Awesome breakfast, and now an awesome lunch!


This Quinoa Bowl totally hit the spot!


The ingredients:


  • Quinoa (with a tablespoon of hummus mixed in <—make it really creamy)
  • Roasted broccoli, corn, pinto beans, and mushrooms
  • Tomatoes
  • Fresh basil
  • Salt and pepper


I’ve been working on the remainder of this post for a while now – I’m so excited that it’s complete!  Whenever I run, I tend to listen to pop music.  But I love to turn up some epic movie trailer songs when I feel like I need a dramatic boost.


I turn up the “Nara” song and dash around the corner, pretending I’m chasing a bad guy.  I blast “Escape” and imagine I’m sword fighting my nemesis.  These songs inspire me to run faster, longer, and with much more pizzazz. 


Here are my 10 favorite Movie Trailer Songs for running.  Enjoy!


“Lux Aeterna (Requiem for a Dream Theme Song)” by Clint Mansell


“Nara” by E.S. Posthumus


“O Verona (Reprise)” by Craig Armstrong


“Escape” by Craig Armstrong


“Immediate Music” by Serenata Immortale


“Arise” by ES Posthumus


“Clubbed to Death”  Rob Dougan


“Elba” by ES Posthumus


“Braveheart Theme” by Highland Orchestra


“Unstoppable” by ES Posthumus


Do you recognize any of these movie trailer songs?  Which is your favorite?  Do you run to classical or instrumental music?



  • Freya @ Brit Chick Runs July 28, 2010, 1:38 pm

    O Verona – awesome! I’ve got 2 R & J soundtracks, they have some of the best music!!
    Hummus cooked in – genius 🙂

  • Me-Linh (Sweet and Sweat) July 28, 2010, 1:39 pm

    I love running to a good, long classical song. I love short rap songs as well but a good long classical song could last for more than a mile, which is what I love about them!
    One of my FAVORITE theme running songs is the Pirats of the Carribean theme song. So good!! I think there are some techno renditions to it as well.

  • Emily @ For Sweets Sake July 28, 2010, 1:40 pm

    I’m surprised you don’t have Chariots of Fire on your list!

    • caitlin July 28, 2010, 1:42 pm

      Hahah I am SOOO burnt out on the Chariots of Fire song. I listened to it everyday before my first marathon.

      • Emily @ For Sweets Sake July 28, 2010, 1:50 pm

        haha the key is moderation to songs like that 😉 love the braveheart song! that’s a good pick!

  • tanyasDaily ProductViews July 28, 2010, 1:46 pm

    music definitely helps the running

  • Chelsea @ Run The Line July 28, 2010, 1:46 pm

    I LOVE E.S. Posthumus. Nara is definitely my favorite. I used to listen to it all the time while walking around campus in college, and pretending that I was a spy trying to blend in. (I used to want to be an undercover CIA agent when I was little!) I love your idea though of listening to them while running; I am definitely going to do that for my evening run today. Bad guys, watch out 😉

  • Maren @ Simply Maren July 28, 2010, 1:47 pm

    I struggle to run to music. In high school I was in marching band so when I listen to music when running I always have to step on the beat. The wrong song just goes so bad, and looks kinda funky too!

    • Megan July 28, 2010, 2:13 pm

      I totally agree!! I thought i was the only one! I was a dancer, though, so running to music turns into some ridiculous, ugly dance routine for me. It totally messes with my brain.

      • Jessica July 28, 2010, 2:27 pm

        I don’t step to the beat, but I always end up drumming and playing the guitar to my music while I run…people look at me funny – especially when I’m next to someone on the treadmill. I just get so into the music! lol

        • Maren @ Simply Maren July 29, 2010, 12:07 am

          Thats histerical! I start singing sometimes and get weird side glances from the people running next to me. It’s so awkward.

    • Jen July 28, 2010, 2:35 pm

      Yeah marching band!! I was in it all through high school and still unconsciously fall in-step to music when I walk. What instrument did you play? I played clarinet. Good times 🙂

      • Maren @ Simply Maren July 28, 2010, 2:46 pm

        all about the flute baby!

        • Krista @ Can't Survive on Yarn Alone July 28, 2010, 10:31 pm

          I played flute too! (& colorguard) so easily find myself falling in step too – left foot first when starting to music more times that not

        • Michele October 14, 2010, 12:51 pm

          I played the flute and then piccolo when I reached high school; I soooo cherish those days!

