The Ultimate  Running  Playlist You Should Listen  to Right Now  ...

If you haven't updated your running playlist, now's the time! There are so many great songs on my "kick butt" playlist, I kind of want to listen to it even when I'm not looking for my next PR. Here's what I'm listening to in 2016.

1 Cold War Kids - First

This is my first-mile song, my middle-of-the-run song, my speed song, my every time I run song.

2 The Ramones - I Wanna Be Sedated

This is the best 2 and a half minutes of your run, right here.

3 Club 8 - into Air

There's no video for this song, but listen! It's ideal for a run.

4 Muse - Madness

This song is just so good for a run; the beat is perfect to push just a little, and it's just motivating!

5 Tove Lo - Habits

Her bad habits will keep you going with your good ones - like running. Oh, the pain, though!

6 Imagine Dragons - Radioactive

When I hear this song on my run, it confirms what I currently feel: I am a total bad-ass.

7 Chvrches - Recover

I'm not sure why this song gets me going faster, but it does.

8 Lights - up We Go

The video is just as much of a kick as the song. Go! Run faster!

9 Cher Lloyd - Want U Back

I'm more than a little embarrassed to admit I love this song. It just makes me laugh, which I often need around mile 10.

10 Icona Pop - I Love It

It's a kick, with just the right beat and the right attitude.

11 Hedley - Anything

I actually prefer the explicit version, but the radio edit's pretty good, too. You can do anything!

12 Mary Lambert - Secrets

I've got plenty of secrets, too... like I hate running. I love running! But I hate running.

13 Ben Folds - You Don't Know Me

This song is 100% about attitude, and yes, it's perfect for your playlist.

14 Cake - the Distance

I mean, this song is an obvious choice, right?

15 The Killers - Mr. Brightside

Save this song for the last quarter-mile and just go for it!

16 One Republic - I Lived

This song made my list because it's good to run to, and because it reminds me of my sister. It gives me the feels, in a good way.

17 ABBA - Take a Chance on Me

Even better than Dancing Queen, I'm serious.Try it, today. You'll be so glad you did!

18 Scott Helman - Bungalow

This song is just plain fun, and it's a little faster than I normally run, so it pushes me a little.

19 Mozella - 4 Leaf Clover

I wish there was a video for this song, so I could picture it as I run! I love this song!

20 James - Laid

Oh my gosh, this song has that same whirlwind feel to it as Mr. Brightside, and it's perfect for a run when you're just not in the mood.

21 Fly - Nicki Minaj

Sometimes all you need is a little Nicki to finish your run.
