As you read this I am probably on the treadmill (or outside) getting in my long run. I’m switching things up a bit, and since I have today off work while we are spending the weekend at the beach I figured I’d take advantage so I can help Wes tomorrow during his long run.

The past several months have been a whirl wind. I feel like I’m trying to be just a normal runner, but let’s face it I’m not going to be that “normal” for a while. It’s okay though. I’ll take it!

One thing that hasn’t changed however is my love for good music to run to. I kid you not I had not updated my iPod from February-July. I was running with the same music and some days it just got really old. I don’t run with music early in the morning outside, but on the treadmill on the weekends music is a must.


Can’t Stop the Feeling – Justin Timberlake

Blue Tacoma – Russel Dickerson

Louder – Yelawolf ft. Inkmonstarr

American Country Love Song – Jake Owen

Unsteady – X Ambassadors

Man Up – Younger Brother

Sway – Dan + Shay

Just Like Fire – PINK

Make You Mine – High Valley


I know we all have different music tastes, but these songs have helped put a little excitement back in some of my tougher run. There is nothing better than a good song to help motivate you!

What is one of your favorite running songs right now?
