Best Running Song for December!

As I've mentioned before, like right here, sometimes you just have to run angry. Sure, running happy is all well and good. But it's winter out there folks. The rain is coming down, the wind is howling, and that bastard in the SUV just splashed you by driving through the puddle on purpose!

Time to run angry!

And that's where the Revenge Song comes in...

So, from a wonderful suggestion by dedicated R's reader Marilyn, this month's Best Running Song is nothing other than the absolutely ultimate revenge song: F**k You by Cee Lo Green.

Hey, we've all been there at one time or another. If you haven't had a bad breakup lately, well, think back to high school already. I'm sure you'll be able to come up with something.

And while it just doesn't have the same effect without the oh-so-perfect swearing, there are clean versions of the song out there - unfortunately titled Forget You. Or F****t You, if you prefer. And here he is on Ellen live - clean. And here he is on Ellen live - not clean.

Enjoy. And get out there and run angry!

  1. Ran to it today- still works.
    Odd in the Christmas season, that I'd be running to this in the beginning of my run..I guess I'm more complicated than I thought.
    Will make sure A looks at this - she'll like the shout out for moving on to better things.
