Music Monday: Roll Me Away – Bob Seger

“Just then I saw a young hawk flyin' and my soul began to rise, and pretty soon, my heart was singin'” – Bob Seger from Roll Me Away

One of my favorite running songs, “Roll Me Away” is not just about riding a motorcycle. It is a song about hope. It paints the gorgeous American Countryside and it makes me feel free. Whenever this song comes on my iPhone I cannot stop running until it is over


  1. That's a great song! I've never done the Christie Clinic marathon. I've been entertaining the Illinois Marathon weekend but the dates do not work this year.
