On today's Morning Show, we've been talking quite a bit about healthy choices, like staying hydrated and eating a healthy breakfast. Another piece to the complete health puzzle is exercise; as the weather is (allegedly) getting warmer, people are getting out to exercise more and more as they prepare for 5k runs, 10k runs, marathons or simply the beach-body days of summer.

And when it comes to exercise, a lot of people turn to music to keep them energized and motivated, and that got us wondering about the songs you might like to listen to when you exercise.

Certainly there are a lot of well-worn, big-beat tunes and jock jams that one hears in spin classes, aerobics sessions and the like, but they don't typically reflect the tastes of indie rock fans.

So for today's 9:30 Coffee Break, help us build a fitness playlist for The Current crowd. What songs get you energized and motivated for exercise? Send us your requests.
