Summer 2013 Running Playlist

It’s officially time for a new summer running playlist! (I’m admittedly fickle when it comes to my music…so I’m always looking for some updated motivation.) Here are my latest favorites that have been keeping me company while hitting the pavement:

Brave by Sara Bareilles: It’s a great starter song for a run. A little slow, but awesomely strong lyrics.

I’m Alive by Michael Franti: This might be the PERFECT summer running song!

Move It Like You Stole It by ZZ Ward: I could only find this live perfomance on YouTube, but it’s
                                                                   almost better than the album version. Just bad ass.

Wings by Little Mix: Not even gonna lie, I first heard this song on Radio Disney while listening with my
                                    kids. (I already hate myself for admitting that.) But I have no shame…I like it
                                    anyway. If you close your eyes and just listen, it’s acceptable.

Runaway Baby by Bruno Mars: Love this one, although I have to say…EVERY time I hear the sirens
                                                            at the end of the song I’m convinced it’s really the cops behind
                                                            me. I’ll get used to it soon enough.


Restless Heart by Matt Hires: This is my FAVE running song of the moment!


So spill it…what are YOUR favorite running songs right now? 


  1. I like Restless Heart! Great playlist! Thanks for linking up at Ladies Only Blog Share. ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Great playlist! I’m on the lookout for fun new workout songs. Thanks for the suggestions. Stopping from #LOBS.


  3. I only know the Michael Franti song sadly but I will check out the rest. True story – Michael is a good friend of a friend’s and we got backstage passes and got to talk to him when he was last in town and he was just as awesome and kind in person as you’d expect.

  4. I’m generally huffing and puffing too loud to hear the music but I’ll check out these for when I’m fitter ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. these are great!! i’d add Dance Apocalyptic by Janelle Monae. SO MUCH FUN. ๐Ÿ™‚
