There are two types of people in this world, people who can run without music and the rest of us. I can only run without music if I'm running with fun people and even then I reserve the right to say alright now stop, music time. I LIKE RUNNING TO MUSIC! SO SHOOT ME! It blows my mind when I other runners try to fight the rest of the world who prefer to run with music. "BUT IT'S NOT SAFE AND THE RACE DIRECTOR SAYS NO MUSIC." They scream, stamping their feet and crossing their arms over their chest. To those people I say --
Yes, safety first. But this can be solved by running with one ear bud in instead of two. (I actually prefer running with one ear bud in during a race. You get the best of both worlds! You get your Katy Perry Firework when you hit the wall and the spectators screaming your name.) Some of us actually enjoy running to music! (AND how would I dance run if I weren't listening to some Beyonce?)
I keep being asked what I listen to on my runs right now so I went ahead and took a screenshot of my long run playlist to share with you all. This guy is about 2 hours and 37 minutes long so if you're looking for a half marathon playlist, I've got you covered.
It's a pretty diverse playlist but I love me some Top 40 an some good old fashion Rock N' Roll. And honestly, if "I Wanna Dance With Somebody" isn't on your playlist, then what are you doing with your life?
Whats your favorite song to run to right now? Mine is "Bang My Head" feat. Sia by David Guetta. That song IS MY JAM! Let me know in the comments below! Until next time, #RunSelfieRepeat.
