Hi friends! I know it's been a little bit of time since I've shown my face here and my blogging status has been in limbo lately, but as I predicted would happen, my creative spark (and need to talk about running incessantly) has returned and I'm back to share some fun stuff with y'all! Specifically, I wanted to share the top songs from my current running/cardio playlist, because summer + running + good music = bliss! Well, at least I think so anyway.
My last running playlist update was at the beginning of the summer, so this one is certainly long overdue. I've added a good amount of songs to my running repertoire since then. Plus, I also want to share my 2016 NYC Marathon Playlist.
I am DYING for summer to just get here already. I'm pretty sure most if not all of you feel the same way. It feels like this weird, not-so-sunny, quasi-spring we've had here on the East Coast just won't make way for warmer weather. While I was doing laundry the other day — which obviously consists mostly of running clothes — I pulled one of my long-sleeve fleeces from the basket to toss in the machine and said to Mark, "It's depressing that I've had to wear this recently."
A new season means new tunes for my running playlist, and I'm bursting with excitement to share some of my favorite new jams with you all! As I mentioned back in January, one of my goals for 2016 was to explore more new music, specifically so that I could continually update my running playlists instead of listening to the same batch of songs over and over and over again. Running with new music is such a simple way to keep your running routine fresh and exciting, so I hope that by continuing to share my favorite workout songs here, I can help you all find new music that you love to run to as well
I'm mad at myself. I used to do these running playlist updates consistently every month, but I've been so bad at keeping up with them lately, which is a shame because I don't update my running playlists as often and listen to the same batch of songs over and over again for far too long
Crafting a perfectly organized playlist of running music was once an enthusiastic passion of mine. Well, it still is, only I haven't been very involved with it lately. Wanna hear a sad story? I've been listening to the same playlist of running music for, oh, what has it been? Like eight months now. It's true. Since the NYC marathon in November, I've been listening to the same 45 or so songs for nearly every running workout
I'm running a marathon tomorrow. Even though I've done the training and I've been planning this race for almost two years now, that sentence still sounds crazy to me. If five years ago you told me I'd voluntarily sign up for a marathon, I probably would have laughed in your face. It's still hard to believe that running went from a sport that I completely hated to an activity that is now such an integral and meaningful part of my life.
