Running Playlist

From time to time someone will ask me if I listen to music when I run. And if so, what songs do I like to run to?

Well…I definitely listen to music about 85% of the time I am running. Really the only time I don’t listen to music is when I’m out for a shorter run with Rachel.

Here are some of my favorite “newer” songs to run to. I’ll be honest, it’s pretty random and not necessarily all super clean songs. (Sorry mom!) It’s mostly rock/rap/upbeat because I need music to keep me motivated.

Current playlist:

  • Twenty One Pilots – Stressed Out, Ride
  • Justin Timberlake – Can’t Stop The Feeling
  • The Chainsmokers/Daya – Don’t Let Me Down
  • The Strumbellas – Spirits
  • Zara Larsson – Never Forget You
  • Mute Math – Light Up
  • Chvrches – Leave A Trace
  • Major Lazer – Lean On
  • Beck – Dreams
  • Flo Rida – My House
  • Walk The Moon – Shut Up And Dance
  • Fall Out Boy – Uma Thurman
  • Skrillex and Diplo ft. Justin Bieber – Where Are You Now
  • Jason Derulo – Want You To Want Me
  • Mark Ronson/Bruno Mars – Uptown Funk

    Flo Rida is my go to when I run. And my playlist definitely doesn’t reflect my personality. I feel like I get an alter ego (gangsta rap) when I run. 😁
