Friday Fascinations - Favorite Fitness Tunes

Once again, I am linking up with Eat Pray Run DCYou Signed Up for What?! and Mar on the Run for the Friday Five Linkup.  


 

First off, make sure you wish Courtney a Happy Birthday over at Eat Pray Run DC!

I LOVE this week's topic.  My Five Favorite Fitness Tunes!  I thought I would throw my own twist into it.  I am going to give you my current favorite 5 songs with the word "RUN" in the title.  

1.  I Just Wanna Run by Downtown Fiction
I start with one of my favorite running songs ever.  It has the line, "I just wanna run" in it.  What could be bad about that?!  It may not be your genre but try it and see how motivating it is.  



2.  Run It Back Again - Corbin Bleu
Make fun of me all you want.  Yes, this is a Radio Disney exclusive.  Yes, it might be the cast of High School musical or something but it is so catchy and it automatically puts a spring in your step.



3.  Run - FloRida
This one is an obvious dance party cross over into running music.  I like this one more than FloRida's others because it is not played 17 gazillion times on the radio.  But again, it gives you an extra umph in your step!



4.  Run - Sick Puppies
This one is not a dance type song.  It's more of a "You can kick A$$" song.  My favorite line is "Run as fast as you can because the world tries to stop you whenever it can."  Seriously? When everyone tells you that you aren't fast enough, strong enough, dedicated enough - Just Run!



5.  Run - Beach Avenue
This is another non-dance type song.  But again, listening to it and running to it makes you feel pretty bad a$$.  The gist of the song is that you run away from something you thought you wanted before.  Like your dreams and goals are always changing and that's okay.  Cool, right?


And a Bonus, because I am running the Phoenix Marathon (sorry for the album cover picture):


I love the entire Fall Out Boy - Save Rock and Roll album.  It is so good for running.  You can't really pick a bad song!

So, go check out some of the other blogs on the link up and tell me, what are some of your favorite songs to run to?  Do you have any of the above 6 songs in your running play list?

And don't forget to enter this GIVEAWAY I have going right now (ends 10/21).

As always, I wish you Happy Feet,
SD Mom
