"Try" by Pink. The beat and the words... "Gotta get up and try". Keeps me moving when I want to stop. =)

Lately one of my favorites is "Such Great Heights" by The Postal Service. Its a good, regular beat, and has a different sound...I get a little lost in it for a while.

The Ramones "I want to be sedated" is my finishing song on my runs. It gets me through the bonk and actually speeds up my tempo for my finishing kick.

Losing My Edge by LCD Sound System is the perfect song to start a run. 7:53 of pure running bliss. It starts simply, with medium-paced techno beats, and builds throughout adding crunching guitars by the end. I love that it starts slow but ends with a bang, just like my long runs.

So many songs to choose from - but this past year I was training and completing 5 half marathons with an eye on trying (again) to get into the NYC marathon for 2014. During those long runs I was truly inspired every time I heard Alicia Keys "Empire State of Mind". So I will go with this one!

Springsteen's "Born in the USA" - without a doubt. Great cadence and great power song.
