10 Songs I Love to Run To

I have learned to love running. I get an amazing rush of positive energy when I'm done that lasts for hours. It makes me super productive in other areas of my work and homelife. Of course it burns huge calories and is helping me lose some extra pounds too. Competing against myself in terms of getting faster and shaving time off my runs is pretty cool too.

A good playlist is really essential to me when I'm running alone and not with my training group. I have shared some of my playlists in the past but I have a new one that is totally keeping me pumped up during my runs. So here it is!

1. Mat Kearney - Hey Mama
I reviewed Mat's album Young Love and I still say it should win a Grammy.

2. Matchbox 20 - Let's See How Far We've Come
Found this older tune in my library and it's the perfect tempo and lyrics for my runs.

3. Jimmy Eat World - Always Be
Again, perfect tempo. Love everything this band does.

4. All-American Rejects - Move Along
Another older song with great lyrics for running.

5. We Were Promised Jetpacks - Quiet Little Voices
Super fast so I feel the urge to step it up and push a little.

6. MuteMath - Spotlight
Have you seen this video? If you haven't, go watch it. These guys are so talented.

7. Green River Ordinance - Rise Up
Yes I know I had this song on at least two previous lists. It's THAT GOOD.

8. Arcade Fire - Ready to Start
My lists can't be all pop music, gotta through some of that hipster stuff in too.

9. Foster the People - Helena Beat
Everyone uses Pumped Up Kicks at races, but I vastly prefer this song.

10. Good Charlotte - The Anthem
Old school pop-punk. Reminds me of high school.

Bonus! LFMAO - Party Rock Anthem! Because seriously, this song is crazy infectious and makes me feel like dancing every time I hear it.
