Hey GT! How ya doin’? I just went for my first proper run in a full week, having been stuck inside with some absolutely horrible flu-type virus I picked up at my first race last Sunday. I made a new running playlist beforehand and it got me super jazzed so now I’m wondering what y’all like running to. (Or other exercise!)

My current playlist is all upbeat tracks from Angel Haze, Azealia Banks, Babymetal, Beyonce, Big Freedia, Childish Gambino, Disclosure, Eminem, Girl Talk, Kanye West, Lady Leshurr, Major Lazer, Missy Elliott, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Saul Williams, Soulwax, Wiley and 3 Amigos. My last one is all drum&bass but this one is mostly rap, I guess. And Japanese pop-metal.

My favourite running album is 45:33 by LCD Soundsystem. It’s amazing. It was designed with running in mind. I think Nike and iTunes hired them to do it. It’s kind of electronica disco? It’s great.

What songs get you all pumped up? What should I add into my rotation?
