Run for Your Life


I've been reminiscent lately. And seriously, running is the best place for thinking about memories. So it only makes sense to have my half-marathon mix right now as a soundtrack of life.

These songs all have a place in my life and bring up memories. The lyrics aren't necessarily a reflection of my life. It's simply about the feeling I get when I listen to this music.
