Running With Music

Since I've taken up running to exercise, I've found that listening to music is a big motivator in keeping one foot in front of the other. I'm constantly switching up the playlist on my phone, but I do have a few that you'll almost always find on my list.


  1. Uptown Funk is my jam! There's no way to be still when it comes on. Do you feel that running with music helps your time? My husband has some playlists for running with specific songs that he uses as "triggers" so he takes a break/starts running in sync to the songs. That's a great Queen song too by the way and I forever think of Baby Groot when I hear that song now too. lol

  2. I think it does help with my time, even if it's just to keep me motivated to keep moving (and Uptown Funk certainly does that, you can't stand still when it's on!) I tend to keep my playlist on shuffle, so it's not predictable, otherwise I tend to get bored. Right now it's hard to predict when I might need breaks/slower pace spots in my runs, so I just let the music go and slow down/speed up as I need regardless of the song.
