Running Jams

When I run outside I often forgo music, but when I’m stuck on a treadmill, it’s pretty much the only thing that gets me through—even if it’s just a mile.

I have a few upbeat playlists that I typically circle through (my series of hipster dance party compilations leftover from my early-20’s titled “Danceachusetts” usually do the trick), but I decided to start a “run” specific playlist this month that I could keep adding to. Here’s my work in progress—anyone have any song suggestions to throw in the mix? I’m all ears.

Oh, and as a side note, I have it arranged by musical genre: 1. Pop/Dance, 2. Hipster Dance/Electronic, 3. Classic Rock/Alternative.

  1. Somehow I ended up with Bleed It Out by Linkin Park as the first song on my gym mix and every time I hear it on the radio, I get this surge and my brain is like, “it’s go time! run!”
    I’m not a fan of their music generally speaking but that one song is great for getting amped up physically.
