There's nothing like the feeling I get at the end of a long run (or even a short, fast one!). Because running is my drug, I pack my playlists with songs that evoke similar feelings of awesomeness. Sometimes that means catchy dance songs or songs with a powerful beat. Other times it's because a lyric seems to speak particularly about running, or about how empowering it is to push my body to its limits. Sometimes, it's just because a song makes me laugh.
I call this my "Girl Power" playlist, not because it's full of feminist lyrics, female artists or Spice Girls songs, but because it gets me through the workouts that make me the proudest to be -- and run like -- a girl.
