Happy Five Years!

in All Posts

It’s our five year anniversary.  Neither one of us can believe it!  Five years?! Already? We definitely had to count on our fingers to make sure it was REALLY five years and not four.  Our wedding feels like it was just yesterday…




It’s been five really great years.  It’s been easy to have a happy marriage because I am wed to an incredible and caring person.  And now life is even better because of Henry!


Did you know that Healthy Tipping Point was originally named See Bride Run?  I started blogging about six months before the wedding because I wanted to document everything (side note: thank goodness I got married before Pinterest… I was already drowning in DIY projects!).  I came up with the blog name HTP while on our honeymoon to Napa Valley and San Francisco, where we drank wine, went to wonderful spas, drove up and down the California coast, and ate awesome Chinese food.


In honor of our anniversary and the old See Bride Run days…


Here are 20 epic running songs since 2009, four for every year that we’ve been married.




Lady Gaga – Bad Romance

Jay Z – Run This Town

Cascada – Evacuate the Dancefloor

Black Eyed Peas – I Gotta Feeling




Adam Lambert – Whataya Want From Me

Far East Movement – Like a G6

Eminem – Not Afraid

Enrique Iglesias – I Like It




Swedish House Mafia – Every Teardrop is a Waterfall (Remix)

Rihanna – Cheers

Ke$ha – Blow

Katy Perry – E.T.




PSY – Gangnam Style

Linkin Park – Burn It Down

Ellie Goulding – Lights

David Guetta – Titanium




Macklemore – Thrift Shop

Imagine Dragons – Radioactive

Bruno Mars – Gorilla

Fall Out Boy – My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark



An eclectic mix, I know. But I like a variety of music.  As song as it has a great beat, I’m down!


What is your favorite running song from the last five years? 


PS – The winner of the Camelbak giveaway is Ali.  Congrats Smile

    Happy anniversary! Why does it seem like the songs from 2009 were from last year?? Man time flies!

  • Lauren January 3, 2014, 4:05 pm

    Wow- I can’t believe i’ts been five years!! Happy Anniversary! I never comment, but I have been a reader since the See Bride Run days:) Time flies.

    happy anniversary to you. I am in my 40s and am amazed at how young everybody looks compared to my old body!!

    Some favorite songs: Radio Nowhere by Springsteen. Also from this past year: Get Lucky, by Daft Punk and Dance Apocalyptic by Janelle Monae. (that last one is a great running song I’d guess, if I actually ran)

  • Sarahf January 3, 2014, 5:50 pm

    Congratulations! Happy Anniversary! I am so out of touch with music, the songs got slowly less recognisable to me as I went down the list. I say it’s because I live in Japan, but really it’s my age showing!

  • Aerevyn Harteis January 3, 2014, 5:56 pm

    Happy anniversary!

  • Michelle @ A Healthy Mrs January 3, 2014, 7:04 pm

    Hi Caitlin! I think this is my first comment too! Been reading about a year I think. I share some of your music/workout songs. I’ve only been running for about 18 months (did Couch to 5K last year and now doing Bridge to 10K).

    Here are some others I use/like:

    The One – Mary J. Blige
    Money Grabber – Fitz & the Tantrums
    Hysteria – Muse
    Empire State of Mind – Jay Z
    Jesus Walks – Kanye West
    Remember the Name – Fort Minor

    Happy anniversary you two! I really loved “Amazing” by Kanye West for a while but right now I’m in love with “Turbulence” by Steve Aoki and Lil Jon. It’s so not me but it gets me going!

    Happy anniversary! Your pictures are beautiful.

  • Heather @ Health, Happiness, and Hope January 4, 2014, 4:10 am

    Happy Anniversary! I’m sure I’ve said this before, but I LOVE your wedding dress… the detailing on the bodice is gorgeous.

    You pretty much picked the most epic running songs ever. Just saying 😉 I would maybe add…
    Lady Gaga “Just Dance”
    Alex Clare “Too Close”
    Black Eyed Peas “I Gotta Feeling”
    LMFAO “Sexy and I Know It”
    Britney Spears “Till the World Ends”
    So many good ones to choose from the past 5 years!!

  • Maggie @ Just a Couple More Pages January 4, 2014, 12:18 pm

    Congrats on 5 happy years! When I was looking at the song list I was like “2013? she already picked 5 from this year?!” and then I realized it’s 2014 and I cried inside.

    Anywho, I love Nicki Minaj’s Fly I actually just added it workout playlist after ignoring it for long time.

  • Elizabeth @ Positive Change January 4, 2014, 12:46 pm

    Happy 5 years! I love those songs and I can’t believe how old some of those songs are! 🙂

  • Veronica January 4, 2014, 9:28 pm

    Absolute FAVORITE running song – “Strip Me” by Natasha Bedingfield. It always seems to come on my randomized playlist EXACTLY when I need it during my workouts.
    As a mom, wife, and student, I wear a lot of hats. Exercise “strips me” down to what I really am, especially when I have to dig deep and ask myself “do I have what it takes?”

    The beat is great, strong, steady and empowering. The lyrics are perfect for those moments during a workout when you ask, “What the HELL am I doing this for???”
    And she’s British. I adore her. *smile*

  • Brenda @ Bren There January 5, 2014, 8:39 am

    Eek! Happy Anniversary you guys! You’re probably my favorite cyber couple I’ve never met before haha!

  • Evan Thomas January 5, 2014, 10:01 pm

    Happy belated anniversary!

  • Becca January 6, 2014, 11:57 am

    Happy Anniversary! I almost died when I read that Run This Town and Bad Romance are from 2009. They are absolutely the newest songs I know. Time for an update! Thanks – and best wishes for the next 5 years and beyond.

  • Kimberly January 6, 2014, 1:55 pm

    Happy 5-Year Anniversary! I just got married last Sunday and it was nice to read that marriage can be easy with the right person. 🙂 I also wanted to let you know I think you provide a good example of marriage through your blog!

  • Jolene (www.everydayfoodie.ca) January 6, 2014, 10:20 pm

    Ooooh, I remember See Bride Run!! I’ve been reading since the beginning 🙂

    • Caitlin January 7, 2014, 7:29 am
