running to the beat

November 22, 2011

Most of the time, I run solo. While I would much rather always have a running buddy, it’s not always the way it turns out — unless you count Charlie, but in that case, I have to watch our because he has tripped me one too many times.

When I do run solo, I need music for my long runs. I rarely run with music when I run 3-4 miles, but anything longer than that and I need a beat to run to!


My current playlist looks like this:

Move — Mercy Me

The One That Got Away — Katy Perry

Moves Like Jagger — Maroon 5

Last Friday Night (Glee Version) — Glee Cast

Good Feeling — Flo Rida

Mr. Saxobeat — Alexandra Stan

We Found Love — Rihanna

Sexy and I Know It — LMFAO

Mean — Taylor Swift

Stereo Hearts — Gym Class Heroes

Super Bass — Nicki Minaj

Jesus Saves — Jeremy Camp

Born This Way — Lady GaGa

Mine — Taylor Swift

Dirty Dancer – Enrique Iglesias, Usher

I Lift My Hands — Chris Tomlin

Baby — Justin Beiber

Break Your Heart — Taio Cruz

Better Than Revenge — Taylor Swift

Raise Your Glass — Pink

Party Rock Anthem — LMFAO

Fairly eclectic, wouldn’t you agree? I have always liked a lot of different music — and it’s a shame I can’t run well to Josh Groban or Michael Buble! I have a fairly fool proof system when it comes to downloading music. I go to the iTunes store, look at the Top 100 singles, and download the ones I like. Genius, I tell you. Or, You could use a cool running song websites like Running Music Mix or Jog Tunes.

Question: What is on your running playlist right now? How do you choose your songs?
