One of my favorite parts about running is that I get to listen to MY music. Not my husbands music or my 3 year olds music, just MY music. I run to lots of random music. I like to add music that reminds me of happy memories. I like music that pumps me up. I also like some mellow music that just makes me think.
When you are doing marathon training and running 3-5 hours your playlist needs a lot of songs.
Here is some of my playlist:
“Thrift Shop” by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis- This is one of the newer songs I’ve added and enjoy the beat that goes with it.
Pitch Perfect Soundtrack- There are a lot of fun songs on here. I personally love “Bellas Finals” and “Trebles Finals”. “Riff Off” is also fun.
Pearl Jam- A little bit of a throwback, but for some reason I love running to “Daughter” and “Jeremy”
“Born In the USA” by Bruce Springsteen
“Stronger” by Kanye West. I also have the song “The New Workout Plan” by Kanye West on my playlist.
“We No Speak Americano”- Yolanda Be Cool & DCUP
“Release” by Timbaland featuring Justin Timberlake
“What A Feeling” from the Flashdance Soundtrack
“Billie Jean” by Michael Jackson
“Freedom” by George Michael
Some more mellow songs:
“Someone Like You” by Adele
“When I Was Your Man” by Bruno Mars
“Matroshka” by Dredg- If you haven’t heard this song I highly recommend looking it up.
“Every Little Thing She Does Is Magic” by Sting from Symphonicities- I LOVE this version with the orchestra
“Just Give Me A Reason” by Pink featuring Nate Ruess
“Dog Days Are Over” by Florence and the Machine
“Just the Way You Are” by Bruno Mars
“When You Sy Nothing At All” by Ronan Keating
“You Keep Me Hangin’ On” by The Supremes
“Reflections” also by The Supremes
“Happy Together” by The Turtles
“Hold On, I’m Coming” by Sam & Dave
This is just a small amount of my playlist, but is pretty random stuff when all put together. I love it. One of my favorite things about running is the soundtrack that I set for that day.
What are some of your favorite songs to run to? I’m always looking for new tunes 🙂
