On a hot day, I sometimes need a little extra motivation to complete my workout. I asked local runners and triathletes from Hub City Runners and DHT Triathlon Training to share their favorite get-up-and-go songs. Suggestions range from current hits to classic tunes, pop, rock country and Christian. Here are 15 fun songs to add to your playlist.
