Mix Description

Grrl Power! The name says it all! 50 minutes of tracks from some of the hottest female artists in the world, both past & present, will have you running strong. While the mix has a mid-level tempo to get you warmed up, it increases in speed as you get tired, culminating in a 5 minute 160+bpm push at the end to help you power through your fatigue. Who runs the world!

Ouch! Only 3 stars for this one? Where did I go wrong in putting this one together?

@djriggz i think it's great! nothing like some serious girl-power songs to push through a cardio session after work!

@djriggz, I really like your other mixes, but since you asked "Where did I go wrong" on this one, I am going to be honest. I feel like this kind of mix is cliche. I feel like these are the CDs I'm constantly sent for group fitness classes. I feel like when people put "girl power" mixes together, I end up with bubblegum pop/top 40. I would like to see a girl power mix with more... power?! More edge. More Rock. (No, Avril Lavigne doesn't count). More Indie. Less Disney Channel Divas. .... now, that doesn't mean I don't like this mix. I would actually use this mix for a group fitness class where I have a broad age spectrum who will appreciate the sassiness of this mix. But I wouldn't Rock my Run with it. (I wanted to send you this privately because I KNOW not everyone feels this way but I did feel that you "guys" who put together "grrl" playlists could use a little direction from some of us running "grrls." )

@Jessica - Thanks for the love! Good to hear not everyone thought it was "meh" :)

@crazyrunningch icks - I hear you and really appreciate the honesty! It's really important that I get feedback from people with all kinds of interests so I can put together mixes that meet a variety of needs.

While most of this mix came in via request, I am definitely open to working on something less pop-y as well. Perhaps we could collaborate on something more edgy? Let's exchange emails: djriggz at

Ran to this last night and loved it. had a smile on my face! Fun mix to run to on a cold, dark Boston night with snow on the way (and a little on the ground!)
+1 # hadronarly 2012-01-22 06:24
I thoroughly enjoyed running to this. Though I would probably find it a bit embarrassing if anyone could overhear some of the songs I was listening to (ie Spice Girls and Gloria Gaynor!). Guilty pleasure all the way.
# shazsnod 2012-01-23 19:52
what is the mix song with Kelly Clarkson? that is a great fade.
Best part of this mix.

@djriggz... I LOVED this mix!!! Excellent! I looked down at my timer expecting to see 2 more rounds ( like usual, I start getting tired when there are 2 more rounds left) and I was very surprised when I looked and seen I only had seconds left of my last round! Music pushed me along the whole time.. def. my GO TO. Keep'em coming!

@djriggz- I just signed up with RockMyRun and so far this mix has been my favorite-- I liked the fades and intros for each song because it puts a new spin on the Top 40 songs you've chosen. It's one of those mixes that makes me feel like I didn't just download a mix that has all the same songs that I have on my own playlist-- nice work!
+1 # beth.shall 2012-01-29 21:24
This is my favorite, so far. I added 2 miles to my normal run and had a great time doing it!
# tamsin.lewis 2012-02-01 05:38
I really didn't like this mix.
I thought the mixing was terrible and the sound was really tinny.
13 minutes and 20-21mins in - have a listen. Awful - sorry.
# ninali 2012-02-01 18:32
This is a great mix for working abs and toning...loved it and can't get enough of it! Thx!
# sanhutch 2012-04-27 19:51
This is my first download from RockMyRun and I used this mix for my first 5 mile run of the season. I LOVED it!!! Thanks so much!!
# dbowen4 2012-05-05 13:50
good mix but the random really slow Katy Perry song "The one that got away" kind of ruins it when you're going fast and then that comes on...
# algambino 2012-06-29 11:18
Great mix!
# Emily.Wade.Neistadt 2012-07-10 18:05
This is my favorite mix so far, make more with mostly female vocals please!!! I also liked the blending of the songs, particularly CA Gurls and Girls Just Wanna Have Fun- very cool!! Thanks djriggz, more please!!!

this was my first download from Rock My Run and overall, I thought it was a solid mix. Some of the transitions are a bit rough -- but I like the song selection a lot.
# 2013-01-12 06:39
My favourite mix so far. Would love to find more with just female singers.
