    "and we don't give up till we run out of desire

    race to the finish and we never get tired

    We are the winners cause we hold the world title

    We started slow but we beat you in the final". ...love it!

    And of course, "Running up that Hill" by Kate Bush! Listened to it regularly whilst doing C25K and also the very first time I ran HM distance!! (Yep, I am a fan!πŸ™‚)

    Brave by Sara Bareilles (doesn't mention running, but I l love to run to it!)

  • Run Boy Run by Woodkid

    There's a Storm a Comin' by Richard Hawley (for very slow runs! or to slow down)

    Rusty Cage by Johnny Cash

    Run Though the Jungle by Creedence Clearwater Revival (mainly because its mentioned so much in The Talisman books)

    loads of others

  • Keep the Car Running by Arcade Fire, Running by Jessie Ware :)

    When I first started C25K I listened to Born to Run a LOT. Something about that saxophone solo...

  • There's a German group, E Nomine, a mixture of dance and Gothic, they have some brilliant songs with a great beat - my favourite one has the refrain (translated) "Run, run for your life" and then you hear the pounding of horses' hooves - I run when that one comes on!

  • Oooh yes... Die Schwarzen Reiter

  • Yes, love it. Was introduced to them by my teenage son who was quite bemused at his mother's taste in music!

  • I was listening to CCR earlier! Love em πŸ™‚

  • I got my 5k PB from Donna Summer, ' I feel Love' on a loop... its fab!!

  • I shall be putting together a Deezer playlist with them all and use them on my next run :)

  • A blast from my past :)

  • Moby: Run On. The tempo might be a little fast for some runners, but it's on my running playlist.

  • Velvet Underground Run, run, run.

  • Jo Jo Gunne Run, run, run

    Well, the first 2min20 anyway.
