Get It Right, Get It Right, Get It Tight...

So, I am certainly not a runner. In fact, until a couple of months ago, I am ashamed to admit, I hadn't worked out on a regular basis since high school soccer. But unfortunately my 30's are creeping up on me and my metabolism is creeping down. I needed some serious motivation so I signed myself up for the Redhook Brewery 5k to force me to start getting my derriere in shape. To most, a 5k sounds like cake. But let me remind you, I have probably run a max. of 8 min straight since 2002. This was going to be a challenge, but with my lack of enthusiasm towards exercising, I needed to go to extreme measures. I enlisted the help of some good tunes, and went from running zero to 3.1 miles in about a week and a half. I definitely surprised myself! It's amazing what a little dedication can do. The race is this Sunday, and I have not tested my endurance outside yet (nothing like leaving things until the last minute!), but I am hoping with a playlist like this, I can hit shuffle, get in the zone, and achieve my goal - cross the finish line under 30 minutes. ;)

What are your FAVORITE workout songs???  I am always looking for a new one to add to the mix!


  1. I love this list! I might have to steal some of these; my old playlist is getting, well, OLD! Some of my fav. standbys are Florence and the Machine - Dog days are over, David Guetta's Little bad girl and Hey Mama by Matt Kearny. Not gonna lie, I add Danity Kane to the mix a lot too! hehe

    Good luck on the 5k!

  2. Love this! I'm adding my playlist to my blog soon, but wanted to look for a new one since I'm just getting started, and need some motivation for my workouts!
