As taper week comes to an end and I begin to prep for Iron Girl Clearwater, I am also in the works to download some new tunes for my two and a half hour venture. I thought I would take a few minutes to review some of my “go-to” jams that are a must for my playlist.
1. Run the World (Girls) by Beyonce. 127 BPM
Nothing more empowering than some tunes by Queen B herself.
2. The Phoenix by Fall Out Boy. 138 BPM
Truthfully, I love anything by Fall Out Boy. This song has a really good beat that builds momentum with the chorus.
3. I just Wanna Run by The Downtown Fiction. 128 BPM
Just as the title states, I just want to run.
4. Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars. 115 BPM
It’s a catchy song and its tempo is slower than most contemporary pop songs with regard to beats per minute.
5. Outside by Calvin Harris featuring Ellie Goulding 128 BPM
I just love this collaboration with Harris and Goulding. Again, this song starts off with a soft melody that sets the stage for a dramatic beat.
What type of music or artist get’s you in your running zone?

We are a huge Fall Out Boy fans!! Their songs are great for running too also! We’re taking my daughter to see them in July. Her first concert! 🙂
How exciting! I hope she has a great first concert. 🙂 I’ve never been disappointed with any of their shows.
I hope it’s a good concert too!
Great list of catchy fun songs!
