When I first started training, I was like, “Oh yeah! I GOT this!” and was super excited and energetic.
But now that I’m halfway through with training, I’m starting to wonder why I signed up for this thing in the first place. Waking up at 6:00 a.m. on Saturdays to run long distances and then dealing with the constant exhaustion (and inability to stop eating…seriously, marathon training makes you hungry ALL. THE. TIME.)
But, I know that it’ll be all worth it in the end when I get that medal and that green shirt that says “Finisher” on the back! So I’ve got to keep going. And nothing helps get me pumped up more than my running playlist! If you’re starting on a goal to run this year, be it a marathon, half marathon, 5K, whatevs, I thought I’d share the tunes that psyche me up during the hours of grueling runs.
Upbeat and peppy, this song actually makes me smile when I run.
Since having a baby, I jiggle a lot more when I run now. Which, thanks to Beyonce and the girls, I’m not ashamed about!
This totally makes me feel like I could karate chop someone without missing a beat on my run.
I’ve got the eye of the Tiger, a fighter, dancin’ through the fire.
Again, because reasons.
The rolling beat on this keeps me going!
OMG. Watch this video and try not to cry. And also try not to let it inspire you to keep going even though you want to give up.
Do you have any songs that amp you up for a run?
