a new running playlist

ok, so I've always run off and on, mostly outside (I HATE treadmills). When living in Edinburgh, I got really into it and ended up running my own half-marathon right before we moved. I tried to keep it up while living in Austin, but the heat was pretty much unbearable.

A hamstring strain has kept me from it since being back in Indiana, as well as simply not having enough hours in the day to get everything I want to do done!

IN SHORT: Excuses, excuses, excuses. Since the weather is so beautiful, I've decided to get back out there. Good music is a must when running, so here are five songs getting me motivated right now:

"Shake It Out" -- Florence + the Machine


"Best of My Love" -- The Emotions


"We Are Young" -- Fun. feat. Janelle Monae


"Under the Blacklight" -- Rilo Kiley


"Take a Minute" -- K'naan
