Now that summer is officially in full swing (and bringing the heat!), we really want your playlists to pop. And don’t worry, we get it – your tastes vary. Heck, they’re ridiculously diverse amongst our staff! To keep everyone’s earbuds happy, we’re plugging you in to the songs that make us sweat. Every Monday will reveal a new editor’s playlist – pick one who lines up with your preferred beats, download their top tunes and get back to enjoying your workouts.

On long, slow runs, I listen to the “This American Life” podcasts, but for tempo runs, I need the musical equivalent of caffeine. I need the kind of songs that, even if I’d just eaten a burrito bowl and was in the middle of a “Teen Mom” marathon, make me get up off the couch and dance. If it makes me feel like dancing, it makes me feel like running. Like a good meal, a good playlist is all about balance: Some bubblegum pop my teenage sister is probably too old for, some rap I like to think she’s too young to be listening to, and a little indie-darling stuff I hope she thinks I’m cool for liking.
