Posted August 1st, 2017 by Brian Hock

We asked our 2017 Simple Hydration Run Team members a variety of running-related questions. In this first post we share their favorite run songs. Give them a listen and you might share song or find a new one to add to your playlist.

What is your favorite running song?

Pris Chew
“Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor

Sarah Dudek
I have a very eclectic playlist for running. It spans all genres from classical to rap to country. I always love how each long run is a little different and a certain song can come on and inspire you differently.

Jaja Ferrer
“Liztomania” by Phoenix

Valeri Gatlin
“All About that Bass” by Meghan Trainor. It has a great beat/cadence. And is just an awesome song!!!

Sharon Hanks
“The Script – Hall of Fame” feat. will.i.am

Sherry Minkiewicz
I like a lot of songs but I’ll say “Don’t Stop Believin’” by Journey.

Robin Zehnder Muskopf
“Migrane” by Twenty One Pilots
(the lyrics just define me in my head and running clarifies those thoughts).

Lisa Ospitale
“Lose Yourself” by Eminem

Elle Park
I don’t have one anymore because I no longer listen to music while running.

Jhay Ann Santos
“Ready for Anything” by Landon Austin

Jodi Stuber
I actually don’t listen to music much anymore while running. Every now and then when I need some extra motivation on my run, I tend to go for more hip hop music or something with a catchy beat.

Jon Bohnsack
“Lose Yourself” by Eminem

Reman Chim Tat Wee
“Hymn for the Weekend” by Coldplay

Alberto Gomez Monteseguro
“Go Solo” by Tom Rosenthal

and “Only If You Run” by Julian Plenti

Hafisz Nosly Wazid
I don’t listen to songs while running nowadays, but I used to be listening to punk rock stuff while running, and my favorite is “New Beginnings” by Finch.

Brian Hock
“God’s Gonna Cut You Down” by Johnny Cash

and I like to finish hard runs with Snow Patrol’s “Open Your Eyes” as it builds nicely when trying to finish strong.

Ian Lye
It really depends on whether I’m doing a tempo workout or whether I’m going on a chilled, long run. But right now, it’s probably “Interlude” by Sleevenotes.

Tony Allen Riggs
“Eye of the Tiger” by Survivor
