I find that the music I run to does not reflect the music I listen to in my day-to-day — at all. For instance, that Shakira song from the most recent World Cup, Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)? It’s front and center on my favorite running playlist. It’s just a great song to run to, but there is really no other time you’ll find me listening to her music. Nothing wrong with it, just personal preference. The rest of the music runs gamut from rap and dated 90s stuff to embarrassing current and not-so-current hits. (Eye of the Tiger? Check. Justin Timberlake Sexy Back? Check. What? I said some of it was embarrassing. Whatever it takes to keep me moving out there!)
But I’m in need something new to put a little more pep in my step. So I’m turning to you, dear readers. What are your absolute favorite songs to listen to while running?
