Subway Commit to Fit Giveaway: iPod Shuffle and $10 iTunes gift card

In the spirit of giving away other people’s loot, it’s time for another Subway Commit to Fit giveaway. As I mentioned before, the Commit to Fit program is encouraging people to set their own fitness goals, like Jared Fogle aka Jared the Subway Guy who is training for the New York City Marathon. This time around, they’re giving away a green iPod shuffle and a $10 iTunes gift card. (For the tech geeks among us, this is the 4th generation 2BG iPod shuffle.)

iPod Shuffle

There is no doubt a good playlist can help you keep moving. When I ran a half-marathon, it was only a dance remix of Bryan Adams singing “Run to You” that got me through mile 10. Here are some of the songs I’ve been listening to on my walks recently. Links go to YouTube or iLike, and occasionally feature an anime fan video:

Catie Curtis – You Can Always Be Gone
Justice – D.A.N.C.E. (Not only a catchy song, but a good review of spelling.)
Seasun – Delorean
The Veils – Sit Down by the Fire
Carbon Leaf – The Boxer
Ahmet and Dweezil Zappa – Hit Me Baby One More Time
Glasvegas – Geraldine (Best song about a social worker that I’ve ever heard.)
Shout Out Louds – Tonight I Have to Leave it
Florence + the Machine – Dog Days are Over

This giveaway is open to residents of the United States only. To enter, leave a comment below listing one of your favorite songs to work out to. Contest closes at 11:59pm EST on Sunday, October 24, 2010. Winner will be chosen randomly. For more information about the Commit to Fit program and for a chance to win up to $26,200, visit the Subway Facebook page.

Disclosure: The prizes listed in this post were provided for free.

I love “Where the Streets Have No Name” by U2 because the song kind of starts out of nothing and builds so it gives me more energy as it goes on, and has a good beat for running (outside or on a treadmill/elliptical).

My absolute favorite songs to work-out to are ‘Apache’ and ‘Rapper’s Delight’ by the Sugar Hill Gang. They make me want to put on roller skates and roller skate on the treadmill. I always start out with one of those two songs to get me in the mood…of course, if I am watching ‘Hoarders’ while on the treadmill, I wait until it is over to listen to my songs. Nothing like watching a good episode of ‘Hoarders’ while walking on the treadmill.

I’m pretty sure I’m a total dork when it comes to my workout playlist, but I refuse to apologize for this. My playlist is full of peppy songs from the Glee soundtrack and a slew of ridiculously cheesy 80′s music (think “Eye of the Tiger”, Whitney’s “I wanna dance with somebody”, “Girl’s Just Wanna Have Fun”, “Hey Mickey”, etc). Ironically, I would never choose to listen to these songs in my normal day to day, but they are my absolute fav when I’m running or on the elliptical. They make me smile.

By far, my favorite favorite workout song is Mighty Mighty Bosstones “Rascal King”. It’s got a really driving beat, the horns are peppy, the lyrics are encouraging and it usually comes on about 2/3 of the way through a 5k and pushes me through to the end of the run. I misplaced my wee first gen ipod nano at some point during the move to our new house. Now I have to deal with the angry rap/metal played at the gym. Not so encouraging really.

Also very fond of U2.

Another favorite tune is Hot Hot Hot by Buster Poindexter.
