My Running // Workout Playlist + Tips to Choosing Songs For Yours

If you're anything like me, working out and music go hand in hand; working out simply does not come without it's buddy. So today I threw together a quick workout playlist that I jam to on my runs and how you can find your perfect list.

I have to start this list with the best song and a little explanation. Radioactive by Imagine Dragons. Maybe cliche, but holy holy moly, this song. It's practically my motivation to be awesome. If I hear this song come on the radio, it's like a magnet that draws me up off the couch and forces me to do stuff.

And I think that a song like this is necessary for a good run and/or workout.

Maybe for you it's not Radioactive, but try to find the song that has a motivational effect on you. We are surrounded by music everyday so pay attention to the radio or through YouTube videos or even on TV shows!
Download Shazam. This app is perfect for when you hear that song that you have to download, but have never heard it before and don't know what the F*&^ it is. Shazam saves my life... but really just hours of googling. Okay, do you have that song in mind? Awesome. You're well on your way (what TV show has that phrase at the end of it.... anyone?) to building your playlist! You can plug the song into your Pandora and jam to similar music!

Here are some more songs that I have on my iTunes:

Cher Lloyd - Want U Back
Demi Lovato - Heart Attack
