Sing it Sister!

Hello and Happy Thursday!
I would like to say that this post would inspire thought provoking discussion and provide deep insight into one working mom's life.  But, today, that is just not the case.  I need basic help in the form of music - and I am desperate.

For Christmas, I asked for (and received) a Ipod Shuffle, so I could work on accomplishing my goal of running a 5K in October.  How does this help my goal, you ask?  Well, when I workout (or should, I say, when I used to workout?), I like to listen to music.  A good song helps keep you going that extra couple of yards or run just a couple of more minutes.

Unfortunately, when I went to make my playlist, I was at a loss for good workout songs.  Currently, my list looks something like this:
Tim McGraw - but not the slow ones
Nickelback – but not the slow ones
Eminem - Lose yourself (from the 8 Mile movie)
Kenny Chesney
Darius Rucker
Nelly (yes, I am old)
Jason Aldean
Great White – Once Bitten, Twice Shy
Skid Row
Motley Crue
Van Halen – maybe…

While I do favor all kinds of music; when I am working out, I want something upbeat / fast paced.  And it has been a long time since I have listened to anything that didn't feature some kind of cartoon character...

So, does anyone have any favorite songs they like to workout to?  Any advice is greatly appreciated!
