Running to the Extreme

As I’ve looked over my blog, I realized that it’s been a while since had a post dedicated to another song on my running playlist. So, it’s time to put an end to that drought. I’m hoping to just make Wednesdays a  day where I share a new song from my playlist. From here on out, that’s the plan. Okay?

This is another song in my tobyMac block. “Extreme Days” was one of the first singles off his debut solo album, Momentum. Back when this was released, I was an intern for the publicist that handled the release of this album. I still remember the day where we got to see this video for the first time. Back in the early 2000’s, this was an amazing video for the world of Contemporary Christian Music. I still love the Six Million Dollar Man theme. With the exception of the bridge, this song keeps the tempo high enough to run. Every time this song comes up, I think of Toby running and it’s like we’re running buddies. For those that don’t know, Toby is a regular at the Music City Marathon in Nashville every year. So, he’s a runner as well.

Because it’s been a while, I’ve decided to include a second song in this post. This one is one I tend to listen to while on the elliptical machine. It’s another tobyMac song called Boomin’. The reason I don’t tend to run with this song is that there are too many tempo changes. Also, at the end of the track on his album, they have a really slow section where Mandisa sings in her most operatic voice. It sounds great. However, it would make for a harder time to continue running. I don’t know why, but it’s much easier for me to push through slow sections of songs on the elliptical machine than when I’m running.

I hope you enjoyed these songs. For more of the tobyMac songs that I’ve highlighted, click on the “toby mac” tag. Toby is one of my favorite recording artists. He has some really great tracks to run to and others that are just pure awesome. His style is hip-hop fusion. So, if you’re not typically a hip-hop fan, you might find that you like his music. If you’re looking for some new music, I highly recommend checking out tobyMac.

What kinds of music do you look for when creating a playlist? Is it about genre? Or is it about lyrics? What moves you to add a song to your playlist?
