Who isn't complaining about the wrath of old man winter this year? It's been bone-chilling cold. It's been snowy and icy, making me think I up and moved to Alaska or Canada's Northwest Territory. Sure, those snowy conditions work for skiing, but good luck if you're trying to train for Boston or just grab a break from the indoor workout. get the bike off the trainer in the living room (I'm convinced mine's shacking up there until at least May).

If there were ever a month where I could use a new workout playlist, this would be it. I have yet to find a decent Colorado Springs radio station--yes, I'm sorely missing WTMX and WXRT in Chicago for helping to fill out my playlist--and my regular playlist is about the most overused bunch of songs ever. What I need is Run Hundred's latest top 10 list of workout songs. Exactly what I need to power me through that next sweat session.

Here's the full list according to votes placed at Run Hundred, the web's most popular workout music blog.

Enrique Iglesias & Pitbull - I'm a Freak - 128 BPM

Neon Trees - Sleeping with a Friend - 107 BPM
