1 Tongue Tied – Grouplove

Tongue Tied – Grouplove On iTunes: itunes.apple.com
Words cannot accurately describe how much I love this song. It’s absolutely one of my very favorite songs to run to, and if you’ve seen the video, you know how appropriate it is to run to it! Just watch that you don’t sing out loud while you’re running, and I dare you to try to listen without smiling!

2 Pure Morning – Placebo

Pure Morning – Placebo On iTunes: itunes.apple.com
Check out the very first song on this album, and you’ll be ready to run before you can even lace up your trainers. It’s got a beat you can’t sit still for, and lyrics that are obtuse and somehow sexy.

In the realm of fitness and sports, women are claiming their terrain with grace and tenacity. Be inspired by these phenomenal women runners redefining endurance and strength on Instagram. From marathon champions to everyday heroes, they are writing new narratives and inspiring millions globally.

3 Animal – Neon Trees

Animal – Neon Trees On iTunes: itunes.apple.com
Every time I hear this song, I can't help but sing along, especially to the chorus. It's so much fun, and it's such a great song to run to!

4 Dancing with Myself – Billy Idol

Dancing with Myself – Billy Idol On iTunes: itunes.apple.com
Okay, I KNOW. But trust me, this blast from the past is an amazingly good song to run or to work out to. Even if you’re not a fan of '80s music, give this song a chance. You might just find yourself doing the Billy Idol sneer thing with your lips.

5 Hello – Martin Solveig & Dragonette

Hello – Martin Solveig & Dragonette On iTunes: itunes.apple.com
I’m almost embarrassed to admit how much fun this song is to run to! It’s upbeat, a dance song more than an exercise song, but it works! It makes me want to wear a running shirt that says “hello” on the front… and “bye-bye” on the back!

6 I Wanna Be Sedated – the Ramones

I Wanna Be Sedated – the Ramones On iTunes: itunes.apple.com
I first started listening to this song at the gym, but it translates quite well from “last 3 minutes on the elliptical” to “sprinting out the last block” while you’re running outside. You won’t wanna be sedated; you’ll wanna finish with your best time yet!

7 Intro – the XX

Intro – the XX On iTunes: itunes.apple.com
Way back (a few years ago, anyway), there was a TV commercial featuring the gorgeous Apolo Ohno skating in a loop, with this song in the background. Since then, it’s been one of my favorite running songs. I mean, if it’s good enough for Apolo Ohno, it’s good enough for us, right?

8 Mr. Brightside – the Killers

Mr. Brightside – the Killers On iTunes: itunes.apple.com
Wow, I love this song! It’s a whirlwind, from start to finish, and it’s guaranteed to get you across the finish line, no matter how much you want to stop. If you haven’t seen it yet, check out the video, so when you’re running, you can picture the dreamy front man squaring off against uber-creepster Eric Roberts… and imagine wearing that gorgeous show-girl costume!

9 Pumpkin Soup – Kate Nash

Pumpkin Soup – Kate Nash On iTunes: itunes.apple.com
If you’ve ever wondered if your running buddy would make a good boyfriend, then this is the running song for you! It captures that unsure, edgy, antsy feeling perfectly, and the rhythm and beat will keep your feet moving while you debate moving out of the friend zone.

10 Madness – Muse

Madness – Muse On iTunes: itunes.apple.com
This has been one of my favorite running songs for more than a year now; I play it every time I head out to get my run started at the right pace. It’s a good song no matter what you’re doing, played as loud as you can without hurting your ears or breaking quiet laws.

Now that you’ve loaded all of these songs into your iPod, what are you waiting for? Let’s get going! Which of these songs gets you moving the most? Or is there another song you like to run to I didn’t mention? Please share!

#5 is TOOOOOATALLY true! I'm not a runner but that song (in its remixed form) is def on my workout playlist and it makes me want to kick butt at the gym! And I do, every time~

Love this

bounce- calvin harris and kelis

Invincible by Ok Go is quite the gooder

I've never heard of any of these songs before

I personally think Disney songs are best to run too, I know weird but inspirational. I love listening to the motivational lyrics and the steady tempo. :)

Another song that I enjoy running to is I hate myself for loving you- Joanne Jett Idk, I guess I just really like the tempo xD

Mr. Brightside is one of my favorites too. Also some good ones are Bullet by Steel Train, Are You Gonna Be My Girl by Jet, and M79 by Vampire Weekend. :)
