Running is made for music. It has its own tempo, its own rhythm, its own pace. You, the runner, can speed up or slow down.

The best running songs
As a runner, I often turn to music to keep me entertained and motivated during my training runs and races. I love discovering new running songs even if "new" only means "new to me" , listening to them, and sharing them with others via my blog posts and Facebook page. I recently asked people to share their favorite running songs , then created a list of titles, new and old, that keep us on our feet and on pace. List in hand, I asked members of SparkPeople. Find out which song took the tittle of best running song, whether your favorite made the list, and how you can download a brand new minute running mix of the top 12 songs as voted on by runners like you! Watch it on YouTube. Did any of your favorites make the list?
Running definitely isn't easy. Whether you're a beginner or a pro, it's a continuously challenging workout because you're competing with your own time and endurance—and, I mean, that's the point! As the saying goes, no pain, no gain. But a killer playlist is sure to help you power through every single mile. You need those high-energy songs to motivate you at the start, hardcore bass-heavy bops to keep your body in a steady rhythm, "angry" songs for the excruciatingly difficult moments, and your all time faves as a reward during your cool down.
