My Running Mix

I was asked about my running mix from a reader after my Half Marathon and I wanted to let everyone know what pumps me up on my runs. I love running to music, even though recently, I have been running technology free. Music pumps me up. It totally kept me going on miles 6+ during the half. I was rocking out to Britney Spears like nobody’s business! It just takes my mind off the mileage and gets me pumping along to the beat. I am a big believer in that if you listed to faster paced songs, you run faster. That’s why I fill my ‘Run’ playlist with some booty-shaking tunes:

  1. Got Money – Lil Wayne & T-Pain
  2. Feel Good Inc. – Gorillaz
  3. Hold Me Now – Polyphonic Spree
  4. Sugar, We’re Going Down – Fall Out Boy
  5. The Glamorous Life – Paul Oakenfold
  6. Lose My Breath – Destiny’s Child
  7. Breathe – Fabolous
  8. Workout Plan – Kanye West
  9. Hips Don’t Lie – Shakira
  10. Gimme More – Britney Spears
  11. Piece of Me – Britney Spears
  12. Circus – Britney Spears
  13. Kill the Lights – Britney Spears
  14. Shattered Glass – Britney Spears
  15. If You Seek Amy – Britney Spears
  16. Toxic- Britney Spears
  17. Stronger – Britney Spears
  18. I Got That Boom Boom – Britney Spears
  19. Damaged – Danity Kane
  20. Hollaback Girl – Gwen Stefani
  21. Rich Girl – Gwen Stefani
  22. Life’s What You Make It – Miley Cyrus
  23. Poker Face – Lady Gaga
  24. Just Dance – Lady Gaga
  25. Girl’s Night Out – Miley Cyrus
  26. Pop- N*Sync
  27. Push Up – Freestylers
  28. Freakum Dress – Beyonce
  29. Feedback – Janet Jackson
  30. Pull Over That Ass Too Fat – Trick Daddy
  31. Everytime We Touch – Cascada
  32. Boys of Summer – Ataris
  33. Call On Me – Eric Prydz

I also enjoy the GirlTalk mixes. They are perfect for my running music ADD, where I get bored of certain songs after a minute or two and need to switch it up a bit! Also, as previously mentioned, I heart Jay Blahnik. I love the Nike training runs by Serena Williams, All American Rejects and the Human Race specific ones. I try to do one or two of those a week, since they are speed training workouts. Love those!

What are your favorite running/workout songs?
