Running definitely isn't easy. Whether you're a beginner or a pro, it's a continuously challenging workout because you're competing with your own time and endurance—and, I mean, that's the point! As the saying goes, no pain, no gain. But a killer playlist is sure to help you power through every single mile.

You need those high-energy songs to motivate you at the start, hardcore bass-heavy bops to keep your body in a steady rhythm, "angry" songs for the excruciatingly difficult moments, and your all-time faves as a reward during your cool down.
