Music Mondays – New Additions

A few weeks ago I found myself once again looking for some tunes to add to my shorter, 5K-ish, playlists. After giving a handful a fair shot here are four new additions that have made the cut.

My Songs Know What You Did In the Dark (Light Em Up)

by Fall Out Boy

Hall of Fame

by The Script (featuring

Can’t Hold Us

by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis (featuring Ray Dalton)

Victory Lap

by Macklemore & Ryan Lewis

It’s worth noting that I truly believe music can be viewed as any other piece of running gear. The first run in a new pair of shoes might be great, but after a week or two, blisters start to rear their ugly heads. I find myself frequently previewing music from the comfort of my home office and thinking the track will be the best addition to my playlist since Eminem’s “Lose Yourself”. More often than not, it just doesn’t stand the test of time.

Any recent playlist additions that you’re sure will stand the test of time?

    “You can go the distance. You can run the mile. You can walk straight through hell with a smile.” Gets me through any run!
