There are days when I don’t feel like working out and I push myself and get the workout done. Today  the music pulled me through.

I did not want to work out; in part I blame the flu shot I received early this morning. But I had already made my playlist. This would have been my father’s birthday (he died in 1974). His taught high school band and then became a school administrator. But he kept his hands in music, directing among other groups a community band. For a couple of years I played baritone horn in the band. This playlist consists of songs the band played. Except as otherwise noted, all the songs are by Leonard Bernstein and the  New York Philharmonic – one of my dad’s favorite groups.

Gym at the Shire.
Treadmill. Walking. Core work. Stretching.
Scotland the Brave – The Isle of Cumbrae Pipe Band (we played this one with a pipe band in Grove City)
The Thunderer
Washington Post
Hands Across the Sea
Under the Double Eagle
The  British Grenadiers
The National Emblem
