Salty Running boss and mother of 3 little ones with PRs of 3:10:15 (26.2), 1:25:59 (13.1) and 18:15 (5k). I love to write about running culture, mental training, and fitting in a serious running habit with the rest of a busy life.

  1. Golly I need new tunes!!! Thanks for this. My top five would be:

    Eminem: Lose Yourself
    Freddie Mercury & Monserrat Caballe: Barcelona
    Fun: Some Nights
    Fat Boy Slim: Right here, right now
    Green Day: Blvd of Broken Dreams

  2. I can’t believe I didn’t think of any LMFAO myself, great pick Rosemary!

    For anyone who’s gearing up for the New Orleans Marathon this year, there’s a great tune called “Second Line” that I really jammed out to today on my run; my favorite version is by Dejan’s Olympia Brass Band. Happy Holidays, Salties!
