I am fortunate to live in an area with beautiful running paths. During most of my runs I am happy to enjoy the natural ambiance of the trail: the wind rustling the leaves of the trees, the bird calls, and the gurgling of the nearby Sacramento River.

marathon I will have less than 5 miles to go.
Once in awhile though, I'd rather not listen to the sound of my own feet hitting the pavement, and I need a little music to motivate me. On those days, I am extremely grateful for the invention of the ipod.
I can put my headphones and know that a few happy and funky tunes will energize me. Just for fun, I collected a few songs from my running playlist here to share with you:
(I found YouTube links for some, and tried to link to an MP3 player for others. I hope this works!)
Iwoya - Angelique Kidjo
Son of a Preacher Man from the Pulp Fiction soundtrack
Beautiful Thing - Conya Doss
Change - Joy Denalane
Dr. Feel Good - Travie McCoy
What about you? Do you have music that gets you in your groove when you need a little boost? I would love to hear suggestions from you to expand my playlist.
