Runner - DanielleI think we can all agree that music (and a good playlist) is a crucial part of our lives.  It can put you in any mood that you desire.  When you need a pick me up, if you want to cry, when you need to get work done, preparing for a competition, chilling out at home, getting ready for a night on the town, etc.  I think we as human beings all have different tastes in musical genres per se, but are exactly the same in LOVING music.  For me personally, it is what starts my day and can make all the difference in the world.  I mean, I know you can relate!  You can’t deny how great your workouts are when you update your playlist.  You can’t deny belting out your new favorite song in the car and then putting it on repeat.  You can’t deny putting on those slow mellow jams when you’re feeling nostalgic.  And I mean come on, who doesn’t love finding old burnt CD’s around the house or in the car and popping them in.  I can literally associate music with any part of my life!  I can’t even count the amount of times I have popped in a burnt CD from high school and just smiled because of all the funny/great memories I had.  You can associate your music with different people too.  Now this can be a good thing or a bad thing.  For me, there is nothing better than hearing a song that reminds me of a good friend or funny moment.  Yet, I hate when a song comes on and reminds me of a bad memory……but hey…..that’s what the next button is for!

Needless to say, music is so important to me and I would assume all of you out there as well!  Today I want to share my gym playlist with you!  These are the tunes that get me motivated to keep working hard, and hit my workouts harder!  I get asked all the time what I listen to at the gym.  Now, it might come as a surprise to some of you what I listen to.  I can tell you that my music is literally the most random stuff ever.  By random I mean that it just ranges in genre.  I have my songs that I will never delete off my workout playlist because they are so classic and good!  At the same time though, I am constantly updating my playlist to today’s newest music!

The only favor I ask of all of you out there reading is to add your favorite song to this note!  I am always curious to know what everyone else’s favorite pump up song is.  So here it is.  I’m not holding anything back here—-this is the list to its entirety!  ENJOY!
