My post last week started a really wonderful conversation about running playlists. After getting some truly excellent suggestions for songs to add to my tired old rotation (Walking on Sunshine by Katrina & the Waves and Miami by Will Smith will warm you up faster than a killer hill workout), I thought it was only fair to share the playlist that’s rocking my running world right now. I’m still hunting for new songs to freshen up my February running mix. Got more ideas? Please, please, please share ’em below!
You Can Do it – Ice Cube
Unwritten – Natasha Beddingfield
The Watcher – Dr. Dre
Til I Collapse – Eminem
What’s the Difference – Dr. Dre
Kick in the Door – The Notorious B.I.G.
Two Step, Live at Red Rocks – Dave Matthews Band
Halleluja – Jeff Buckley
How It Ends – DeVotchka
Fight the Power – Public Enemy
Fugeela – The Fugees
City of Blinding Lights – U2
Run On – Moby
Survivor – Destiny’s Child
Scenario – Tribe Called Quest
M-E-T-H-O-D Man – Wu Tang Clan
Moving to New York – The Wombats
Also check out the Run, Fat Boy, Run soundtrack, which includes a song by the Fratellis that’s perfect to start a race to. Stay tuned for a post about why this movie pumped me up more than Prefontaine ever could.
