Quite Continental Mix III: Move It

06/08/2012 § 2 Comments

“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.

    In the future, using 8tracks instead of Spotify would mean that people outside the US and Western Europe could listen too… 😦

    • Hi there — yes, I am sorry that not everyone can use Spotify, but since this really is a playlist I use for working out, I didn’t take the time to search through 8tracks like I have for other playlists. Apologies!
