Anyway, it’s Thursday and I’m thankful for the wisdom of rappers. I’ve been in need of some positive, motivating thoughts lately and I can’t help but turn to the likes of Jay-Z, T.I., and yes even Plies. So while most of these are related to beeches, hoes, and gettin’ that paper, they could be very relatable to life and running. (This is probably a stretch, but what the hell, I think it’s hilarious, especially if you don’t know the song. Something about reading rap lyrics…)
Here in no particular order is why I am thankful for the wisdom of rappers:
1. I am f*ck!n awesome. -Plies
2. Ladies is pimps too, go and brush your shoulders off. -Jay-Z
3. Never mind what haters say, ignore ’em til they fade away. -T.I.
4. The good life, let’s go on a living spree, sh!t they say the best things in life are free. – Kanye West
5. Push it real good. -Salt N Pepa
6. I’m all that and then some. -Tribe Called Quest
7. Ready or not, here I come. -The Fugees
8. It’s not an illusion, we runnin’ the streets. -Ludacris
9. Runnin’ runnin’ and runnin’ runnin. -Black Eyed Peas
10. I’m gonna knock you out, Mama said knock you out. -LL Cool J
Feel free to add your own faves in the comments.

I'm totally going to have "Push it real good" stuck in my head now for the rest of the day which means it will inevitably pop up in my head during the race! Awesome! LMAO!

This one, by Ice-T is good too:
"You try to keep us
Running and running faster
But I ain't runnin' from ya
I'm runnin' at ya
and my posse's thick
About a mile strong"
Don't just stand there, Bust a Move.