          What great memories!

    • Jessica August 3, 2010, 11:59 pm

      I am the SAME WAY!! I was on colorguard so i have to run on my left foot during beats 1,3, and 5. it makes keeping a good pace very difficult sometimes!

  • Beth @ Beth's Journey to Thin July 28, 2010, 1:47 pm

    That’s an awesome list!! I love the idea of adding hummus to quinoa or other grains, too. Delish!

  • Amanda @ Hungry Vegan Traveler July 28, 2010, 1:47 pm

    These songs are GREAT for running, but BAD for driving!

  • Camille July 28, 2010, 1:54 pm

    Cool idea!
    My favorite movie theme song to run to is the Boondock Saints Theme Song. It is soooo epic!

    • Jessica July 28, 2010, 2:28 pm

      love that song!

  • Tonyne @ Unlikely Success Story July 28, 2010, 1:56 pm

    I love the Requiem for a Dream soundtrack and the songs cycle regularly on my Pandora. I have never thought of running to any of these songs, but I might be adding some to playlists soon! 🙂

  • Michal July 28, 2010, 1:59 pm

    I don’t know if I could run to these, but they are SO gorgeous! And haha, I got excited when I saw The Matrix on your list :-p Epic! I NEED to buy at least some of these songs, just because they are gorgeous. Thank you for sharing!

    • JenATX July 28, 2010, 5:21 pm

      I run to songs from the Matrix soundtrack a lot. I’m loving these comments, I need to update my playlist ASAP!

  • Catherine July 28, 2010, 2:01 pm

    That’s so funny because I always listen to the Braveheart song at the end of all my runs. It’s so soothing. I have a few other movie songs on my iPod. At the beginning of runs, I like something more fast-paced like the theme from Rocky or Boondock Saints.

  • Dorry July 28, 2010, 2:06 pm

    Great songs for running! I love Braveheart. I also LOVE mixing hummus (or avocado) into my quinoa – seems so indulgent. 🙂

  • Marilou @ Mostly Healthy July 28, 2010, 2:06 pm

    I’ve always adore the Requiem for a Dream theme song … but when I used to work in a Video Store, we had trailers loops that were played all day on the televisions. In the last years, so many movie trailers included that song and it became a running gag.

  • Jo July 28, 2010, 2:08 pm

    Requiem for a Dream is my ultimate favourite song for working out – whether that be running or pumping iron, it gets my blood flowing like no other song!

  • Amy @ Amy Starts to Run July 28, 2010, 2:08 pm

    I lurve the Rudy Soundtrack… I should add that to my playlist!

    And hummus in quinoa! Genius!

  • Kelly July 28, 2010, 2:09 pm

    Two good ideas in this post! I really love both soundtracks from the Romeo & Juliet movie that came out when we were like in middle school. I need to put it on my shuffle.

    I’ve been on a quinoa kick lately and I have some sub-par white bean dip in my fridge, so I’m going to try your mix-in strategy. Maybe the dip will be better?

  • LC @ Let Them Eat Lentils July 28, 2010, 2:09 pm


  • Evan Thomas July 28, 2010, 2:10 pm

    I havent heard of any of those, but I like finding new music.
    I run to… umm… Britney Spears. I don’t think that’s classical or instrumental. I think that’s lip syncable.

  • Chandra (@ prettytimepiece) July 28, 2010, 2:12 pm

    i mix hummus into rice and beans a lot – add some hot sauce = delisshhh!

    ah i absolutely cannot run to instrumental music. it must have words that i can really “get in to” during the run, if that makes sense. also depending what mood i am in or what’s happening in my life i’ll like running to certain songs more or less. right now i am loving owl city and lady gaga : D

  • Megan July 28, 2010, 2:14 pm

    I too gravitate toward more Pop music for exercise than I otherwise listen to. However, really classic, heavy string instrumentals can also get me going. Thanks for the movie theme work!

  • Estela @ Weekly Bite July 28, 2010, 2:18 pm

    You read my mind! I was looking for some new running music 🙂

  • Kelly July 28, 2010, 2:18 pm

    I love the R+J and Requiem songs! 🙂

  • Alyssa @ Bride To Be Fit July 28, 2010, 2:18 pm

    What a great post! I love listening to music that gets me pumped up and motivated… the Braveheart one is PERFECT!

