This one goes out to my aunt Annette, who taught me to love The Boss from a tender age.
I love Bruce Springsteen. I mean, I love Bruce Springsteen. One of best things that happened in my adult life was that he came out with another album and Gaga had Clarence Clemons cameo on my favorite song of hers just before he died. If I had a life-bucket list, seeing Bruce (and U2) would be on it. I used to use my Grandma’s taper candles to beat out the drum solo at the end of Born in the USA. So, yeah, I love me some Bruce.
Since I’m getting back into running, I thought it fitting to feature one of my favorite songs of all time – my theme song – for running. I have a shirt that says it as part of my ‘fake it ’till you make it’ campaign for becoming a runner: baby we were born to run!
