Music is such a wonderful motivator for me when it comes to running. No matter how tired I get during a run, a great, fast paced beat can bring me back up to speed and feeling ready to go.
Now that I am training for a half marathon, runs are getting longer, and I started thinking of some of my favorite “Pump You Up” songs that bring my energy up no matter what mile I am on and help me to finish strong.
I came up with an awesome list of 9 songs, from some oldies but goodies to some dance beats of today. This high-energy mix of songs will keep your intensity up if played all together for a shorter run for sure. And if you mix these songs into your running playlist, you can be sure they will give you a nice strong boost of energy to get you going again during longer runs.
So here is a list of some of my favorite running songs to boost your energy when you really need it and their YouTube links so you can check them out!

- Pain – Jimmy Eat World
- Let It Rock – Kevin Rudolf
