Hey! It’s almost spring.
Which to me means running season.
I am the most unprepared runner I know. I have one pair of shorts that I love (and two that will work but kind of suck), one sports bra that Under Armour discontinued making, and I recently lost my armband so I have to use Scott’s, which is sized for his bicep and certainly not mine.
The one area where I am really on it is my running playlists. The music I listen to while running is super important to me, and it’s an essential part of the experience. I can’t run without music, and I can’t just throw on some random playlist or podcast. In fact, my running playlist is curated even past the songs. The order is important, and I use the ‘More Options’ button in Itunes to shave seconds off the beginning and ends of songs for a more seamless, nonstop transition.
In case you’re like me, I figured I would share the songs that have me beating the pavement this spring. These are all fast, upbeat songs for a fast, thirty minute run. Runs and workouts are the BEST time to listen to terrible music you otherwise would skip on the radio. Cheesy, catchy, dancey, popular five years ago- it all goes!
1-4: Buffy The Vampire Slayer theme song (This gets me pumped since Buffy is my favorite show, and the song is awesome! Having the instrumental song on repeat 4 times pushes me through those first two minutes- no thinking, no stopping.)
5: Move Your Feet- Junior Senior
6: Problem- Ariana Grande
7: Sorry – Justin Beiber
8: Pain- Jimmy Eat World
9: Classic- The Knocks
10: Holdin On- Flume
11: Surf Wax America- Weezer
12: Who Gon Stop Me- Jay-Z/Kanye West
13: I’m Sorry Mama- Eminem
14: Cinema- Benny Benassi
15: If You Didn’t See Me- Dale Earnhart Jr. Jr.
16: Bullet Proof- La Roux
17: Monkey Wrench- Foo Fighters
If you are one of the lucky people who can run to whatever, I envy you. Maybe I’ll get there one day. In the meantime, I have to figure out my armband and sports bra situation!! Running is my favorite way to stay in shape and be healthy and all that jazz, so I will be posting more about it this spring.
Have a great day,
