Tik Tok: Boston Marathon Style

This song came on during my last GMP run last night...since it's been one of my training anthems for some reason this cycle, I was inspired to change some of the lyrics to make it more fitting...I'm actually pretty impressed with what I came up with haha. Enjoy!  And yes, I hope to wake up marathon morning feeling like P. Diddy... :)

Wake up in the morning feeling like P. Diddy
Put my Mizunos on, out the door, I'm gonna hit this city (Let's go)
Before I leave, brush my teeth, Gatorade in my pack
Cause when I leave Boston I've got to run the whole way back

I'm talkin' tech socks on my toes, toes
Skimpy spandex clothes, clothes
Athlete Alert texts on my friends phones, phones

School buses, listening to my favorite tracks
Eating power bars for snacks
The lines for the Porta Potties are staaaacked...

Don't stop, make it pop
Gonna blow my sneakers up this time
I'm gonna fight, til I see that finish line
Tik tok, on the clock, but the race don't stop, no

Oh oh oh oh....oh oh oh oh

Those BC students, they've got plenty of beer
Got my chip in my shoelaces, all the runners are here
And the corrals are lining up, cause we hear they got swagger
Don't wanna hit the curb with that Newton Hills stagger

I'm talkin' everybody goin' fast, fast
Hopin' that they can last, last
Where's the next girl I can pass, pass

Now, now we're goin' twenty six point two
I think I need another Gu....
Think I need another Gu-Gu
Think I need another....

Don't stop, make it pop
Gonna blow my sneakers up this time
I'm gonna fight, til I see that finish line
Tik tok, on the clock, but the race don't stop no

Oh oh oh oh....oh oh oh oh

Boston, you build me up
You break me down
My heart it pounds, yeah you've got me

Up Heartbreak Hill
You've got me now
Got that screaming crowd sound
Yeah you've got me

Ohh, you build me up
You break me down
My heart it pounds, yeah you've got me

We're at the top, put your hands up
Put your hands up...

Now the race don't start til mile 21...

Don't stop, make it pop
Gonna blow my sneakers up this time
I'm gonna fight, til I see that finish line
Tik tok, on the clock but the race don't stop no

Oh oh oh oh....oh oh oh oh
