When you ask other runners what is on their music playlist, you will undoubtedly find a wide variety of tunes, beats and lyrics. That is what makes the running community so unique is the diverseness of our community. I love that we can all be out there running while jamming to our own style of music. I personally love motivational Christian workout songs for my playlist.
When creating my own music play list for training and racing, I found that I was really drawn to Contemporary Christian hits for my workout music. Not only for my personal beliefs, but these songs have the perfect blend of beat and inspiration. These songs are perfect for tough workouts and runs.
You can totally rock out to Contemporary Christian music that has the right beat, lyrics, and message to get your heart pumping and legs moving fast! These songs have motivational lyrics about pushing through, overcoming obstacles and believing that you can do anything. That is the perfect mix for me when hitting the trail, road or race!
I love being reminded of God’s amazing grace, strength, and power when I am not feeling it while on a run. God is awesome, and having that steady stream of inspirational, motivational, upbeat music streaming through my ear buds is what I love about my alone running time.
Here are 30 of my current favorite positive, inspirational and motivational Christian workout and running songs I have on my playlist. Each song has a positive message to help you push past the struggle to keep moving forward.
