I love running long distance - it gives me time to think, time to reflect, time to soak in my surroundings, time to appreciate the fresh air, and time to listen to my music.
A good playlist can determine the speed, length and mood of my run.
Here are my favorite songs to listen to when running or working out, and the ones I’ll be rocking out to this Sunday when I am running the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon. Enjoy!
The Distance - Cake
The Fighter (feat. Ryan Tedder) - Gym Class Heroes
Is Anybody Out There? - K’NAAN, Nelly Furtado
Forever - Drake, Lil Wayne, Kayne West, Eminem
Body Work - Morgan Page, Tegan & Sara
Hit Me With Your Best Shot - Pat Benatar
Don’t Stop - Foster the People
Lose Yourself - Eminem
Comeback Kid - Sleigh Bells
Fall Behind Me - The Donnas
Carried Away - Passion Pit
Take Me Out - Franz Ferinand
Dog Days Are Over - Florence + The Machine
I have not listened to anything else but Lana Del Rey for over a week now. This album is fantastic!
