What’s on your runner’s playlist? Even if you don’t often run with music (like myself), I’ve still got my power songs to whip out when the going gets tough and motivation lags.
Thunderstruck by AC/DC
I don’t know about you, but when this song comes on, I have the unavoidable urge to just dig deep. It’s got a great tempo, motivating bass, and it just makes me want to move my feet.
Firework by Katy Perry
This is incredibly singable, even when you’re out of breath, and who doesn’t love some girl power! Firework has 100% pushed me over the finish line more than once.
Believer – Imagine Dragons
First things first… This isn’t higher on the list because it’s a little slower, but it surely does get me moving. Really, anything by Imagine Dragons does the trick for me. I have a few of their songs on my run list, and it’s because they push me through.
I’m Good (Blue) Remix – David Guetta + Bebe Rexha
Sometimes you need something light, bubbly, and a little electronic to help tick off the miles. This remix of “I’m Good (Blue)” does just the trick.
Paint It, Black – The Rolling Stones
It’s a classic and it’s perfect. This song has a fantastic cadence and it really gets my legs turning over. I wish it was a little longer, but I don’t mind putting something on repeat until I get it done.

Great mix of tunes! I’m a big Imagine Dragons fan and have a number of their songs on my playlists. Believer is a favorite to put at the start of race to remind me to hold back a bit.
These are excellent! I also have a Katy Perry song on my list and I absolutely LOVE Imagine Dragons. It’s so hard to come up with JUST 5 isn’t it??
Well, I’m obviously out of it because I don’t even know some of these. I’m going to listen to them though and see if I want to add them to my playlist. I usually listen to podcasts when I run, but I’ll definitely put on music when things get really hard- it DEFINITELY helps.

I also shared AC/DC on my post because they’re simply AWESOME! Thunderstruck is such a powerful song, especially with that lengthy guitar intro 😉

I really need to update my playlists… it’s been ages.
