Christmas Music Running Playlist

With having started half marathon training this week, and Christmas right around the corner, I’m thinking that I need a seasonal update for my playlist.  One of the many things that I love about Christmas is Christmas music, and thankfully, there are many great Christmas songs that are upbeat and are perfect for keeping me motivated while working out.

Some of the songs that I’ll be including on my Christmas Music Running Playlist include:

“Run Run Rudolph” by Chuck Berry

“Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays” by N’Sync

“Carol of the Bells” by Trans-Siberian Orchestra

“Last Christmas” by Wham!

“Step into Christmas” by Elton John

And my absolute favorite pop Christmas song…

“All I Want For Christmas Is You” by Mariah Carey

QOTD: What is your favorite Christmas song to listen to while working out?

    You have my favorites up there – Last Christmas, Carol of the Bells and All I Want for Christmas. I use to work at Limited Too during high school…and I remember hearing the NSYNC song on repeat for that season haha.

    Good reminder, I’ve still got Halloween songs on mine so need to switch them out 🙂 I love Last Christmas and Carol of the Bells.

  5. Never thought of running to TSO’s carol of the bells, but it really would be a good running song! I don’t often run to Christmas music, but I may try it out this year….there are some punk rock Christmas songs that would be good to run to 🙂
