One thing that is extremely important to me when I run is the music playing in my ears. It boosts my mood and keeps me going, providing motivation when necessary as well!
I have a variety of playlists–one for running outside, one for the treadmill, one for shorter runs, one for morning running, a Bollywood playlist, one for Christmastime, etc. It all depends on what kind of mood I’m in and what I need to motivate me at that particular time. I often find myself making new playlists just because I get bored with the old ones.
I’ve already started working on my playlist for marathon day (April 13th–so close!), but I promised myself that I would not listen to it until the actual race. It maintains some element of surprise that will keep things interesting!
There are several songs, however, that tend to make an appearance on most of my running playlists, and that’s what I want to share with you today.
Some of these songs inspire me to run harder, some of them have a good beat to keep me energized, and some just make me happy.
I hope you’ll find some new songs on this list that you enjoy!
