Whether it's running, biking or hiking, I love to exercise outside. But I know that for me (and I'm sure for many others), it can be hard to get up and exercise -- especially in the sticky, humid, summer weather. I've been looking for different ways to inspire myself, and I've found that some good upbeat music is the absolute best motivation.

I know how distracting it can be to put your iPod on shuffle and try to navigate through your slow songs while working out at the same time, so I've created a playlist for my workouts. This is the pump-up playlist I've been using to get myself up and moving this summer. Check it out!
