Running Playlist – Top 10 Favorites



Boys are low maintenance.


All they really need is a ball to bounce around (thank goodness we have an indoor court in our gym) and good food.


The kids asked me to make s’mores again so of course I did.


As for me, I am just so happy to feel normal again this week.

It’s funny — sometimes we don’t even realize how unnormal we feel (unnormal should be a word!) until we feel like ourselves again, especially our runningselves (did I just make up another word?)

I am back to running and battling that treadmill, breaking my sweat without feeling hormone sick, stretching into silly sweaty selfies and listening to my favorite songs each morning.


During most of my runs, I usually flip between a bunch of Pandora radio stations.

I try really hard to preserve my running playlist to keep the songs fresh and fun but lately I find it motivates me big time if I switch over to my guaranteed favorite songs, especially when I am stuck running on the treadmill.

As I have come to learn, most of my favorite running songs can’t get old on me. There is just something about this select group of songs that gives me energy and makes me happy to sing along.

I put together my top 10 favorites songs from my running playlist just in case you were looking for some running motivation and want to update your own music library.

I promise that listening to these songs will inspire you to move faster and finish the miles you set out to complete, even if you are stuck on the treadmill!

    I need these songs right now. i have 3×3 miles on the treadmill (14 miles total), and I am so scared. I have not decided if I will allow myself music or not….I really need to focus…..but if I do….I am downloading these songs! Thank youuuuu! I will need them the next few days! This was a bad week for 80-85 miles 🙁

      Don’t be scared – remember positive thinking! I can’t imagine running that long without music, especially on the treadmill. Set your pace and then listen to some good tunes to pass the time!

    I only listen to music when I run on the treadmill (not outside) so feel like I get a chance to listen to songs that I haven’t heard in a while. I get sick of songs quickly and tend to skip them quite a bit. I have had Titanium on my playlist for awhile and I also think Centuries would be a good running song but I haven’t downloaded it. I’ll also like Katy Perry’s Roar for getting me pumped up during a tough run.

    I just read the title and now I have Baby Don’t Lie stuck in my head… thanks for that one 😛 And my workout playlist has been completely random lately. I haven’t added any new songs to it for a while, so I’ve mainly just been listening to Spotify in hopes that something good will come on. That way I don’t run the risk of playing a song to death… which I have a habit of doing.

    My husband always laughs at me, but I love working out to country music. I actually ran a half marathons w/ only country on my playlist.
