the lives of Americans, and was especially painful to the running community.
In light if such sadness, I thought I should skip Tuesday Tunes.  But then I remembered the power of music to heal and encourage.  So this is a special edition of Tuesday Tunes which will (hopefully) include songs to encourage you as you run today in honor of the victims and loved ones of this act of terrorism.

Before I list the songs, I wanted to link to a friend's blog post, which I think quite eloquently expresses what a lot of us are feeling.  It is a beautiful post and worth reading.

Run for Your Life - The Fray - 161 bpm
This was the very first song I thought of and I think it really captures the sense of loss and community.

When We Stand Together - Nickleback - 188 bpm
A wonderful call-to-action type song.

Stand - Britt Nicole - 188 bpm (2x94)
Worshipful song of encouragement.

May you be blessed today and in the days to come.  Thank you so much for being a part of my world!


  1. What perfect song choices. I am so glad you posted them- music really does express what the soul is feeling but can't get out sometimes.

    Thank you for commenting so I could find your blog tonight. I am always blessed to find another runner who loves the Lord.

    1. Thanks Raina! I have been reading your blog for several months now and am always blessed by it!
