Whether you run late at night, early in the morning, or on your lunch break, getting motivated is not the easiest thing to do. What's harder? Staying motivated. If you get halfway through your jog and decided to turn around prematurely, you could use a pump up! This playlist is specifically designed to start off with fun and upbeat music to get you started, and then progresses into more intense and motivating songs to keep you going.
"Best Day of My Life" by American Authors: Start your run with a fun and refreshing song! This tune is super positive so you can start off feeling good about your workout.
"Pompeii" by Bastille: Another fun and fast paced song, this will keep you going on a positive note.
"Take a Chance On Me" by ABBA: Whether you grew up listening to ABBA, heard A-Teens remakes or are an avid fan of the MAMA MIA Musical, this song will put a smile on your face as you run to the beat.
"Pocket of Sunshine" by Natasha Bedingfield: Stay positive! This is a happy song with a quick beat to keep your feet moving, even if you're facing a steep hill!
"Wasted" by Tiesto: This song is a little ridiculous but you can't argue that it isn't fun. It's got a great beat and bright sounds that won't let you slow down!
"Die Young" by Ke$ha: Keep your run strong while Ke$ha convinces you to live in the moment, though keeping up a healthy lifestyle will prevent dying young, sorry Ke$ha.
"Do My Thang" by Miley Cyrus: We all know Miley's gone a little crazy lately, but this song has a great rhythm to run to and can keep you motivated as you start to tire.
"Heads Will Roll" by Yeah Yeah Yeahs: Even the Glee version of this is BA. This song will pump you up and help you to get on your game face.

"Not Afraid" by Eminem: Don't back down from the challenge! This song has a strong beat that will keep your legs pumping.
"Dead & Gone" by T.I. ft. Justine Timberlake: Another song that has a strong feel to it, this song will remind you that the, 'old you' is dead and gone! You can do it!
