Help! My Running Playlist is Getting a Little Boring

Besides the fact it is great for my overall health and well-being, the biggest motivation for me to run is a really great playlist. I have a wide variety of songs I love to listen to, some that are more easy-listening to prevent me from running too fast too soon and others that totally pump me up and help push me through on more challenging days. Lately, though, I’ve found  myself getting a little bored with some of the music on my playlist and it’s causing me to hit the “next” button until I find something to wake me up and give my legs the push they need. Recently I added a few new songs in hopes of adding a little variety, but I”m sure there are probably about a thousand others out there that I’m just not thinking of so I’m hoping you’ll help me out? Can we make a deal? If I shamelessly share a sample of the songs currently on my running playlist will you then share some (or even just one) of yours with me? Running Playlist

Okay, there it is for all the world to see. My running playlist along with a not-so-glamorous photo of myself at the local track earlier this summer. Now it’s your turn. Tell me what’s missing from my playlist? Tell me the one (or 5) song that motivates, inspires, pushes you through or just plain makes you wanna sing at the top of your lungs while running down the side of the road. What? You know you do it and I’m totally not judging you for it! Promise.
