RunnerSince I’ve started running, I’ve found that at certain points (that occur fairly frequently), I just want to stop and collapse in a heap on the floor. The one thing that keeps me going when I feel like giving up is music. The right running song can get me going faster and keep me from stopping. The right song can make me feel like a total badass, even if I am the slowest girl on the treadmill. I know not all runners like running with music, but for me – it’s a necessity. Do you run with music?


I wanted to share with you a few of my all-time favorite running songs, and I hope you’ll share some of your favorites as well. I am always looking to grow my playlist! Leave me your recommendations in the comments.


Also – I’ve lost TEN POUNDS since I became a Mamavation Sista! WOO FREAKING HOO!
