"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!🙂)

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!
