Songs I’m Running To Now

That would be IF I were running right now.

Due to the muscle spasm in my back last week, and the razor blades that have been attacking my poor throat for the past five days, and then the asthma attack that kept me up all night last night, I haven’t run in a week.  And I’m getting ready to go out of town for a few days, so needless to say, running has taken a back seat to, well, life.

So perhaps the title of this post should be Songs I’ve Been Running To Lately.

Or, Songs I Was Running To Before Life Kicked My Trash.

At any rate, I need change to keep me interested, and a few weeks ago I started losing my motivation to run.  Then I realized that I just needed new tunes.  I love it when there’s a simple solution!  Life could use more of those, I’m just sayin’.

So here is my latest running playlist, for those of you who may be looking for some inspiration:

Some are on there purely for the beat, so for the words, I apologize.

Some are on there because the words make me want to push myself when I feel like I’m about to die.  (Unwritten is a good one for that.)

And some are on there simply they’re so ridiculous I couldn’t resist.  Battleship Chains, anyone?  It just cracks me up.  Sometimes it’s all I can do not to sing along.  I would, but I wouldn’t want to frighten the cows.

What are some of your favorite songs to run (or exercise) to?
