I don’t work out as often as I should. Ideally, it would be 4+ times/week but it ends up at 2 or 3 on a good week. I love to run. I’m not very fast and I rarely ever do more than 5 miles but I love it nonetheless. A few years ago, someone jokingly said that I couldn’t run a half-marathon. Pshaww, proved that MF wrong! I trained for 3 months and by some grace of God, ran 13.1 miles on a cloudy September saturday in East Hampton. The feeling of completing it was incredible (as you can tell by the look on my face below).

Training through a hot New York City summer was another story. I had to get up before work 3 times every week to run because the evenings were debilitatingly humid. I did my long runs on the weekends. To get through the miles, I relied a lot on music. To this day, I have trouble going for a run without blasting my workout mix. I am that girl you see dancing and singing along to music while she runs. Seriously. I do that. It makes the other runners smile and it keeps me going.

 

In order to keep my workout mix fresh and fly, I rely on my dad, my sister, and my husband to constantly update me with their latest exercise-inspired jams. My dad resigns to top 40 pop music, my husband loves rap, and my sister pounds the pavement to dub step. Me? I like a mix of all of their favorite genres. I thought I’d share my current work out mix (it’s truly ever-changing) with you now as the weather warms up and we all start working towards our bikini-bodies.

 

You can find my full work out mix here but in the meantime, here is a preview:

 

 

I would love to know what your favorite work-out songs are so I can add them to my list!
