"In a while we'll smile, march on another mile..."

Having a kick-ass playlist while running is one of many tricks to ensure you have an awesome run. Pick a variety of tunes you enjoy listening to within different genres. Remixes of popular upbeat songs help to get the blood flowing and promote more energy throughout your body. If you own an IPhone (and like to run with it) you can tune into radio stations or podcast to mix up your music selection. Let loose while running and enjoy your tunes while singing and dancing. To sing along will not only get you pumped and in the moment, but will also help reassure your breathing patterns are consistent and good. The dancing part is only for your amusement. :)

I, personally, like to run to jam bands such as DMB, O.A.R., Goo Goo Dolls, and Matchbox 20. However, I can't forget the infamous rap songs that make me believe I have a little hood in me, or just prove I'm a crazy cajun. :) So, without further ado here is a sample of my current running playlist:

1. All of the Above- Maino ft T-Pain
2. Ants Marching- DMB
3. Beat It- Michael Jackson
4. Bombs over Bagdad- Outkast
5. Campus- Vampire Weekend
6. Cupid's Shuffle- Cupid
7. Crush (Live)- DMB
8. Damn Girl- Justin Timberlake ft. Will-I-AM
9. Two Step Remix- DJ Unk ft T-Pain and Jim Jones
10. Get Me Bodied- Beyonce ft Voltio
11. I Don't Feel Like Dancing- Scissor Sisters
12. I Know You Want Me- Pitbull
13. Let It Rock- Kevin Rudolf ft. Lil Wayne
14. Pump It- Black Eyed Peas
15. Proudest Monkey (Live)- DMB
16. Stuntin' Is A Habit- David Banner
17. Tambourine- Eve
18. What Them Girls Like- Ludacris ft Chris Brown and Sean Garrett
19. Shake It- Metro Station
20. Calabria (Remix)- Enur ft. Natasja
