Seems to be that time again. That time when my  music is getting a bit stale and so I figured it’s time to bust out some new jams! Per usual I warn you of the you tube videos I’ve linked too or the lyrics of the songs. I just think they are upbeat and great running jams, but if you hear an f-bomb or see some booty shakin’ in the videos, I’m not to blame. Here are my some of my new faves.

I Made It by Kevin Rudolf featuring Lil’ Wayne, Birdman and Jay Sean aka the Cash Money Heroes

Rude Boy by Rhianna

Bulletproof by La Roux

According To You by Orianthi

All the Above by Mario and T-Pain (This is a fave! I love this song!)

Eenie Meenie by Justin Bieber featuring Sean Kingston (Obviously I love Bieber)

Hip To My Heart by The Band Perry

Young Forever by Jay-Z (love this one too)

Lemonade by Gucci Mane (I have a weird obsession with Gucci, even if he’s in jail)

Smile by Uncle Kracker (<3)

Solo by LYAZ

Still by Tim McGraw (LOVE this song, great one by Tim)

OMG by Usher featuring Will.I.Am (this is such a great running beat)

Billionaire by Travis McCoy featuring Bruno Mars (I warm up to this one sometimes)

Just Breathe by Pearl Jam (for when I’m feeling a little emo and want to cry and run. ha ha)

Break Your Heart by Taio Cruz (another great beat to run to)

Fed Up by DJ Khaled featuring Usher, Rick Ross, Young Jeezy and Drake

I’ve posted other music posts under the links at the top of the page, you can check out the other posts under Reviews and Music. So pump up the jams and get out there! If these don’t get you moving, I really don’t know what will. I have been having a good week of working out and resting my legs from running so much. I am just starting to feel rested and it’s a wonderful feeling for once.

It’s finally April and though it’s not my favorite month, I’m thankful for the people surrounding me, those who care about me and love me unconditionally and those who encourage me. Life is all about learning to love and learning to never forget. Memories are made daily, hold onto those memories for you’ll never know when you’ll need a smile.

PS If you haven’t entered the iFitness belt giveaway, I’m picking a winner on Wednesday!

    I don’t know ANY of these songs. Maybe I should start listening to the radio. Or start dating a 21-year old.

    I must be older than Billy. Bieber?! Love the emo songs. That drove most of last year…nothing like good alternative rock.

    Today while running I realized I was so sick of everything on my iPod and I’m determined to update it before my marathon next month. So, thanks for the great suggestions!

    I love Gucci’s Lemonade! ha ha… it’s probably hilarious to see me rock out to it…

    And “Bulletproof” got me through the last mile of my most recent race! Love it.
