Shop Now: 2021 Limited-Edition Run Streak T-Shirts As a senior health and fitness editor here at Runner\u2019s World, I\u2019ve read my fair share of studies and stories about the benefits of music . Research shows upbeat jams can motivate you through high-intensity workouts , like sprints, and enhance the enjoyment factor on those sprints. A pumped-up playlist can also boost power and endurance during a strength set. But what is the key to all this? Listening to music you actually enjoy. For me, that includes songs that get me snapping my fingers and singing along while putting one foot in front of the other\u2014a.k.a. music that takes me right to the imaginary dance floor to break it down (or hopefully, speed up). I\u2019ve always been a lover of straight-up top 40 hits. They\u2019re popular for a reason: The catchy beats and sing-a-long lyrics make it easy to listen to each song on repeat. (And on repeat, I do.) I could listen to Whitney Houston, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and Adele all day. And I can sing every word of most Justin Bieber albums and music videos , too. So, of course, they all make an appearance on this playlist. My latest note-laced love is Kygo , a DJ who makes up most of the line-up. He pulls from top artists (like Whitney and Miguel) and creates these beats that just make you want to move and lift up your mood. Even in the making of this list, I had to get up out of my seat for some shoulder and hip shakes because one cannot just sit when listening to party jams like his. I like songs that make me feel alive and energized. And if I did my job right, that\u2019s what this dance-pop playlist will do for you. Whether you\u2019re running three miles or 10, this one-hour and 18-minute mix should get you through some tough mental moments. So, press play, get lost in the rhythms, and maybe even hit a little dance number when the stoplight strikes red. No matter what, may the good vibes fuel your run.
