Get Motivated With Our Run Playlist

Throughout middle and high school, I was a runner. More specifically, a sprinter.  But outside of track meets, I always had a hard time motivating myself to run, especially any distance over the equivalent of my race – the 400 meter.  The one thing that could always make me do it was music.  Having the right soundtrack to your workout can go quite a long way in getting your mind in the right groove.  What stuck out to me most in our interview with Ryan of Philadelphia Runner, was his advice at the end: “Just run. I spend more time agonizing over going on a run then I do actually running. Put on your favorite song and take that first step out the door. The rest is easy.” It is so true, at least in my experience.  Once I’m out the door, with good tunes blasting in my ears, I completely forget why I don’t like to run, and could go for hours.

Here’s a mix of some songs that help get me moving – do you have a favorite artist or album to listen to when you run? Let me know in the comments, I’d love to check them out!

I’ve been running for a long time and that bra looks like it would give great support!

My favorite song to run to right now is: Say My Name by Odesza ft Zyra. It’s soooo good!!!

anything by disclosure is good to run to!

I am quite boring in that department since i often tend to have Tiesto playing :) Or any other dance music…
Have a great day
