"The Jam" Thursday - What is blowing up my iPod

Music has its time and place for me, especially when it comes to running.  When I do my runs during the week I normally don't listen to music because I'm usually by myself and it's just safer for me to not have that distraction.  When I race though, that is a totally different situation.  I want something bumping in my ears and motivating me to keep moving and churning the legs.

This past weekend was no exception when I had my tunes going during my Dawg Dash 10K race.  There were some great songs on my list, but one stood out that I had to feature for today's edition of "The Jam" Thursday.  This is where I introduce you to a "jam" that gets my booty bumping and my legs pumping.

As I mentioned, this song was on my playlist during the race this past weekend and it helped me push through a pretty tough time at the end when all I wanted to do was quit.  This song got my spirits up and kept me going through the fatigue.  So today I present to you:

Everybody needs a little Rihanna in their life, right?  This was a fairly big hit on the Top 40 charts last year and I loved it when I heard it on the radio, so naturally it had to be on my iPod for when I ran.  This has a great beat to it and really helped me out when my energy was lagging.  Not to mention that it's kinda fun to run with the words playing in your ear "who's that chick?", yeah, running awesomeness at it's best.  Well not really, but it's a fun little ego boost. :)

It's almost the weekend, still time to get this on your playlist for your long run this weekend!  Enjoy!
