Friday Five - New Songs for my Running Playlist

My marathon is this Saturday and I've been busy psyching myself up for it. One of the things I've done in the past week is tweak my Running playlist. I've bought new songs, removed some older songs, reordered things and played the songs in car during my work commute to "test run" the music.

Here are Five new songs I've added:

Outside by Calvin Harris, featuring Ellie Goulding
I love the beat and tempo. And sometimes I feel like I'm on the outside...

Uptown Funk by Mark Ronson, featuring Bruno Mars
So indicative of 2015, with its infectious riffs and it always pumps me up. And it's Bruno Mars!

I Lived by OneRepublic
I have three OneRepublic songs on my Running playlist, so I must like them! For this song, the lyrics really speak to me
I, I did it all
I, I did it all
I owned every second
That this world could give
I saw so many places
The things that I did
With every broken bone
I swear I lived

Shut Up and Dance by Walk the Moon
It's just a fun song that makes you want to dance

And for something a little less dance-y: Riptide by Vance Joy

I am looking forward to grooving to these songs - they will help me with my final six miles.
