The Finish Line Song

I don’t see how anyone can exercise without music… I have several playlists devoted to running music.  Most of the time I listen to music without lyrics, just a steady beat to keep me going, but today I turned on my worship music and for the first time EVER, really truly enjoyed a run.

I’m planning to compile a list of Christian music that I run to, in case anyone else is interested, but for now I wanted to share a song that has become really special to me recently.  I mentioned before that at the end of the 10k I had originally planned to cross the finish line with Carman’s song, Faith Enough, blaring in my ears.  When I started to cry while listening to it, however, I had to move on to the next song (it was NOT an appropriate time to start bawling in the street… I hadn’t actually crossed the finish line yet!) Recently, I’ve been thinking a lot about the song I was listening to when I crossed the line… it’s a song called Dare You to Move, by Switchfoot, and it sums up so much of what this journey has been for me.  The lyrics that are especially meaningful to me are these:

Welcome to the fallout
Welcome to Resistance
The tension is here
The tension is here
Between who you are and who you could be
Between how it is and how it should be
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened before

Here is the song, in full:
