June Running Playlist

Happy early Fourth of July! Although it’s supposed to be rainy, there’s nothing better than spending the 4th of July with friends and family. I’m looking forward to grilling out with my family and a party with friends later in the evening.

I’ve been trying to cut back on running long distances, as my right knee has been giving me issues in terms of pain while running. I’m hoping to avoid a trip to the doctor, so I’m upping my strength training.

As promised, here’s my top five June running jams

1. Till I Collapse- Eminem

An oldie but a goodie, this song is great for the tail end of a run. 

2. Bang Bang- will.i.am 

From the fabulous Great Gatsby soundtrack (which I honestly think was better than the movie itself), this song has a fun beat and a good pace for running

3. Runaway Baby- Bruno Mars

Every song by Bruno Mars is catchy and run-able.

4. I Don’t Feel Like Dancing- Scissor Sisters

The only issue with adding this song to your playlist is that you may end up dancing instead of running

5. Kickstart My Heart- Motley Crue

Every good running playlist needs an 80’s jam
