Super Bass, Stereo Hearts and a Party Rock Anthem

The countdown is on. Four days until the St. George Marathon. That means it's time to update the iPod so there's more than two hours of songs on there. A sub-2 hour marathon might be inevitable, but it won't be set by me. Shocking, I know.

I figure if I can't run, I'll get ready to run. I shot an email to my doctor this morning to see if there is anything else I can do to help speed things along with my hip since the only times it hurts now is when I first get up in the morning and the Celebrex has worn off or when I try to run. Until I get his response, I will distract myself with music.

Last week I got an email of the top ten workout songs for September from Chris at and was pretty excited. Perfect timing for updating my iPod. And I'm letting you in on the list too:

Pitbull, Ne-Yo, Afrojack & Nayer - Give Me Everything (Sidney Samson Remix) - 129 BPM

Nicki Minaj - Super Bass - 128 BPM

Switchfoot - Dark Horses - 83 BPM

Gym Class Heroes & Adam Levine - Stereo Hearts - 90 BPM

Lady GaGa - Edge Of Glory (Bare Noize Remix) - 140 BPM

Pitbull & Marc Anthony - Rain Over Me - 128 BPM

Nadia Ali, Alex Kenji & Starkillers - Pressure (Alesso Radio Edit) - 129 BPM

T.I. & B.o.B. - We Don't Get Down Like Y'all - 92 BPM

LMFAO, GoonRock & Lauren Bennett - Party Rock Anthem (Russ Chimes Remix) - 129 BPM

Alexandra Stan - Mr. Saxobeat - 129 BPM

You can listen to clips of the songs at You can also subscribe to the web site, and get (for free) weekly updates and the monthly top 10 list with each song's BPM (beats per minute) is listed. There are also links to buy them on and iTunes.

Before you wander over to Run Hundred though, tell me what YOUR favorite running song is right now.


  1. I am currently working on my playlist for St. George too! Hope you have a great run and your hip is pain free for the race!

  2. wooo hoo! You'll get that sub-2! So funny you posted this because I just posted last night that I'm obsessed with stereo hearts (and I'm hoping it'll be one of the songs to get me a sub-2 also for my half on sunday)

  3. I have never heard of this website! thank you!!

    mine is Price Tag right now...
    I love it!

  4. My favorite right now is the number one on the list! Thanks for sharing I am going to check out that website now!

  5. Love the playlist! I can always use new songs to keep me going. Thanks for sharing!!

  6. Love the playlist! I can always use new songs to keep me going. Thanks for sharing!!

  7. Did you know an anagram for Run Hundred is Duh, Runnerd?

  8. Going to listen your playlist, thanks for sharing. Now my favorite song is "Shot in the dark" by Within Temptation (gothic rock).
    Good luck on the marathon.

  9. Thanks for sharing the music selections. I haven't heard any of those. I'm afraid that shows that I am old. My favorite song that gets me going lately is Surf Wax America by Weezer.
    Good luck this weekend! Give me a text to let me know how it goes!

  10. cool! i need to get new music for my ipod pronto. every time i run lately its like slow stuff is always coming on. ummm weird because it is my "running" ipod and i thought i only put fast songs on it. thinking of you friend and hoping that hip cooperates ASAP! i almost threw up when i saw that "4" and now it has changed to 3...eeeeek.

    my favorite song for a long time will probably be "give me everything" ...i listened to music for maybe about half of UVM and that is the ONLY song i remember actually hearing. haha. it always reminds me of mile 24 :)

  11. OH I am so excited you shared this. I have been thinking about listenning to music during the marathon but my playlist is so lame and I am so so sick of it!!

    My all time favorite running song is probably black eyed peas "Tonights Gonna be a good night". I have no idea why but I always think that after I finish the race I can celebrate and have a great night. ha ha

  12. I have the Party Rock Anthem on my playlist now and it's a great running song!

  13. "Blackout" by Breathe's awesome... some of the lyrics "I'm only getting started..." "This won't stop til I say so"... very motivational for me!

  14. Good luck Saturday.

    You're proven yourself as a solid runner this year and you've earned a great race.

    So give it your all.
    But don't puke on your medal.

  15. Awesome post. It is really help to us. Its give us lots of interest and pleasure. Its opportunity are so fantastic and working style so speedy.. best handheld gps

  16. As I would like to think, the connector is certainly justified regardless of the cost.

Carpet Burn On My Butt (and a giveaway)

After two lame, pathetic, lackluster weeks of running, I woke up excited to run yesterday. And today, I wore my running clothes all morning in anticipation of my nap time run today. Even in spite of sore glutes and tired quads from getting in some P90X Core Synergistics last night, I couldn't wait to get moving on Millie. I am a planner. Today I had a plan to get my run in while my girls slept, and my day was organized accordingly. I am also a creature of habit. The first thing I do when I roll out of bed every single day is make my bed and my girls' beds. If I do something else first, it throws off the entire morning. I am a creature of habit when it comes to my running routines as well. There are a few things that differ depending on whether I am running on Millie or outside, whether my girls are asleep or not, and whether or not they are joining me in the jogger. Yet, no matter when, where, how far or with whom I run, some things are always the same. My hair goes into a pony

I wasn't sure going in...

Yep, I'm checking in. Why? Because I did something completely out of my comfort zone that I wanted to share with you. Last week I went to a place near Salt Lake called Dexa Body, where I got a DEXA Scan. For those unfamiliar with what that is, I asked Google to help us out:  "Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry  ( DXA , previously  DEXA ) is a means of measuring  bone mineral density  (BMD). Two  X-ray  beams, with different  energy levels , are aimed at the patient's  bones . When  soft tissue   absorption is subtracted out, the  bone mineral density  (BMD) can be determined from the absorption of each beam by bone. Dual-energy X-ray absorptiometry is the most widely used and most thoroughly studied bone density measurement technology." Since that is pretty medical sounding, here's my take. A DEXA Scan is a tool to measure your total body composition. It specifically breaks down the regional composition of your lean and fat tissue. It gives a fat distribution

Social Media: Some good, a lot of bad, and way too much ugly

There are a lot of good things that come from social media. We can connect with people we have lost touch with. We can unite as a group (runners!!) with a comment interest. We can promote a good cause. Sadly though, what social media does best is makes us feel bad about ourselves and makes us feel negatively towards others. This isn't just my opinion, although I can unquestionably support the truth behind this based on my own experience. I have spent way too much time feeling bad about myself as a result of comparing myself to others based on their Instagram or Facebook versions of themselves. And there are several people I have started feeling negatively about or have become completely annoyed with because of their IG and FB posts. It isn't just me though. There are actual studies that can back me up on the negative impact social media can have. I have read dozens of articles reviewing many different studies that show the overwhelmingly negative (vs. positive) effec
