Songs that were Made for Runners and a FREEBIE FOR YOU

Happy Friday folks!  We have been just loving this weather lately. We have had a bit of rain but the temps have been in the 70's and it has been awesome running weather. We have lots of miles scheduled for this weekend ( Meranda 17 and Lacey 15) so we thought we would start updating some songs on our playlist. It's a good thing this week's theme is about music!


I think having a variety of music on our playlists is key to not feeling bored on a run. I can tell that I actually get a bit excited when I hear certain songs come on.   Here is a list of some favorite songs both old and new. If you aren't sure if you know the song or not, we have included a link so you can take a listen ( all of these are the clean version) Enjoy!


1. Songs that  will keep you "Running".
1. We Run the Night- Pitbull/Havan Brown

3. Songs that inspire you.

And now we have something special to share with you.  You all know that we are running Rock N Roll Las Vegas next month, and it was recently announced that Chromeo was going to be one of the acts performing. As part of the Rock'n blog team, we were given a free download of his song "Come Alive".  We are not big fans of Chromeo but we would be happy to pass along this free download so you can enjoy it on your playlist. You can get your free download HERE. (Courtesy of Rock n Roll and Competitor)

Have you found some of your favorites on our list? Are there some songs you hadn't heard of?

  19. I love the way you divided it up. There ARE some songs that keep you running and then some songs that make you feel like a champ FOR running!

    ReplyDelete
  20. I love how you divided these up too! So many of those songs have been my running songs over the years - especially "Dynamite" and "22" - "we run the night" as well! all really good pump-up songs to keep you going when you really need it :) Lately I've been running to "All the Way" by Timeflies and "Shut Up and Dance" by Walk the Moon. Check them out!
