Quite Continental Mix III: Move It

“I just want to play ball.”
London 2012 has definitely been the year of the woman. I am over the moon at how the stories of Franklin, Soni, May-Treanor/Walsh Jennings, Rhode, the Williams sisters, Richards-Ross, the 38-0 record of the US women’s basketball team, and, my personal favorite, Gabby “USA Gold” Douglas, have dominated the headlines. And while I may be a bit old to start my Olympic career, I’m really hopeful that the little girls watching this summer — like my nine year-old niece who really loves gymnastics — are inspired to push for Olympic gold.
For those of us who are a little older, but have nonetheless been similarly inspired to improve upon our own personal bests, I’ve put together a mix of songs guaranteed to power you through a few extra miles. Or maybe your commute to work. While some prefer running to books on tape (books on mp3…?) I’ve always been a bit dance-heavy in my workout soundtracks. Throw in some Beyoncé, a few rock anthems and a bit of 80s, and I’m good to go. I hope you enjoy it. It is a Spotify playlist that can be accessed via the player embedded below, or this link.
So get on out there and play ball.
