I'm a little weird in that I like fairly slow music when I run. I listen to the same kind of music I listen to when I'm hanging out or writing; generally, I don't really like pop and more upbeat stuff, and because running-music is about amping up my joy, I stick with what makes me happy. Sometimes I even run to musical soundtracks (I especially love The Phantom of the Opera and Les Mis for races).
For A1A, I've been compiling a list of songs that help me feel fully in the moment when they come on my playlist, and I'm putting them together for race day.
|The full list can be seen on the right.|
I don't have a particular order to these songs, because if one comes on I'm not feeling in the moment, I can always skip it. I'm not planning my miles down to the track listing or anything. But knowing I have a fresh, specifically curated playlist is helping get me hyped for race day!
Here is a link to the playlist I put together. There's probably some stuff in there that you may think how could anyone run to this?! but if you want to know what I like to listen to on the run, check it out below.
