Playlist Wednesday!

First Playlist Wednesday, yesssss!  I'm really excited to share what I've been listening too as I train for my 5th half marathon! I'm looking to change some things up (I have a mix of anywhere from the 80s, 90s, and current Top 40) for this race too so give me any suggestions yall have too!

Soo, here is this week's edition of my top 5 running songs of the week:

  • Sweet Nothing (feat. Florence Welch)-Calvin Harris
    • I.LOVE.THIS. That Calvin Harris, he knows what he's doing! I love the upbeat tempo of this song and the lyrics are so catchy I find myself literally singing out loud while I run!
  • Forever- Drake, Kanye West, Lil Wayne & Eminem
    • OK, so I know this song is forever old (um.. 4yrs?) but I just love the rap beat and always keeps me going when I want to stop.  I especially love Eminem's rap at the end, I always rap it out loud while I run and sprint during that part of the song!
    • Here's a fun fact= this was my first favorite Drake song that I first heard on that silly Sprite commercial back in 2010 hahahha
  • Bulletproof- La Roux
    • I love this song.  I originally added it to my playlist back in 2010 after a nasty breakup and the beat and lyrics were perfect for my emotions at the time and putting that all into my running.  Sometimes when certain songs have connotations with memories I'd like to forget, I usually never voluntarily listen to it ever again (i.e. jason mraz& colbie callait's lucky or colbie callait's bubbly) but this one, I love it for running!
  • I Wanna Dance With Somebody- Whitney Houston
    • I think this is my favorite song for running, hands down.  It always gets me going at the beginning of my runs and even if I'm in the middle of a boring treadmill run, it's perfect.  This was the very first song I added to my very first running playlist back in 2009.
  • Don't Stop Believing- Journey
    • Does this one really need an explanation? This is the best for all those double digit long runs (10+ miles) and for all my race playlists!
OK so I clearly enjoy a wide range of musical stylings for my running playlist! Do you like any of these songs? Which are your favorites for running or working out?
