"I’ve been using this playlist for all of the speedwork I’m doing down in my basement (sometimes with my 5-year-old cheering me through my last mile repeat; more often, she’s using my distracted time to color on the walls)."
Shake It Out: Florence + the Machine (“It’s hard to dance with a devil on your back”—it’s also hard to run with one, so I shake it off during my warm up)
Judas: Lady Gaga.
Just Like a Pill: Pink (she says run as fast as you can, so I do)
The Edge of Glory: Lady Gaga.
Born this Way: Lady Gaga.
Grenade: Bruno Mars.
S&M: Rihanna (hopefully my daughter will not grow up emotionally scarred because she hears me screaming “s s s m m m” at 6 in the morning)
Palladio: Escala (beautiful women playing powerful classical music wearing outrageous clothes—kind of like, say, running in a skirt and sequins)
Raise Your Glass: Pink
Run the World (Girls): Beyonce
