Wednesday Words to Run By

This Wednesday's post focuses on songs, rather than a quote. When I was in cross country in high school, I never ran with music. Though that was back in the 90s, and it was not as feasible to go for a jog with a walkman or discman as it is now with modern technology. When I saw an iPod for the first time while getting my Master's degree I was mesmerized. Yet, they were still pretty expensive, so it was not until about five years after that I finally got one (and only a shuffle at that).

At the gym I love listening to music. I don't have to worry about potential dangers of not hearing traffic, so I am able to let the music pump through my system and push me forward. Right now my iPod is filled will upbeat Spanish music. I know that soon I will need to find some new songs for workouts, but for now these are songs that always get me going when they start playing during a workout. If you are looking to add some new songs into the mix for your runs, you might consider them. I put links to the Amazon pages where you can listen to samples.

What are your favorite workout songs that you suggest I add to my iPod?


  1. Wow, now we know what Sister #3 fantasizes about while working out...hello Latin Lovaaaaa!

  2. Seriously the music is upbeat and keeps me moving.
