Oooooh boy it is hot out there!  With temps in the mid-90s and humidity levels above 90% as well here in Cincinnati, it's a wonder I'm exercising at all—let alone doing it outside! Yet somehow, I'm not alone. In my neighborhood, the walkers, runners and cyclists aren't missing a beat.

Speaking of beats, updating my workout playlist with some new songs has made a big difference in my summer workout motivation. Even when you're doing the same old routine, a new set of tunes can help break up the monotony. And when you're lacking motivation, those upbeat songs can make all the difference in getting your sneakers on your feet and your feet out the door.

Here are some of the fun tracks that have been motivating my summer (2013) workouts during the dog days of summer.
