couch to 5k {weeks 2-4}

So, I'm still not {what I would consider} a runner.
But, starting up week 5 of the Couch to 5k,
I'm beginning to feel a lot better about my running.
I've had some hard days, where all I really wanted to do was fall on the ground,
but I've pushed through & finished every workout so far.

I'm really, really slow, and I tend to use up all my energy during
the first half of the workout, which means I really have to push to finish.
But, I'm determined to at least make it to the end of the program,
and hopefully, the more I run, the better I'll get.

The one thing I don't have is a good running playlist...
I've been running without any music, which can get a little boring.
So, that brings me to my question for today...

What song is a must for your running playlist?

The Original ROCKY music, the WHOLE thing is awesome for a good motivational run ;)

I'm just on week 2 of my C25K now. I am so slow it's pathetic. But I guess the bright side is that there is only room for improvement because there is no way I could get worse.
