My Stinky Run + My 10K Playlist

I didn't realize this, but my last post was my 150th! WOW! If I wasn't lame and boring, I would've done a giveaway or something.  Right now, I only have 5 registered followers, but according to Blogger, somewhere around 150 people check my blog weekly.  A giveaway might be neat in the near future.  But on to today's post:

I ran a very stinky 3.2 miles this morning with a friend.  Part of that 3.2 was a BEAST of a hill, which lasts for almost the entire first mile.  Add to that the humidity outside, and the fact that I haven't really ran in almost two weeks, and you get the stinky part.  It was rough.  The only thing that got me through in a relatively decent time (when you consider all those stinky factors mentioned above) was my playlist.  I don't know if any of you listen to music while you workout, but I can't go without it.  My current playlist looks like this:

Fastest Girl In Town, Miranda Lambert
Dance the Night Away, David Banner (from Footloose)
Cruise (Remix), Florida Georgia Line and Nelly
Tell Me How You Like It, Florida Georgia Line
Get Your Shine On, Florida Georgia Line
Party In The U.S.A., Miley Cyrus
Airplanes Part 2, B.O.B. and Eminem
Just A Dream, Nelly
One More Night, Maroon Five
Keep Your Head Up, Andy Grammar
No Surprise, Daughtry
Eight Second Ride, Jake Owen
Love The Way You Lie, Eminem
No Diggity, Blackstreet and Dr. Dre

According to, which calculates beats per minutes in songs and pairs them with running times, this playlist should have me running 8-ish minutes per mile.  It didn't work on today's run, but it has in the past, so I'm keeping my fingers crossed.  What are your top workout songs?
