Last week we talked about some memorable every day ordinary training runs. I mentioned that one of my favorites was doing a training run while we were finishing up the #RunChatHunt. What made that run special was that while we were out running and searching for Christmas items, we were listening to Christmas music on our ipods.
Each year our local radio station starts playing non-stop Christmas music from Black Friday till Christmas. Last year, it started earlier than Black Friday, and this year, it started on November 16th! I like Christmas music but just out of respect for the Thanksgiving holiday, I think the music needs to wait till after Thanksgiving.

In any case, we will be participating in the #RunChatHunt again this season and we will no doubt be listening to Christmas music while we do it. That's not the only time I want to listen to Christmas music though. I thought it might be fun to create an "up beat" Christmas music playlist for some of my runs on the trail.
Here are some upbeat Christmas favorites!
1. All I want for Christmas is you - Mariah Carey
2. Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays - N'sync
3. Santa Clause is Coming to Town - Bruce Springsteen
4. Rockin Around the Christmas Tree -Brenda Lee ( This song always reminds me of the movie Home Alone, as does the song Run Run Rudolph. Both are sure to be on the running playlist).
5. Trans-Siberian Orchestra's Christmas Eve
Although not really meant to be a Christmas song, I'll be adding Seasons of Love (525,600 minutes) from the Musical Rent. It just seems so fitting this time of year.
Random Trivia Fact: Seeing Rent on Broadway was one of the first dates Scott took me on.
And although not all that up beat, I'll be adding Happy Christmas (War is Over) by John Lennon. That is my absolute favorite Christmas song.
If you want to participate in the #RunChatHunt sponsored by RunChat, it started on Nov 26 and ends Jan 1. For more information go to TheRunChat.com
