advice for a race mix...

i need your help!

this evening im running a 5k and i am trying to make a mix for my ipod...
but i don't really know what songs to put on it...
any good ones that i need to put on...
what songs pump you up...
i need music advice stat!!!

until then i will be busy in the kitchen...
trying to recreate the wedding cake my inlaws had at their wedding...
40 years ago...
13 years before i was born...
for their surprise anniversary party this weekend...

gotta love the 70's...
what a cool time...


  1. Under pressure-David Bowie
    Born to run- springstein
    Your so fast that's probably all you will need!

  2. this is really shameful, but i love to run to katy perry. it's just so peppy i can't help myself!!

    good luck with that cake. please post pics when you're done :)

  3. I run to Katy Perry too! It's really upbeat and fun. Kesha is good too... I know, I know... Don't judge me! haha

  4. I don't run to music at all, but songs that I think might be good to run to are:
    Usher - More (Jimmy Joker remix)
    Rhianna - S&M
    30 Seconds to Mars - Closer to the Edge
    Jimmy Eat World - Sweetness

  5. That is so sweet of you to recreate their cake! I can't race with music. It messes up my concentration. BUT- when I just run for fun or I am on the elliptical I like to listen to Pandora and I pick some kind of dance music station (something super cheesy like DJ Tiesto) and sometimes I wonder "who am I right now?" because it's not my typical music selection.

  6. Beyonce's "Girls Who Run the World" is a good pick me up song!

  7. Afrojax "Take Over Control."

    Have fun at the 5K!

  8. Chemical brothers- "galvanize"
    It's one of my favorites.

    Good luck on the 5k!

  9. Young Blood by The Naked and Famous

  10. DANGIT! I missed this! Hope the race goes well! I love the old Rihana song "Hard" with Jay Z. I listened to that OVER and OVER during speedwork sessions last year!!

  11. Anything from Ryan Farish!

    Joy-Ryan farish is amazing

  12. I love that you're recreating that cake. That's the sweetest gift to them on their anniversary!
