Lately, there's a podcast that has that effect on me. When Elizabeth isn't around to motivate me, fake conversation in the form of podcasts is a good second. Recently, a friend of mine introduced me to Witch, Please, a podcast led by two professors who deconstruct, critique, and analyze Harry Potter through various social and political lenses. Obviously, this is a podcast tailor-made with me in mind.
Too Far Gone by Sir Sly. I actually like every song on their album, but this one is a favorite because of its steady, catchy tempo. I like starting a run with this song because it reminds me to ease into it and not go out too fast.
Color by Finish Ticket is super catchy and fun. The song feels earnest and hopeful, which is just how I like to feel when I'm reaching for a PR on race day.
Colors by Halsey. I've noticed that the themes of color and ghosts are pretty popular in alternative music right now, but I'm not complaining! This may seem like an odd choice of song to run to, but again, I like the earnest tone and the feeling of reaching toward something.
Sweet Disaster by Dreamers. This song is catchy and fun! I could listen to this one on repeat for an entire run if Elizabeth would let me! It really captures the free, frivolous feeling a hard run can light inside me.
Life Itself by Glass Animals. I pretty much love everything they come out with, but this one especially has a fun tempo for running. This song is upbeat and the chorus especially motivates me to pound the pavement and just run my heart out.
