Running for My Life is an album by Judy Collins, released in 1980. It peaked at No 142 on the Billboard Pop Albums charts, continuing a chart decline for Collins during the previous few years (a trend that would not reverse until 1984's Home Again brought her near No. 50).

The version of "Marieke" found here is a new re-recording.
