For as long as I can remember, music has been a solid part of my life. My father has played in a band since he was old enough to hold a guitar, rocking on everything from guitar to bass to singing too. He instilled that love of music in me from day one – hell, I’m even named after an Allman Brothers Band song! He brought me up on every different kind of music you can imagine: Madonna, Van Halen, BTO, the Monkees – nothing was off limits.
Because I was raised on such a musical foundation, I’m always looking for new and different music to score my every day life, including my running!
My “RUN” playlist is constantly in flux as I grow tired of some songs and discover new ones. But to discover more, I figured I should put some of my favorites out there to see if it’ll get you in the sharing mood! So here’s a snapshot of my current running playlist – take a listen and see if you can’t find a new favorite!

My favorite running song is “American Girl” by Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers!
Good one! I love singing and car-dancing along to it when I drive, I may need to try it out on my run tonight..
Best Day of My Life by the America Authors is so happy and bouncy, I love it! Also, anything by the Spice Girls is a good choice.
