50 Running Songs for Kara's Ragnar Relay Race

My baby is running the Ragnar Relay (Wasatch Back here in Utah) this weekend. Their team is called The Ragnarchy. This fall she will run the Ragnar in Las Vegas. She'll get medals for each as well as the "Saints and Sinners" for running both races in the same year.  I ran with her last year, and we had a blast with our team as everything about the experience was fun (except the running!). I hurt my feet with plantar fasciitis and am not running anymore. However, I'm volunteering for her team to show my support that way. Further, I put together the following running songs playlist for her and her team (GREAT Relationship Principle: Support your partner in their interests). These songs are (loosely) related to running, the shoes you run in, the road you run on, and the race itself. I thought I'd put this up for you any of my readers who are alos runners and are looking for some great songs to motivate you on your runs. Enjoy. What songs would YOU add?
