Way back when, late ’80s/early ’90s, I lived in the University of Arizona district in Tucson. I walked everywhere. To and from work, I walked. Restaurants, stores, I walked. Even in the midst of the summer heat (one time in 117 degrees F), I walked. And I never went anywhere without my Walkman (for cassette tapes) or my Discman (for CDs). I was always plugged into music and had favorite groups I would listen to over and over again. En Vogue was one of those groups.
For #FlashbackFriday and for #MotivationalMusicMonday over at 50 in 50 Marathon Quest, I present to you En Vogue… Free Your Mind! An inspiring song, especially with all the separation that’s going on in our country now. It’s also great to get up and move to!
And just for extra fun, Hold On… the first hit from their debut album.
Oh, I can’t stop there! Giving Him Something He Can Feel just makes me smile!
And last but not least, Yesterday. You had to own the album to actually know they did it, but this song showcases their true talent.
Saturday morning, James and I are headed to the Lake Sammamish Half-Marathon. He’s running, and I’m sitting out this time… for once I get to be the cheerleader! Yayyy! It’s supposed to snow again (boooo)… so be sure to wish him good luck! He’s going to need to run really really fast just to stay warm! (Please wear your Hoka’s, hunny… you don’t own YakTrax).
Have a fantastical weekend!!