  • Maureen @ Notes on a Visual Life July 28, 2010, 2:19 pm

    I love Nara as well! Also, check out A Knife in the Dark and The Bridge of Khazad Dum from the Lord of the Rings (Fellowship of the RIng—aka the 1st one) soundtrack. Awesome! It helps that one of the songs was composed for a RUNNING scene! When the chorus kicks in around 1:10 it gets intense. It’s impossible for me to walk during these songs. I also listen to the Mission Impossible theme sometimes.

  • Amanda July 28, 2010, 2:19 pm

    Mostly I run to music with lyrics but sometimes I run to the soundtrack from Pirates of the Caribbean it really pumps you up

  • Kacy July 28, 2010, 2:20 pm

    Haha, this is awesome. I LOVED the Romeo and Juliet soundtrack when I was younger. That would be an epic running song.

  • Heather (Heather's Dish) July 28, 2010, 2:20 pm

    oh, i love the braveheart soundtrack…i could totally run to that all day and think about being in the highlands of scotland!

    they will never take…OUR FREEDOM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 🙂

  • Stina @ Girl Can July 28, 2010, 2:21 pm

    I haven’t listened to the Require for a Dream soundtrack in so long. The whole sountrack is amazing and wicked intense. I don’t know if I could run to it though. I had to shut it off while driving once because I could actually feel my heart rate climbing as the music got more intense.

  • Jill July 28, 2010, 2:21 pm

    I love to run to the theme from Superman. It makes me feel lighter!

  • Becky July 28, 2010, 2:23 pm

    hese aern’t the theme songs but are featured in these movies prominently and I always think of the movie when I hear them:

    One Day by Matisyahu – it’s in the new Waiting for Superman documentary

    All Or Nothing by Athena Cage – Save the Last Dance

    Siren – Tori Amos – Great Expectations

  • Jen July 28, 2010, 2:28 pm

    It’s pretty obvious and literal, but the “Run Lola Run” soundtrack. Techno!

  • Jen July 28, 2010, 2:30 pm

    Oh and anything from any of the Rocky movies. “Gonna Fly Now” is great for running up hills and “Eye of the Tiger” is just awesome.

  • Bella (Stilettos on the Streetcar) July 28, 2010, 2:31 pm

    Great list! Here are a few of my faves:
    The Last of the Mohicans –
    Jurassic Park –
    Indiana Jones –

    I must admit I like to end my runs with Indiana Jones. It makes me feel very cool. 🙂

    • Wendy G July 28, 2010, 2:52 pm

      Love Love Love the music for Jurassic Park and Indiana Jones! Actually, I just love those movies all together. My husband and I named our dog Indiana!

    • Amy* July 28, 2010, 3:44 pm

      I was going to suggest the music from The Last of the Mohicans, too! So good!*

  • Bella (Stilettos on the Streetcar) July 28, 2010, 2:34 pm

    Last one I promise! The Bourne Trilogy –

  • Nicole July 28, 2010, 2:45 pm

    Totally unrelated but- when I went to the Chapters/Indigo website (Canadian bookstore) and typed in “Operation”, the third option that popped up in the search suggestions was Operation Beautiful! Congrats!

    • Caitlin July 28, 2010, 7:07 pm

      heheh cool!

  • Sarra H July 28, 2010, 2:46 pm

    I loooooveeee clubbed to death!!!!! my favorite “song” ever

  • Wendy G July 28, 2010, 2:48 pm

    I love this post! I love to work out to my favorite musicals! I get music and I get a story which makes the time fly by. I may or may not have been caught doing a fancy little gig while listening to Wicked and walking the dog the other day 🙂

  • Rose July 28, 2010, 2:54 pm

    Oh goodness. That Requiem for a Dream song KILLS me every time.

  • Ellen@FirednFabulous July 28, 2010, 2:54 pm

    I usually ALWAYS run to rap. Or Taylor Swift. Yup, think it’s time to mix it up a bit!

  • Joanna July 28, 2010, 3:00 pm

    Great post! I always need more running songs!

  • Stacey @ Tipping the (Kitchen!) Scales July 28, 2010, 3:01 pm

    I hadn’t ever considered movie theme tunes to run to but that’s mostly because I forget them as soon as the movie has finished! I just run to the pop songs on my ipod, although I desperately need to upload some more so I am way out of date!!

  • Erin July 28, 2010, 3:02 pm

    Thanks for this post! I love running to techno dance music, too, so some of these songs are totally awesome.

