fountains of wayne. who knew.

17 September 2007

Monday September 17
7:45-8:20 run/walk
Little Things—Colbie Callet (however I can’t handle sappy girl ballads right now. Not today.)
Someone to Love—Fountains of Wayne (I know. Who knew? This song is God proving he still has a sense of humor.)
All of your love
Billy Liar—new favorite Decemberists song
I need a lover who won’t drive me crazy
Rebellion (lies) I never get tired of Arcade fire
Baby Boy—Beyonce. Another song that I would be embarrassed if everyone could hear my ipod played aloud
Sittin up in my room—Brandy. funny, junior high me was a HUGE sap. I think I’d be impatient with her if we were pals.
Soul Meets Body—Death Cab

So at the start of my run today, had that same “I don’t feel like running” feeling, and noticed that when you first get started, it feels awkward and unnatural. You’re aware of every single movement and it feels a little forced, but once you get over those first few minutes of strain, it starts to feel natural and not forced and the best, most comfortable release in the world.

The running-as-metaphor-for-life just continues. So starting to run is kinda like starting a relationship. You think, this doesn’t feel quite right. I’m not cut out for this. You’re hyperaware of every little movement, and overanalyze every uncomfortable moment. But if you just shut up and get over that…usually it works out. And you discover you’re better at it than you thought.

And you look better in your jeans. Possibly true for both sides of the metaphor.

When it’s late, and it’s hot
and a date with the late show’s all that you’ve got,
don’t give out, don’t give up,
one of these nights you might find someone to love

Oh fountains of wayne, you are such clever lyricists…
