Motivation: Running Songs

One of the questions I get a lot when people ask me about my running is whether or not I listen to music. And the answer is always an emphatic “YES!”. I am a huge music lover and there’s nothing better than finding songs that help motivate and push you during a run. I understand some people have an aversion to depending on music. Music should never take over–I think it should just be an added source of entertainment. πŸ™‚

I rotate through songs quite often and find new ones to run to all the time, but this year there have been a consistent list of songs that always ‘pick me up’. I’ve included a list here with their links on Spotify so that you can listen to them right away (and if you haven’t downloaded Spotify yet and would like an invite, please let me know.)

Looking back on this list, I realize it is completely random. Enjoy!

Do you listen to music when you run? What’s your ‘go to’ running song lately?

    Amazing list! I am due for a playlist revamp, and I hate thinking about what to download next so this is great. I go back and forth with listening to music… I guess it depends what’s going on in my head πŸ™‚ Anyway, my ‘go to’ song is currently Rihanna – We Found Love. Add that one!
