That picture is of my foot!  I got that tattoo about 5 years ago.  The bible verse is Isaiah 40:31- but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.

I am SO incredibly thankful that I am able to run.  My running is one of the ways that I worship Papa.  I know that it is only through His grace and love that I am able to engage in this physical activity that I love so much, and I don’t take a single step for granted when I’m out there!  Thus, my iPod is always rocking Christian hits!  Do you ever notice that whenever you look up “good running songs”, it’s very rare that you find a list of Christian running songs?  This thought occurred to me when I came across this pin:


I’m sure all these songs are great to run to, but there aren’t any christian songs on there, and that’s a common theme when trying to find running playlists.

I figured that since it’s not always easy to find “lists” of christian running songs, I would compile a short list of 30 of my favorite christian running songs.  I know some of these are oldies, but I love them anyway.  They all keep me moving and motivate me to keep going while keeping my eyes on the One who makes it all possible!  Here they are (in no particular order).

  1. Superchick – One More  (this one is FANTASTIC for speed workouts!  Especially intervals – “one more, go one more, yeah yeah”) 🙂
  2. Hillsong United – Oceans (where feet may fail) – my current favorite!
