Music Monday: Motivational (yet cheesy) running music

Motivational but cheesy running music

This past weekend we asked our followers for motivational running music suggestions, and we encouraged them to include some cheesy options into the mix. You know, the songs you secretly love and blast full volume before or during a run but might not necessarily admit to liking.

Those songs.

Your suggestions — both the cheesy and the serious — have inspired us to start an occasional Monday Music series. We'll feature everything from pop and rock to metal and country but today we're going to start with the semi-embarrassing yet totally awesome songs that make you run harder or faster.

You can download — as well as contribute — to the playlist on RDIO.
