I have done so much running this month. I randomly decided to run a half-marathon three weeks ago, and now I’m continuing to keep up with that level of training, because the weather is getting nice and nice why not just keep running, right? So, consequently I’ve been listening to a lot of music. Some really good music and some really bad music.
For example, Taylor Swift’s song, “22” is so bad. That is a bad, bad song. Some might say it is an insult to music. But for running (and also general dancing around like a 5-year-old) it’s perfect. The same goes for any song performed by pre-pubescent Disney Channel stars. So, so bad, but extra, ultra motivating while running. Why is that? Someone do an experiment and reveal these secrets of the brain to me.
This month (like many previous month’s playlists) my playlist is a varying potpourri of artists and genres. The top 12 songs I’ve been running to over the past 30 days range from obscure, failed Disney stars all the way to the great Led Zeppelin. Do with it what you will. Hopefully you’ll press play and have a great run!