    I had an aerobics instructor who loved to use movie soundtrack music in class. My favorites were songs from “300” and when we did kick boxing moves to Star Wars “Dual of the Fates”:

  • Dee July 28, 2010, 3:06 pm

    These are so great, and I love that you enjoy Brittany Spears and also, classical music!!

  • Marie July 28, 2010, 3:10 pm

    Great songs! I always feel silly but one of the Shrek theme songs is one of my favorites to run to… “Holding Out For a Hero” by Frou Frou I think? Haha 🙂

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) July 28, 2010, 3:10 pm

    I love hummus mixed into my quinoa! So good! Love the Requiem for a Dream one. I recognize most of them. Have you heard the music from “The Fountain”? That one is great for working out too! It is done by the same guy who did Requiem!

  • Michelle @ Give Me the Almond Butter July 28, 2010, 3:11 pm

    I totally listen to epic trailer music when I run too!

  • Katherine July 28, 2010, 3:12 pm

    I listen to “The Last of the Mohicans” theme music whenever I need an extra kick. It’s kind of a slow build in the begining but it’s great for running hills.

  • Olivia @ Blissful Runner July 28, 2010, 3:23 pm

    This is SOOO cool (way cooler than running to broadway musical soundtracks which I’ve been known to do). I’m at work right now and can’t play all of these but I’m dying to get home and listen to what you’ve come up with!

  • Monica July 28, 2010, 3:32 pm

    Oh I love this post! I not only believe that music makes the movie, but it makes the workout as well!

    I think this is why I am a spin class junkie – music is such fuel!

  • Sammi July 28, 2010, 3:34 pm

    Oh no no no no no! I’ve seen Requiem for a Dream and that movie is so disturbing. One of my favorites, but it still creeps me out and that song gives me the heebee-geebees every time I hear it.

    Those songs are WAY different from what I listen to on the rare occasion that I listen to music while I run. I’ll have to try them out sometime!

    & I went to borders and they said that they’re really strict on when they release the books so they didn’t have operation beautiful out yet 🙁 Looks like I’ll have to go back next week!

  • Kelsey July 28, 2010, 3:37 pm

    I definitely listen to the Braveheart Theme when I run! It’s my favourite movie, and the music is very ‘epic’ sounding, so I find that it suits a run perfectly!

  • ARPL July 28, 2010, 3:38 pm

    The entire soundtrack from Run Lola Run is awesome for any work out! Also it is a kickass movie. It’s German and stars the fabu Franka Polente.

  • ashleigh July 28, 2010, 3:44 pm

    YUm that quinoa bowl looks delicious. I just bought some and need to make something similar to this ASAP.

    I’m purely pop and country when I run or workout!

  • Ashley Solomon @ Nourishing the Soul July 28, 2010, 3:48 pm

    First, I’m new to your blog and am loving it! Second, I’m embarrassed to say I never really even thought about running to classical or “movie” music… what a great idea! I love the intensity of some of these songs. Thanks for the post!

    • Caitlin July 28, 2010, 6:47 pm

      Welcome to HTP!

  • Jennifer July 28, 2010, 3:48 pm

    I have always been a big fan of yours, but you have completely won me over with this post. I know everyone of those songs, but some of them I couldn’t find to download because it was hard finding the artist. Thank you!!! I have a playlist on my ipod titled “movie soundtracks” and I play it whenever I want an epic run. Have you ever heard the main theme song off of Gladiator? It is not fast paced but it can get the emotions and passion going inside ya. 🙂

  • Heather July 28, 2010, 3:52 pm

    I only recognize 2 of the movies lol!

  • Anya @ Fitness & Sunshine July 28, 2010, 4:04 pm

    I really like dramatic instrumental music! It’d be perfect for running to give that extra wind of energy. 🙂

  • emily July 28, 2010, 4:10 pm

    My latest running song obsession is My Dick by Dirt Nasty, people look at me like I’m *insane* when they overhear my singing it! I think with the sense of humor you seem to have you would be a fan!

  • Cara July 28, 2010, 4:11 pm

    the requiem for a dream song always makes me get super anxious bc of the movie. haha. but i love it anyway.

    one of my fave movie trailer songs to pump me up, is the one by MIA from the pineapple express trailer.

