A huge part of my running enjoyment comes from having great, motivating music. I am also always on the lookout for new workout and running songs to add into my mix.

Here are some of my recent favorite songs. Please post yours below. I am due to add some new ones into my workout mix!

Sober – Pink

Vacation – The Go-Go’s (great running beat)

S & M – Rihanna

Raise Your Glass – Pink (yet again, I love running to Pink)

Metro – Berlin (blast from the past)

Crash – The Primitives (ditto)

In the Ayer – Flo Rida

The Edge of Glory – Lady Gaga

Anything, Anything – Dramarama (8th grade flashback)

Hazy Shade of Winter – The Bangles

Walkin’ on Sunshine – Katrina (impossible to listen to this and not be in a good mood)

The Real Slim Shady – Eminem (warning: dirty!)

Sexy and I Know It – LMFAO ( I crack up every time I hear it…”I workout!”)

    Your mix sounds great! I will have to add some of those to my run mix.
    Party Rock Anthem by LMFAO and Dancing with Myself by Billy Idol both add a spring to my step when I run!

    LOVE new workout songs! One of my faves is “Barbara Streisand” by Duck Sauce, it’s got a great beat & it’s hilarious!

    Just wanted to thank you for the list of motivating music. I am preparing my playlist for my half marathon on Saturday and I remembered that you compiled a list. I just added five of your songs to my playlist and I already had some of the other ones. 🙂 I will add some of my favorites in the comments when I have a minute. Thank you again!
