I don’t know about all of you, but I love to listen to music while I am running. It helps me to run farther and faster (and keeps me from listening to my gasping breaths). That being said, nothing kills my pace like a slow, lame song. So began the creation of wonderfully upbeat running playlists!
I enjoy a variety of musical styles, so here is my plan: create and share with you playlists of all different genres. Like what? I’m thinking 90’s pop, Best Boy Bands, Hit’s of 70’s, 80’s, 90’s, Today’s Hits…and I am even considering a complete Justin Bieber playlist (please don’t judge me–he has some jams).
In honor of my return home this week (for the first time since July–>I’m a little excited), the first genre of playlist I have chosen is, you guessed it: COUNTRY!! I am a huge country fan being a farm girl and all, so narrowing down my favorite fast-paced songs was kind of tough, but here they are:
Shelby’s Kickin’ Country Playlist
Country Girl– Luke Bryan
That’s the Only Way I Know-Jason Aldean, Eric Church, Luke Bryan
Save a Horse Ride a Cowboy– Big ‘n Rich
If You’re Going Through Hell– Rodney Atkins
5-1-5-0– Dierks Bentley
Gunpowder & Lead– Miranda Lambert
Devil Went Down to Georgia– Charlie Daniels
Good Girl– Carrie Underwood
Life is a Highway– Rascal Flatts
Nothin’ to Lose-Josh Gracin
Somethin’ Like That– Tim McGraw
Summertime – Kenny Chesney
Little White Church– Little Big Town
Cruise – Florida Georgia Line
Total Time: 48 minutes
As I said earlier, this is the first of many playlists to come. If country isn’t really your thing, I am not offended and there will hopefully be something that tickles your fancy at a later date (although you have no idea what you are missing out on). Check back later for either a recipe or workout post; I haven’t decided which yet!
