“The Singing Runner” Sings!
|October 14, 2011||Posted by Katy under Singing, Videos|
Thank you so much for the kind comments on my one year blogging birthday post! Make sure you enter the giveaway if you haven’t already!
Whenever I run a big race, I like to put my blog URL on the back of my shirt.
Shameless promotion? Maybe…but hey, it works!
So, when people see my blog name, the one question I get asked time and time again is “are you going to sing?” or “why aren’t you singing?”
I laugh and say, “Oh, singing while running is a bit difficult. Maybe at the finish line!”
Then I usually get something about false advertising thrown back at me. Eh, guess I deserve it.
Anyway, I have had this blog for a year now and most of you have never heard me sing before. Why?
Well, I love singing but I am very self- conscious and self-critical of my abilities. (This is another reason why I want to get out of this business.) I strive for perfection and anything less than my best is not good enough.
However, I think that enough is enough and I am going to face the music (#punintended) and post a video of me singing.
It is not my best, but it is something. I had been singing for over two hours and was at the end of my practice session for the evening. I flub a few words here and there, mess up tempo, and some notes, but I didn’t feel like recording it for the 5th time, so bear with me.
Also, I apologize for the awful quality (I took it in Photo Booth), the awkward hair flip at the beginning, and three minutes of me staring at a wall.
Here goes nothing…
I hope I didn’t send you running for the hills!
Anyway, I hope you have a fantastic weekend! If you are racing- good luck and be amazing!
