Best Running Song for March!

Yeah, we just had snow and wind and three straight days of driving rain...

But it's MARCH AT LAST! I'm talking about Spring, baby. It's almost here. As you should know, if you've spent more than two seconds at The R's, I am the most fair weather runner in the Northern Hemisphere. I live to run in the sun, in the heat, under the blue skies. I'm ready for the heat. Bring it on.

So what we need here is a sunny song. A Spring song. A song that will make you think of blue skies even if the rain hasn't gone away yet.

And that brings us to Pharrell Williams and Fun Fun Fun. Just a happy song. You can not hear this song and not want to go out for a quick five miles! I love it.

And since the song of the month is from a movie - the awesome Despicable Me! - let's check out a couple more tunes that come from a recent, oscar nominated, flick. First, "Mombasa" from Inception. And here's the actual scene with the song: guys with guns always make you run faster! And of course, the Main Theme from Inception, Dream Is Collapsing. If this one doesn't get you across the finish line, there's nothing that will!

Hans Zimmer...you were robbed at the Oscars, buddy.
