Favorite Running Songs

This playlist I use for strength training and speed work. When I'm running a shorter distance or am generally trying for a faster pace these are my go to songs. These songs are also mixed in with all of my other playlists. For long runs I mix slower tempo songs with upbeat songs.

Flower by Moby
Dog Days are Over by Florence + The Machine
Remember the Name by Fort Minor
Let's Go by Trick Daddy
Lose Yourself by Eminem
Applause by Lady GaGa
Best Day of my Life by American Authors
Counting Stars by OneRepublic
Pumpin Blood- NONONO
Timber by Pitbull feat Ke$ha
My Songs Know What You Did in the Dark by Fall Out Boy
Dark Horse by Katy Perry

This playlist is what I use for long runs plus all of the above songs:

Runnin' Down a Dream by Tom Petty
Let it Go by Idina Menzel
Sweater Weather by The Neighbourhood
Gonna Make You Sweat by C+C Music Factory
5 Years Time by Noah and the Whale
You Make My Dreams by Hall and Oates
Shot Reverse Shot by Jack Johnson
Ants Marching by Dave Matthews Band

Question of the day: What is your favorite song to workout/run to?

That's all for now!


  1. I don't really have different songs for different workouts. I usually just put my i-pod on shuffle or listen to the radio!

    1. I also enjoy putting my music on shuffle, it just depends on my mood that day.

  2. My favorite album ever made, as well as my favorite album to work out to, is "Clarity" by Zedd. It is mixed with uptempo and downtempo songs, and most of the tracks have a really great cadence to run to.

  3. I don't usually create different playlists for different workouts, I just set my playlist on shuffle. I love that C&C Music Factory is included on your list. I always start running faster when Van Halen's "Jump" comes on.
