Running Music

(side note, it's really hard to pick one picture of JT!)

Confession: I am a top 40 music lover.

Can't help it. It was the way I was raised. I mostly love top 40 pop because I can sing along to the songs and some make me dance. I realize that they get over played on the radio but I'm ok with that.
Sometimes I hear songs that I just really like because they have a good beat. Today for instance, my windows were down in my car, had the music going, enjoying the beautiful day and "Carry Out" by Timbaland featuring Justin Timberlake came on the radio. I LOVE IT! Makes me want to relive my college days going to a bar and dancing!! It make me want to jam. haha. I know its going to get played till it dies, kind of like Beyonce's "Single Ladies", but these are songs that I think I will always enjoy.

But here's my point of the post today. On saturday, as you know, I have the 10K to run. My usual running partner for races is not going to run because she has her son and can't leave him while we run for an hour. So, I am going to be by myself. I usually don't listen to music while I run, and I am still debating if I am going to or not (I dont want to carry anything). But today when I heard the JT/Timbaland song, I thought to myself, "you know, I could really run to this"! haha.

So I am looking for some good, upbeat (non- death metal) running songs. I'd like to make a play list. And it can be new, old, whatever. Even to the point where a few years ago, I found that Tom Petty's "Running Down A Dream" was actually the pace I ran.. so it's sure to be on there.

What are your favorite work out song?!?! Help!