  • Jasmine @ Eat Move Write July 28, 2010, 4:38 pm

    As strange as it is, I really like to run to It’s the Climb by Miley Cyrus. I never saw the movie (I swear!!), but I find it to be the perfect running song, especially since I can usually see a mountain in the distance, considering I live between two of them. 😛

  • Whitney @ Whitinspired July 28, 2010, 4:41 pm

    I’m sure you probably won’t see this b/c It’s waaaaayyyy down here, but I love love love the movie trailer song for Eat, Pray, Love. It’s the Dog Days are Over by Florence + the Machine. They also have another good one from Jennifer’s Body called Kiss with a Fist.

  • Jackie (Peaces of Earth) July 28, 2010, 4:42 pm

    OMG, how awesome is this!!! I don’t ever run to music, but now that I joined a gym music will definitely be necessary to keep me entertained. This is such a genius idea. I would probably run like a mad womsn listening to that Requiem Song. It gives me the serious creeps!

  • stephanie@Avocado Nation July 28, 2010, 4:42 pm

    My favorite movie song is “Shipping Up to Boston” by the Dropkick Murphys from “The Departed.” Best. Running. Song. Ever.

    To this day, I can not listen to the “Requiem for a Dream” song. It makes me think of the movie which makes me so sad! I don’t know what it is.

  • Lea @ Healthy Coconut July 28, 2010, 5:26 pm

    I need to check out these songs…a new running play list always gets me pumped for a run.

    Usually I listen to pop music or remixes, but lately I’ve been listening to Jay-Z and Eminem songs, makes me feel tough and makes me want to go further on my runs, lol!

  • Julia @ July 28, 2010, 6:34 pm

    As a MASSIVE Leo fan – Romeo and Juliet gets my vote!

    However I was surprised not to see a bit of Muse in there, from the baseball scene in Twilight?

    J x

  • Diana July 28, 2010, 6:48 pm

    hey cool tunes! i think we did the 2nd one in yoga yesterday!! 🙂 i love it bc im a big cold case fan and that’s the tv show’s theme song!

  • Lisa (bakebikeblog) July 28, 2010, 6:57 pm

    oooh I love this – what a great idea!!!!

  • Katie July 28, 2010, 7:02 pm

    !!! I love working out to instrumentals!! When I’m in a funk and need a pick me up, I switch over to “The Battle” from The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe soundtrack…ALWAYS makes me pumped up (kinda lame that I just realized I recently posted that I dug the Narnia books…oh well!)

    Also, not a movie soundtrack but “Godspeed You! Black Emperor” has a lot of epic instrumentals…full of dark haunting cello playing that builds up to parts that make you feel like a struggling hero who got their last bit of hope to carry on courageously and win a battle…yea definitely a good workout feeling!

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin July 28, 2010, 7:03 pm

    That quinoa bowl looks perrrfect!

    I usually listen to a lot of Top 40 stuff for running. It’s not my usual music preference, but I like that it’s so upbeat!

  • Skyler Meine July 28, 2010, 7:15 pm

    Love the Braveheart sound track. Perfect for some running.

  • Amber K @ sparkpeople July 28, 2010, 7:16 pm

    I actually didn’t recognize most of these. I need really good lyrics to work out to. I tend to pretend I am putting on a concert and rocking the stage!

  • Sarah (Running to Slow Things Down) July 28, 2010, 7:42 pm

    Braveheart would be such an awesome song to run to. Now I’m really itching to get an ipod. :mrgreen:

  • Niki (Running in Pink) July 28, 2010, 8:34 pm

    Now I *realllyy* want to watch Romeo + Juliet! I adore that movie.

  • Laura (Starloz) July 28, 2010, 8:43 pm

    Oh balls, this was a walk down memory lane. Thanks!

  • Faith @ LovelyAsCharged July 28, 2010, 8:46 pm

    Is it sad that I really don’t recognize any of these? Except the Braveheart…

    I need my running music to be upbeat and have lyrics to sing along with to take my mind off the running itself, otherwise my mind starts wandering to all the things I’m not enjoying about the run, like being tired or wanting to quit. The music from National Treasure could probably work, though, since I love that film so much!

  • Caroline July 28, 2010, 9:01 pm

    Ahhhhhh the requiem one is a classic!!!

  • Holly @ couchpotatoathlete July 28, 2010, 9:06 pm

    Those songs are great and to be honest I could run to any music. I actually prefer to run without any music — I just focus on my breathing, the sound of my feet hitting the pavement and the sounds of nature all around me!

