As Promised: My Running Song List...

Sunday, January 20, 2013

While I am trying to figure out how to download my HM pictures using Windows8, here is my running song list (as promised to KarenNY and Determined Soul) and for anyone else looking for an upbeat tempo. I run this list in order during Half Marathons. As you can see I love all types of music! I shuffle them the during trainings and fun runs. Near the end you will see some songs repeated - they are the fastest songs that I use and I have timed them for the last miles of the Half Marathon so that I speed up. It has taken me two years to assemble this list and place the songs in the right order. I used my Runkeeper to decide which ones were in and which were out - if my speed slowed down during a song it was out!


The Edge of Glory (LadyGaGa)
Let's Go (feat.Ne-Yo) Calvin Harris *The lyrics are super motivating!!
Poker Face (LadyGaGa)
Moves Like a Jagger (Maroon 5 & Christina Aquillara)
Believe (Cher)
Born To Run (Springsteen)
Runaway (Bon Jovi)
I Gotta Feeling (The E.N.D.)
Stronger (Kelly Clarkson)
Born This Way (Lady GaGa)
Drive By (Train)
Country Girl, shake it for me (Luke Bryan)
I Won't Back Down (Tom Petty)
Summer of '69 (Bryan Adams)
Brown Eyed Girl (Instrumental)
Dynamite (Rokstarr - Taio Cruz)
Firework (Katy Perry)
Hollywood Nights - Live (Bob Seger)
More Than a Feeling (Boston)
Moves Like a Jagger (Maroon 5)
Too Much Time on My Hands (Styx)
Call Me Maybe (Carly Rae Jepsen)
Who Says You Can't Go Home (Bon Jovi)
Born This Way (Lady GaGa)
Legs (ZZ Top)
Runaway (Bon Jovi)
Suds In The Bucket (Sara Evans)
Fastest Girl In Town (Miranda Lambert)
Last Friday Night - TGIF (Katy Perry)
Firework (Katy Perry)
Hollywood Nights - Live (Bob Seger)
Stronger (Kelly Clarkson)
Dancing With Myself (Billy Idol)
The Edge of Glory (Running Workout)

I play these songs at work and in my car. They have become my "audio-vision board". I can "feel" myself running when I hear them, which motivates me to run!

I have a 5k running song list too. It consists of the fastest songs on the list above.

Hope this helps!

    ThAnK YoU !! You clearly have this down to a science. I'm thinking of plugging a few into jogfm too, just to see what it produces. Love this - thanks!
