tunes to help you beat the winter workout blues

so many of my runs for this training cycle have been on the treadmill that i've not downloaded any new music in a while [when i run on the treadmill i watch quality television, gossip girl, ahem].

i'm doing two races this month, the frosty foot [recap here] and the hot chocolate 10k so i was very excited to reward myself with some new music. now i should explain now, when i say new music, it just means new to me and my ipod... i'm not saying it just came out, so don't leave me a comment telling me how lame and dated my playlists are.

johnny cash & tom petty - i won't back down
mumford & sons [the whole babel album is great] - i will wait, whispers in the dark, lover of the light
robyn - dancing on my own
chris tomlin - whom shall i fear
florida georgia line - cruise
one republic - feel again
ke$ha [go ahead and download the whole warrior album] - c'mon, die young, warrior, wherever you are - scream and shout
the lumineers - ho hey, stubborn love
calvin harris feat. florence welch - sweet nothing
kelly clarkson - catch my breath
ellie goulding - anything could happen
flo rida - i cry
anna kendrick - cups
darius rucker - wagon wheel
nicki minaj - va va voom


  1. Love johnny cash and mumford and sons!

  2. Hey, so glad you found some new tunes to inspire you and keep you company. I don't run with music but I watched movies when I used to do treadmill runs. Toy Story was my favorite!

  3. I have serious winter running blues! Great list!

  4. Gossip Girl is quality tv fyi :)

  5. Thanks for sharing. i always love seeing what songs other people are loving. I usually discover a few new ones in the process. I will have to go check out Keisha.

  6. Great songs! I just love that One Republic song. We have alot of the same tunes!

  7. I'm going to have to steal this list as I HATE winter...and it's blues :) thanks!
