LNRB’s Unequivocally Perfect Run Jams

I find that most runners go through phases with music.  Most of us start out absolutely needing our tunes, then after we run for a while, we find we’re not as dependent and it becomes a great way to stay calm or get pumped up.  I use music, after almost a decade of running, to pump me up before races or tough training runs.  And here’s a secret:

My fav run jams are all about running — or they talk about running.

Here are my top pump up run jams!

  • Run It!  Chris Brown featuring Juelz Santana — dude, I’m sorry and I know that CB hits people like all the time including recently but I will forever love his first single.  And I neeeed it to nail those 800s.  Sorry not sorry.
  • Run The World (Girls)  Beyonce — Uh.  I dare you to watch this video and not bust out a tempo run/question your life choices.
  • Run This Town JayZ featuring Rhianna and Kanye West — This is just one of those songs that makes me want to run the streets of DC endlessly.
  • We Run the Night Havana Brown and Pitbull — anything that Pitbull does makes me happy I have ears.  His songs also make me want to hit the treadmill.
  • We Run This (Stick It Cut) Missy Elliot — Stick It is a cinematic triumph, Missy Elliot is amazing and we, do it fact run this Scroll to 1:10!
  • Love Runs Out One Republic — this has been my summer go to running jam.  I love me some One Republic.  Also this video is ridiculous.  You’re welcome.
  •  Run Around Blues Traveler — You’re welcome.
  • Ready to Run The Dixie Chicks — this one really helps calm my nerves.  I’ve always loved the Dixie Chicks, they’re the best.

What are you go to running songs {and YES I know i omitted Bruce Springsteen — we’ll all survive!} to get you pumped up?