  • maria @ Chasing the Now July 28, 2010, 9:21 pm

    I’ve never ran to classical music–actually I rarely run with music. So it was fun to read and hear some of these songs.

  • Wei-Wei July 28, 2010, 9:44 pm

    I don’t know any of these songs… -____- but eh, I can’t see any of the videos so I can’t recognise any of them anyway. 😛


  • Diana @ frontyardfoodie July 28, 2010, 9:51 pm

    I’m horrific at running to quality music… quality I mean music I listen to any other time except running. I have to have serious hip hop beats to stay alert during long runs so that I’m not bored!

  • Nicole July 28, 2010, 10:09 pm

    I love to run to movie soundtracks…I used to listen to a mix of songs from the Unfaithful (intense movie!) soundtrack. Actually, I think ES Posthumus is the composer of some of the songs. I live in Charlotte and go to Y2Yoga and coincidentally, Tanner played a song by ES Posthumus in class! Maybe we can go to class together sometime!

  • Krista @ Can't Survive on Yarn Alone July 28, 2010, 10:35 pm

    I now need to find my Romeo + Juliet cd!

    Matrix all the way for me.

    I don’t think it was in the trailer but BloodBath from the first Blade movie when they are at the rave is a great song to run to – no vocals just a great repeating song.

  • Tara @ Food for Fuel July 28, 2010, 10:46 pm

    You should listen to The Last of the Mohicans soundtrack—the theme is great! So is the one from Boondock Saints…

  • tonya July 28, 2010, 10:58 pm

    the soundtrack from smokin’ aces ‘dead reckoning’ by clint mansell is amazing.

  • collette July 29, 2010, 9:09 am

    i love the necklace. thumbs up x

  • Keri July 29, 2010, 9:36 am

    Oooh the entire soundtrack to Requiem for a Dream has always been a favorite. Love the rest of the list, it’s all so intense and awesome!

  • Claire July 29, 2010, 10:07 am

    What a great idea! Most times I opt to keep my ipod at home and just take advantage of the quiet but lately I’ve been needing the motivation (or distraction) of music, but I hate how noisy it can sometimes be. These are the perfect compromise! Thanks 🙂

  • Mallory July 29, 2010, 12:26 pm

    I’m sad. I loved Braveheart and I love that song, but I think listening to it will just remind me what an epic douchebag Mel Gibson turned out to be.

  • TheKiwiBex July 29, 2010, 3:58 pm

    Awesome choices – I thought I was the only one who exercises to Lux Aeterna and Clubbed to Death! Def going to download O Verona now too.

    I find dance music really motivates me too 🙂

  • Nicole Y. August 1, 2010, 12:10 pm

    I definitely recommend “Chevaliers de Sangreal” by Hans Zimmer from the Da Vinci Code score!!!

  • Dee August 2, 2010, 1:53 pm

    Oh! you named my favorite as number 1! I can’t wait to listen to the rest. 🙂

  • Susie August 12, 2010, 12:40 am

    Check out “Sweet Disposition” by The Temper Trap. Also in Eat, Pray, Love. Idk if it’s on the soundtrack though.

    • Susie August 12, 2010, 12:44 am

    This is great!! I’m always looking for new music to listen to when I’m running.

    I run to soundtrack music as well. Try The Jablonski Variations on a theme by HZ/Camaroon Border Post from the Tears of the Sun Soundtrack.

    Definitely an interesting take on running music. Never really considered movie trailer songs! Not sure if they’re quite my style but I definitely enjoyed listening to them! 🙂

    I LOVE “Clubbed to Death.” I’ve been listening to it for over a year and it’s so motivating. Great for biking/spin classes!

    I love listening to dramatic music when I work out, although, I didn’t recognize a lot of these songs! My newest favorite is a cover of Creep by Radiohead being sung by a choir. I heard for one of the first previews of the Social Network, and it’s so haunting and beautiful!

    I might be the only guy to leave a comment but I came across your site while searching for running music. I love your point of view. It’s powerful and mystical. After running across the same Journey, Kelly Clarkson, and AC/DC mixes, your take on motivation and inspiration is refreshing. You’re a pretty special girl. Cool recipe too!

    Incredible playlist. Needed a new playlist for a marathon tomorrow, I just found it.

    “The Final Fight” by Rob Duncan (from the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer) is a great running song! I also love the Titanic soundtrack and the Tron soundtrack.
