    Latest song that gets me pumped,
    Inner Ninja by the classifieds. I listened to it 3 times on my 4 mile run yesterday, I kept going and ran 7 instead.

    Sorry for being so evasive ladies. But one of my coworkers is a mother runner. She has been doing some heavy duty events, more like the triathalon and similar events. I am her secret santa and I am having a lot of fun with it. :-) She likes bluegrass and country. What kind of play list would you recommend for her? Not sure what I will do with it, but looking for some creative ideas. I have several things for her, but looking to celebrate this side of her.

      There is a Bluegrass Cover band called The Gourds. Otherwise, the songs posted on here are good as well as Jane Dear Girls Wildflower and Something About a Truck by Kip Moore.

    How about Flo Rida’s “Whistle”.. That song keeps me running..

  7. Sandy Quinn says:

    Gotta have me some Gangnam Style! And it’s not just because it’s what my kids are listening to, it’s catchy and makes me want to move!

  8. Deb Meixell says:

    Big fan of pink – blow me one last kiss, raise your glass, and Price tag by Jessie J . Other stuff like the Beastie Boys, sabotage, but not very current;)

  9. Jess Turicchi says:

    P!ink’s “Blow Me One Last Kiss” — I love this part:
    I’ve had a sh*t day (NO!)
    Have you had a sh*t day? (NO!),
    we’ve had a sh*t day (NO!)

    A good run can cure any “sh*t” day! :-)

    Love “Hey Mamma” by Mat Learned. Good one to ease into a run, fun beat!

  11. Heidi Matsakis says:

    I love the song One More Night by Maroon 5 right now. I replay it over and over…while running, in the car, my 2 yr old even loves dancing to it.
